  1. VELO
    great Spin class 00:45

    Test to see how my leg would do, and it went well.

  2. RUN
    good Trial run with Sue 3 mi 00:39 12:54 pace

    I decided to give the Pig a try even though I was exhausted emotionally from everything with my mom, and my leg was still hurting. Went down there with some friends who were doing the half, and the... read more

      So glad you gave it a try. It's been a really tough time for you both emotionally and physically. You did great and were smart to stop when you were in pain. Don't give up on marathons Diane. You'll get there

    alright Clearing the cobwebs 3 mi 00:32 10:33 pace

    Oh man, it felt good to get out there and move after doing almost nothing for 2.5 weeks. I just concentrated on my form and my breathing, and didn't look at my watch.

      good to hear you dont have fracture. the fact that you are thinking about the impact of wether to run or not shows you would not be doing it for selfish motives. run knowing you have people in your life that love and support you and you them!

      Run your race Diane and be strong. I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom in hospice. I've added her to my prayer list. I'm sure she would love to see your medal!

    alright Aerobic test run 2.28 mi 00:33 14:28 pace

    Run/walk to see how my leg would do. There's still a lot of tightness in my right leg, and a pulling sensation in the top of the leg. But nothing hurts, and my knee did fine. I'll have t... read more

    My knee felt a little iffy this morning, but I went to the gym to try the elliptical, thinking I would stop the minute anything hurt. But it was fine! It felt so good to get my heart rate up and w... read more

  7. Over a week with no runs! Off to the doctor again today to find out if I'll be healed in time for the Pig. It's getting a little scary.

      That run downtown on 4/11 destroyed my legs. I think I tried to get one too many runs out of my Brooks--should have switched to the new shoes! I was worried that I had a stress fracture in my hip again, but after 2 doctor visits and 2 massages, they have assured me that it is tissue damage. I have to rest and let it heal, and it's making me crazy.

      I'm glad it's not a stress fracture. You gotta be more careful about your old shoes. I got a lot of twinges in my ankles that really freaked me out before I realized it was just time to get new shoes. Take care
