Running the Road to Recovery - 8

Running the Road to Recovery is about coming back from an illness. In June, 2012 I was in training for a 4-mile race, and was able to run 3-4 miles at a decent (OK, mediocre) rate of speed. A kidney infection that triggered a secondary infection to my knees derailed my training. But only temporarily.

I feel like I'm just about back where I should be. This past week I increased the distance to 3.25 miles, and manged to keep the time under an hour (for me, that's a big deal). I know I can run a 5k race, and at pretty much my pre-illness time, too. Next goal: 4 miles even.
