I've been given the go-ahead by my physical therapist to start some light running again. Finally. Four weeks off because of some annoying Achilles tendinitis had me a little stir crazy.
In the last week, I've been on five easy runs ranging from two miles to ten miles. The painful burning (tendinitis) is gone, but there is still some lingering tightness.
I'm told that more massage and more light running with help loosen up the tightness. So my fingers are crossed that I'll be up to full speed before I head off to Germany in a month. My catchphrase over the past week has been "cautiously optimistic."
Here are a few photos from my Sunday run with Buzz and Sadie.
Glad to hear you are back on the roads/trails! I had the achilles stuff a few years ago and had to take 6 weeks off. BLECH!ReplyDelete
Blech is right. Ugh! But it's doing better now at least. :)Delete
So glad you are able to run again! And those pictures are AMAZING.ReplyDelete
Me too. ;)Delete
I'm glad you're back out there, doing what you love. I'm optimistic (not even cautiously so), and I am looking forward to going to Germany with you...but I'd cheer you on whether you're running, eating a schnitzel, or drinking a pilsner. <3ReplyDelete
Running, schnitzel, AND pilsner. I don't like all this 'or' talk.Delete
