Not a lot going on last week. I spent most of the week trying to get over a cold, so no pool running or other gym activity. I felt uniformly cruddy while keeping up with my usual obligations for the first half of the week, but I went home early both Thursday and Friday afternoons to rest and relax. Then I finally started to feel better….funny how that works.
BUT on the bright side, I am ready to (slowly) start running again! I went out for a mile Sunday to see how it felt. I made a half mile loop by myself to make sure the sidewalks were clear, then stopped at home to take Kara out for the second half mile loop. She also has not been running since her leg injury and surgery, so we will be rebuilding our endurance together.
The injury area was a bit sore afterwards, but not painful. It felt the same way after my PT session Friday – we did a lot of balance work on the Bosu and wobble board. My left leg balance was decent, although noticeably wobbly compared to the right. Pre-injury it was the other way around (as I’m left-handed/footed). So, making progress but still a lot of strength to regain.
This week I have a running form evaluation scheduled. Hopefully that will be my last PT session for a while. And I suppose I should get back to pool running too.
