Back on the treadmill today for another 5 miles. I didn't push it, and was just happy to keep moving for 5 miles. My hand was in a continual uncomfortable cramp the entire time. I ran while grasping my left hand tightly with my right hand to try to relieve the cramping. I'm hoping all this arm and hand pain have subsided by the time I run the next marathon that I have planned in Washington state for April 15th. It feels like some of the feeling is returning to my fingers, and it's coming back in a painful way. I hope it is actually a good sign.
It's really mentally challenging trying to train on the treadmill when I'd much rather be outside enjoying the sunshine. But maybe not today's -30 with wind chill -50 sunshine!
