  1. walk
    alright up to 4 miles now 4.1 mi 01:02 15:07 pace

    Yesterday's 3.5 mile walk went so well I pushed it to 4 today. Furthest walk since November. Weird intermittent stuff firing off and on throughout. Not sure what to think, but very hard not... read more

      Kristin, all sorts of things fire off when I walk. In fact, almost more goes on when I do a long walk than when I run. I think it's part of healing and also that we're hyper aware of weaknesses these days. I totally understand feeling like you'll never get back to where you were--I so miss my long-run Saturdays--but things will get easier and you will get faster again.

      NOT zero. You have a history of good health choices, fitness, core work, plus the walking, cycling, and swimming you've been doing. Zero would be coming off the couch and you certainly aren't there!

      Scarlett, I am almost never caught because I go on off times when most of the folks are lap swimmers like me, but every now and then (like this morning) I get a snoutful of nasty that just undoes me. How can people not realize?!?

    tired more treadmill 3.5 mi 01:07 19:09 pace

    Still really sore. Got through the walking with no numbness in the leg at all, though, which is encouraging. Did all PT exercises after and followed it up with foam roller. Tired!

      Kristin, I did the same things! Love it. Let's see, as for what to read next... Have you read Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell? Or Fearless by Eric Blehm? (Nicole, I know you've read Fearless.) Or how about The Perfect Mile by Neal Bascom? Or Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer? I'll tag you guys on a facebook post so you can easily look these over. :)
