It Won't Be Long Now
That is what I need to keep telling myself. I did my PT today - and the foot continues to improve in different ways. The calf muscles are looser, the tendon is not as tight, and the exercises not as tough to do.
But I miss running! Tomorrow is the Outback 12K and I wish I could be there.
It won't be much longer and I will be out there. The orthotics should come in next week, a few days to break them in and then I can begin running again. In the meanwhile, best of luck to Maddy at the Outback 12K!!! She will have to run for the both of us! :-)
Meanwhile, I will plow on with the elliptical. You know, I don't really like the elliptical...I like it less than the treadmill. I did manage to make it a little more interesting on Thursday. I tuned in my iPod to a 133 bpm Podrunner mix and used that to help keep my pace up.
Podcasting update: I now have my iRiver and have downloaded Audacity. I am still reading up on podcasting but this looks like it will be fun. I will probably be ready to take it out on a test "run" about the time I can begin running again. When I was in college (and also for a couple of years afterwards, part time) I worked at an AM radio station as a DJ and really enjoyed it - so I am looking forward to experimenting with the podcast world.
Countdown to next run: ~ 1 week
