Been getting on the elliptical and bike this week and am hoping to go for a trial run on Saturday. Crossing my fingers that all goes well.
|Wished I looked this good|
Well, it feels good and hasn't caused any harm so why not! How do you feel about compression gear?
I rode the bike for 10 miles on Thursday evening. I couldn't have asked for better weather. But the whole time I am riding, I was thinking that the bike was more of a work out then my runs. Maybe I need to get out and cross train a little more.
On a side note, I spent the Labor day weekend sitting around our campsite with my leg elevated and keeping it iced to reduce the swelling (which I can proudly say is 95% gone). I was frustrated with the swelling, was fighting some infection, and feeling sorry for myself that I couldn't get out and kayak. So I read a book, "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Wind" by Wm Kamkwaba.
A story about a young man in Malawai Africa who uses his ingenuity and determination to make life better.
You stop feeling sorry for yourself after you read a book like this.
Also a reminder that I am running with Team World Vision at the Chicago Marathon to raise money for better water in countries around the world. To give go to: support.worldvision.org/goto/RobyneSpillers
Thanks and have a great weekend. Hope that your run is as good as mine is going to be. (I optimistically know that it is going to be great)
