Tough Road

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!
