Slow start

Since my injury, I have had a hard time getting back into running.  I was supposed to take 4 weeks off from running but I had to do more than that due to pain.  Running the Warrior Dash was great but very risky.  Fortunately I didn't hurt myself any worse, but I still was not able to jump back into running.  I started going out for a mile and a half run once a week for 2 weeks.  Then I increased to 2 miles for 2 weeks.  A couple of weeks ago, I started forcing myself to run 2 or 3 times a week and 2 nights ago, I was able to go 3.1 miles.  It felt so good to be able to run that far.  Some of my runs are good and pain free.  Others are miserable and painful the whole time.  I can tell my leg is getting better but it still hurts.  I have devoted a lot of time to stretching before and after my runs.  I know that helps a ton.  Running makes me feel so good and I wish my injuries would stop slowing me down!
