Hello to all my fellow Runners!
It has been a tough road these last 12 weeks, I am sorry I have been missing from the blog world. My big girl job has been overwhelming this summer. This is the busiest we have ever been in a while. Job security, I guess. Although I was hoping to become a professional runner at some point in my life. hahaha On top of being injured and I really have had nothing to talk about. Surprising I know!
So here is the low down! I am officially out of the cast, off crutches and cleared to cross train for 2 weeks. I am allowed to walk outside or on the mill for 15 minutes, spin for 15 minutes and hop on the elliptical for 15 minutes 3 days a week. I can also swim, which I will take advantage of because I can do that daily. And of course, lots and lots of stretching.
After 2 weeks I can mix it up a little and throw in some light running. And by light, I mean short little jogs of 4 minutes for a total of a 20 minute workout. Hey it's a start right? I will have to monitor my foot at all times and listen to it. I didn't really know feet could talk, but mine do every now and then.
Getting back into the swing of things is going to be tough. I haven't really enjoyed becoming a couch potato, well maybe I have a little, but my body is going to rebel I can already feel it.
Why is it so easy to get comfortable doing nothing?
I hope you all have been having fantastic runs/races this summer....
It may take me a while but I am looking foward to catching up on all your blogs!
If you are going to run Run Half Crazy!
