On the running front... After a week of no running, I went for a run up on the mesa with Susan this morning and felt pretty good. No pain in the left foot. I most definitely didn't push it at all and showed some good self restraint. What a relief that my foot felt better. I'm not out of the woods quite yet as it will be interesting to see how it responds as I try to run more miles this week. Good start to the week though! Felt really good to run again.
Since I wasn't running, I mountain biked a few times last week to keep my legs moving and work the lungs a bit. Still not as fun as running for me but still had a pretty good time (although, I suck pretty bad at it, having had to walk my bike through some sections of the Schultz Creek Trail...I think I could almost run it as fast as I biked it...pretty lame riding. Still learning I guess...and who cares anyway!). It was a great way to get tired and keep my mind off of the hurt foot so mission accomplished on that...
Last Week Total:
12 miles (all on one day with a few hundred feet of elevation gain)
Sunday- 0 miles
Monday- 6.5 miles (5 miles on mesa + 1.5 miles work (foot felt good, one step at a time...)
