I had a septoplasty on Thursday June 28th. It took a bit of healing but so far I am super happy with the results. I also had sinus surgery and I can breathe much better already and my nose looks straighter to me, even though no one else can tell, I'm happy with it. I didn't want to change my appearance at all anyway. The surgery did however derail my running. I took about a week off. I started up again yesterday running 4.5 miles. It was HOT! Super hot! I got an early start but I still was so hot I ran out of water around mile 3. I wear the belts with several water bottles attached. They are small and evenly proportioned so I love it. I think once I get to higher mileage it might chaff, but so far I'm totally fine with the belt. Other than the heat, I felt great. Even though I felt great, I didn't feel like I could run much further. This kind of stinks because in April I ran 13miles and felt great and now at 4.5 I'm not coasting, but that is the way running works for me and I think most people. If you take your mileage down, you feel it, period. So I'm going to truck slowly back up. I am right on target for my training schedule and that is really all I care about at the end of the day.
I am going to do a quick 3 miles tonight, the weather has cooled off and I have some stresses in my life today so I'm welcoming the run!
