Running!?!

Well it’s that’s time of season. I’m getting married in October and in order to look my best, it’s time to start working out and dieting.

Recently I’ve taken up running – I’m already three weeks into a program that will get me prepared for a 5k race. I’ve been trying take it slow and yet remain on schedule with the program. I’ve had some slight pain in my hips and knees but surprisingly little – given my joint problems. One worrisome thing – the last few days my legs seem to be swollen. I’m going to keep my eye on it but I’m not sure why that would be. I’m not feeling pain of the pain that I had when I was first diagnosed with blood clots but nonetheless I’ll keep my eye on it (also, note to self, it might be time to get a fabric measurement tape to keep track of my dimensions – to record if I am swelling and if I’m losing any inches in other areas!)

My best!
