Calling this marathon training doesn't seem like the right title this week, since I am just hovering in limbo, but hopefully by the weekend I will have answers and some real direction. My bone scan appointment is Wednesday and I hope it won't take long to get the results.
Week seven, I cycled 21 miles, spent 30 minutes on the elliptical, four sessions of weight training, which included some core work, and 12 miles of running.
I rested from running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday...etc. and it felt like a realllllly long week. I think I ate my weight in dark chocolate not running all week. Saturday rolled around and my shin felt fine all week, and I am very nervous about losing everything I have been working toward, so I went out with run buddy for a twelve miler, which was my planned drop back week distance.
12 miles in 2:08 - it was cold, but the sun was shining, we took our time, chatted, and I clicked the miles off without a hint a pain in my leg. I was so glad to be out. The only thing that ached - my feet, I think my shoes are about shot already, even with new inserts my feet felt a little achy.
I got these early Sept. I can't believe I need to replace them already.
Sunday I got back on the bike at the gym.
Thankfully, since hubby is working out with me, we hit it hard a few times this week, because alone I would have flaked out.
How many pairs of shoes do you buy a year?
Have you ever had a bone scan, how long did it take to get the results, if so?
