Flock of Seagulls

And I ran. I ran finally today.

Seriously, I ran!  12 weeks since the 13 Relay I have finally run (excluding the ill-advised mile time-trial).  And the best part is that it didn't hurt.  Today was my second run; Tuesday I did 15 minutes on the treadmill and today I did 22 minutes.  Both times I experienced no discomfort in the Lisfranc region either during the run or the next day (we'll see if anything comes up tomorrow).  So that is pretty encouraging.  I have been really impatient to get back out there and so far this is a good start.

While I have been down I have filled my time by biking.  Unfortunately I have been forced to use my old warhorse of a mountain bike.  It has got me from point A to point B but damn, that thing is a beast to get up hills. But you gotta do what you gotta do.  Thankfully the biking has kept me from completely losing all fitness so now I am ready to get back out on the roads and start running again, as long as the foot progress continues to be good.

Fortunately I was only sidelined for four fifths of the summer.  No wait, not fortunately at all.  Damn I hate being injured.
