Back in the Swing of Things


I promise that I have been meaning to get back to blogging, but life has been so hectic these past few weeks!  My training still is not 100% back on track, and I am continuing to take it as slow as possible. 

I still remain crazy active, even without running 20+ miles a week.  I’ve focused on swimming and getting my foot used to walking without the boot.  Walking the new pup has helped get some mileage going that is for sure.  He was cleared to walk last week, and we have been hitting the streets almost every day.

Monday at lunch I ran a 5K on the treadmill at the gym.  I did throw in walking breaks, and also have to tape my arch up, to help keep pressure off of my navicular bone.  It’s been going quite well.   I am hoping to be back on a training schedule soon, and to be able to build everything up to do the White Rock half-marathon in December.  I may have to walk a little more than I had hoped, but finishing is finishing.  Next year I will do the full 26.2 miles!

  1. That is great news! It sounds like you are really taking it slow which I bet will make you a really strong runner in the end. Congrats!

    • Thanks Beth! Yeah I am hoping it makes me a smarter runner. It’s hard to not get ahead of one’s self when it comes to training, but maybe with this last injury, I have learned my lesson. We shall see!!
