My foot felt pretty good today so I went for a little 2 mile run, out to the old barn and back for a total of 2.10 my pace was slow and easy (9:10 average) for a total time of 18:58... After that I jumped on the elliptical for 10 minutes, my foot kind of bothered me a bit on that but it wasn't to bad. After that I did my upper body strength training and then some push-ups, I then finished up with some stretching. My foot seemed to do alright running wise, I'm mean it was still a little bit painful but it seems to be improving, I see the PT tomorrow for some more therapy and the good old astym scrapping,  not fun!

Later.

I went to the PT today and he did my last A-stym treatment, the foot is feeling better, but I still have a way to go before I'm 100%... He looked at my running form today and had me do some step downs and I am extremely week in my quads and hip area, and he thinks the lack of strength and bad form have been the main cause of all these little nagging injuries. So he has me on some excersizes to improve my strength in these areas, hip and quad, and wants to see me back in 2 weeks to see if I am improving. It was insteresting to see how I did on the strength tests for my hip and quads and I was pathedic!!! I think that I am on the right course and once I get the strength that I need in these area's I will be alot better off and my PT seems to think that I haven't reached my full potiential because of my lack of strength in the hip and the quads.  I am feeling a little better about things it just going to take some time. I might do some running later today and practice on my form.

Later.

I ran out towards the Stake center this morning, the foot was a little bit more sore than normal, it must have been the A-stym yesterday he worked me pretty hard. But after I got going it seemed to get better, it must have been the advil that I popped just before I headed out. It felt pretty good as the run went on so I extended out to the old barn just to add a little more on, my legs were feeling it for sure it must be from the strength excersizes that the PT gave me, they must be working cuz I could really feel them today.  Average pace was 9:20 with a total time of 37:38, slow I know but right now I'll take whatever I can get, average HR was 153 way high for the pace but I know it will come down as I get my fitness back. I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and then some push-ups along with my usual stretching. A pretty good day as far as working out goes, I hope I can have the same type of day tomorrow.

Later.

I ran out to the old barn and back for a total of 2.45 miles, the foot was a bit of a bother but I was able to get through it. When I finished I did my foot strength training and after that my foot seemed to improve so I jumped on the treadmill for another 1.30 miles at a 9:30 pace, the foot felt better on that one. Average pace was around 9:30 with a total time of 34:10 with my HR average around 150. I can't believe all the fitness that I have lost since I injured my foot, pretty crazy really. Oh well, at least I'm back at it to some extent, I still have a ways to go before this darn foot is a 100% but I feel I'm on the right track.

See ya later.

I ran out past the stake center and my foot didn't start to hurt right off so that was a good sign, but then in the middle it was a bother but then towards the end I was actually able to lenghten my stride a little bit, it felt good. My pace was still slow average pace was 9:11 with my total time being 31:42, my HR average was 148 so a little lower and my pace was a little faster today. I finished up with my standard upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I'll be taking the weekend off, we are heading to St. George to support all the Marathoners so I'll hang out by the pool and watch some of the runners come in and dream of next year:-)

 

See ya later.
