I still have not be able to go running. Yesterday we went to a lake north of us, Lake Padden. It has a 2 1/2 mile trail around the lake that we walked. My leg was a bit sore this morning, but not too bad. I woke up this morning wishing I could go for a run. Instead I decided to walk to work. It's not that far, takes me about 5 min from my house. I decided to go about 5 min before I normally leave for work. I always leave a half hour before work starts because I like to be there early to get settled for the day.
I left at my normal time and walked at a fairly fast walk, all downhill. I got to work and felt fabulous. I wasn't tired, I was energized and the day went really fast. Chris had told me in the morning that if I wanted him to, he would come pick me up at the end of the day. I was feeling good, so decided to go ahead and walk home . . . yeah, remember a few sentences where I said it was all downhill . . . well, going home was all uphill. It was very warm and I was definitely sweating by the time I got home. But again, I felt like I had accomplished something. I really wanted to go for a run this evening. I think I'll walk again tomorrow. =)
After dinner tonight I decided to do some cardio type things while watching tv. I did some running in place, and jumping jacks. It was interesting that I was able to do that but I can't run outside. I think I'm going to try to run around the block tomorrow and see how my leg holds up. That will have been a week since I hurt it.
Yesterday while reading some blogs I found these quotes and I really liked them so I thought I would share them with you.
When someone asks you how it's going, you reply "Forward!"
Because that's the truth.
“Everything after ‘but’ is bullshit.”
