      Great news! Definitely seems like a good idea not to push for a little longer, but awesome that it didn't hurt walking!

      I like you plan for the next week and the fact you resisted the urge to run when it would of been so easy too. Coming back from injury is very tough mentally.

    I've got to admit, I'm not sad that I'm not running today. It's brutally hot & humid out there.

  4. walk

    Decided to try a walk and see how the calf feels. The longer I walked, the better it felt. I really wanted to run but didn't let myself. Stretched before and after. Determined to do cardio all... read more

    It wasn't as good as the run I was hoping to do today but it was still pretty good. Hoping time on the bike keeps me in shape so I can jump back into training when my calf is healed.

  6. RUN
    injured 2 mi

    Sports doc told me to run 10-20 minutes to test out the calf today. First mile felt totally normal (Yay! Look at me I'm running again!) then around 1.5 it started feeling tight, I walked for a... read more

    Got the okay to hop on the bike today. Calf felt okay. Off to do my PT stretches like the good marathon training patient that I am.

  8. RUN

    Half mile into today's run and I had a stabbing pain in my calf. Pulled up short, evaluated, limped home & called the sports doc. Verdict: severe calf strain but not a tear. And so we do s... read more

      Thanks Lyndsay :) It's getting better every day - proof that rest works, even though it's soooooo hard. Was back at the doc for more ART work today and hoping for the all clear for a short run by the end of the week.

  10. RUN

    An easy 50 minutes just like the plan dictates. Trading today's cross training for tomorrow's run because tomorrow I have fun plans with the kids.

  11. RUN
    4.34 mi 00:50 11:31 pace

    And so week #9 begins. The good side: my stamina and energy were strong. The bad side: the fair doesn't smell any better on day 10 than it did on day 3. That was a rough half mile.

      Luke does this when he's over a run. "What if I get hit by a car?!" I don't know. Keep it up and I'm going to shove you into traffic.

      per your comment on my ride: yes, the kids are nervous in the street! I get it---I myself am nervous but that makes me more aware. I want him to be nervous (so he's aware) but not scared, because then as he gets older he'll be limited in his riding. I showed him what to do, how to ride on the edge of the street, not in the middle, but not too close to cars so he doesn't get doored. Also crossed all streets with lights using the pedestrian button, as I wanted to show him that safety feature.
