YES YES YES!!!!

I am back to running!!! I am really excited about it. I took it easy so no 2 miles in 20 minutes today. I got about 1.87 miles in 20 minutes, but I kept running up to 21 minutes to get 2 miles. So far, my knees are holding up :).

The bad news is the right palm now hurts. I think it's a carryover from all that snow shoveling 3 weekends ago. It was sore for a while and I ignored it. Now it really hurts when I put pressure on it, like when I open a bottle. Surprisingly, it doesn't hurt when I hold the dumbells. The funny thing is I bought a bottle of shelled pistachios yesterday. Well, I wanted to eat it last night but I couldn't because I couldn't open the bottle (LOL!!!). So inspite of the annoying pain, I guess there is something good that comes out of it. I took some ibuprofen an hour ago and hoping it kicks in soon.

Gotta go and study some more! Later!
