I started off with a 31 minute bike ride in my living room. I’m not going to lie… I am becoming a little discouraged with not being able to run. I am having doubts with my workouts and wondering if my foot will get better! I know that spin and swimming are a great cross training exercise but I still don’t feel like I am getting the workouts that I need to achieve my goals. My foot does feel better but I am afraid to run on it to see if it will go right back to the discomfort… Ahhhhh!

Today I had a few extra kids hanging around with my girls so I decided to take them to the kindergarten playground and let them play until my 2 older girls got out (it was early out day- noon)

They played with friends and their cousin (Emery) all day. I then had track practice. We have about135-145 kids (so far) and about 40 of them are distance runners.

They went on a 1 1/2 mile warmup, 7 400s and 3 600’s at a controlled fast and hard pace… With a 200 meter recovery. They ran 2 400’s and a 600, then repeated it that way… It was a tough workout for them. (Half the group didn’t do the workout because they just started track and have never run before.) They went on a distance run to start building a bass!

While we were waiting for dinner to be ready (the girls and I & neighbors- Corom had to work late) we went for a walk to the bank and to visit neighbors…

I did the whole bedtime routine and after dinner (a little after 9) I went to a friend of ours, house. We did the swim aerobics and treaded water for a while! I was able to get pool running in also. It was good! I was in the water for 53:41.

It is now late… I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open while I’m writing this. Have a good night!

  1. I was just going to ask if you had tried water running. I have read some great reviews and was thinking about getting a belt to try out at our lake this summer. I know the feeling of being injured and just feeling like those other workouts don’t do the same thing as running. I feel like I could bike for hours and not get near what I get out of a good run. Hang in there. I hope you are feeling like your injury is healing a bit!

    • Thanks Sarah… Water running was actually a lot of fun. It still didn’t feel the same as running but it was a great workout and the closest thing to running. 🙂 I do feel like my foot is getting better but who knows how long it will take to get back onto my running schedule. Thanks for the pick me ups!!!
