Three- things Thursday

1. I changed the title and quote to my blog! What do you think?

2.I have signed up for National Half, and so have some my favorite people....can't wait!!

3. I am hoping the doc will clear me, next Monday, to start (my) running (rehab). It's 8 wks post break, which is about 2-4 weeks before he predicted I could run, but my healing has gone much quicker than he predicted. My cast was off 3 wks before he predicted, I began baring weight 2 weeks before he predicted, and my my range of motion and strength have progressed so well, he didn't feel the need to send me to maybe, just maybe, clearance for running will come early as well! :)

Have a great day!

Week in review (rehabbing: wk 1)

Woo-hoo!! I'm working out(!!!) and I feel my ankle getting stronger daily! I actually ran a few steps this weekend (unconsciously) getting out of the crosswalk for a speeding car to pass. After I realized what I did, first I thought to myself "oops", but then I realized that those few running steps didn't hurt! Ya! (Granted this was like 5 running steps, not 5 miles, but still made me smile!:)

Below is my cross training frenzy week:

Week 11/7-11/13

Pool x1 hour
Body Pump x1 hr

MD check up, and I was cleared to start cross training!! So....x1 hr on elliptical!

pool x1 hour and 15 mins

Body Pump ( snuck in before CAR happy hour)


Pool running x 1 hr
Elliptical x 1 hr

Body Pump x1 hour
Elliptical x1 hour
walking (as cardio) 15 minutes.

My ankle is feeling stronger and is tolerating the elliptical very well. I plan to incorporate biking this week, and continue to increase my walking (cardio) time. I may even attempt yoga:)
