In the meantime I am allowed to run "IF" it feels OK. I had planned to run on Sunday, but after doing a bunch of yardwork on Saturday all my muscles were tight and I thought it best to scale back to a walk instead.
I did pick up my new insoles a couple days ago, and so far so good. You can certainly tell there is something in your shoe. It's oddly comforting yet uncomfortable all at the same time. Not painful uncomfortable, just different. I REALLY want to try running in them soon.
There is some exciting plans coming up in my world ... but I'm not quite ready to reveal them. I want to be certain this stupid foot of mine is going to heal up and let me get on with what I love. Yes, it does involve running. Yes, it does involve a race. But it's NOTHING like I've ever done before and I'm really excited to try it out.
I decided last night that since I've had to cut back on running and am not allowed to attend my favourite fitness classes ... then it was time to turn back to an old love/hate of mine.
That's right ... pumping iron baby! I found a program I think I can live with, and since I have all the equipment I need right in my home, it's awfully silly to not do this. The best results I've ever seen were when I was lifting weights regularly. No matter how much cardio I have done, the weights is the one thing that has consistently changed my body shape and burned off the fat.
Yesterday was Day 1. Hopefully I can report some positive changes in about a month or so.
