I hope you are experiencing some relief from the snow packed winter as well.
I don't see my PT until the 17th, but I was given a few rules to follow until then.
Returning after injury:
Rule #1 Hills are bad...mmmkay
Up and down hill put a little additional impact on the tibia bone, so walk them, or go very easy and be sure to pick up knees, and never let your feet pound.
Rule #2 Use run/walk intervals
Rule #3 Keep your stride small
Speed Stay at a pace where exertion feels easy
Sunday I ran outside!
I walked a few minutes after I ran this and ended up jogging one more slower mile. It felt heavenly, sun, shorts, warmth...
All those rules went with the wind once I started moving, I just wanted to push.
I did make an effort to be very conscious going up and downhill, to be light on my feet, to lift my knees, but I just could not bring myself to stop and walk for a short run.
Monday I decided to try again. It's pretty dark at 5:30ish a.m., so I figured I would be a bit slower.
It's like walking through the dessert and finding water, you want to drink it, dip in it, pour it all over lol
I didn't push as hard as I did Sunday, but I just couldn't bring myself to walk during a 5K. A little part of me just needs to know I can still do it, so hopefully I have that out of my system.
Basically, I get about a D+ for following rules.
I suppose this is how folks get injured again, reigning it in takes some discipline.
I did take 10 days of rest after returning home from Disney ✓
|This morning was 98% humidity - this pace felt challenging|
Currently, I am caught up in one of those very busy phases of life. Too many tasks, not enough hours...I blink and three days have past. I hate it when I can't keep up with my blog reading, I really do miss my blog buddies, so as always, I promise I will catch up soon!
Why is it always easier to say you will do something than actually do it?
