As the week went on I kept hiking up and running a little bit quicker on the downhill. I was always very cautious and only increased my speed sightly each day, but I each day felt a little better. With a little improvement each day, each "run" I did became a bit more fun and a bit more like running. By the end of the week each run felt more like a run than a hike.
All in all, last week was very encouraging that I'll be back to 100% pretty soon. I plan to continue with a cautious approach, but I also hope to get in some runs next week where I run the whole time. Regardless, the best part of being mobile again is getting to spend time in the forest. I realize that regardless of my pace, its a lot of fun to spend time in the forest. Hopefully the next few weeks will bring a big increase in the time I spend hiking and running.
Here's some picture from the week:
