I have read that while the heart and lungs get acclimated to running very quickly, it takes the muscles, tendons and bones over a year to get up to snuff. I went from never running more than 3.1 miles (the distance required in a sprint distance... Read more

Strictly following my doctors orders - I have been working up to running very very slowly over the last 4 months. I can't believe it has been that long. This morning I got up and did about 30 minutes of yoga. Then I changed into shorts... Read more

So for the first time in over 2 months, I was able to run. I started the morning out with 45 minutes of gentle yoga. Then I went into the garage to test out some run/walk intervals on the treadmill. I started with a couple of minutes of wa... Read more

I have been healing from a torn hip tendon for 2 months and 8 days. I haven't kept a countdown or anything during this time. I did not tick off each day of my healing to see how far I had gone. If I had, I may have realized that it was only... Read more

I posted this on one of my threads - and then felt that it would be good to come back to and read again. My doctor told me yesterday that I was neglecting my heart (in the sense of my joy.) And she felt it was delaying the healing of my hip... Read more
Day one of no pain
Wednesday, November 09, 2011      2 comments

The definition of no pain has changed from my prior definition of " the discomfort in my hip isn't bad enough to keep me from running" to "my hip does not hurt" - without qualifiers. My doctor has been very patient while trying to teach me th... Read more

I'm beat! I think our neighborhood is one that people drive to. So many kids!!! I must say that I completely enjoyed myself. There were so many really cute and creative costumes to look at. And the kids are really polite. Got lots of th... Read more

As I child, i was raised a Dallas Cowboy's fan. That was back in the day when nobody new the name of the owner - or maybe just saw him in the owners box when something exciting happened .... but I digress. That was when the coach wore a sui... Read more

I had my second appointment with my new doctor. If possible, I like her even more than I did on Tuesday. For one, I feel a lot better already. That will always do a lot for your popularity! Second - she has already talked to the c... Read more

Quick Pre Doctor Update

I will finally get to see a doctor tomorrow. I guess I should reword that, I could have seen "a" doctor in the past week or two. There are several urgent care offices near my home and most likely a few near my work. I do not currently have a... Read more

I have to admit, I was a little teeny bit happy this morning that I'm not able to run. I left the house this morning around 5 for a 5:45 spin class. It was cold (for Floridians at least) at around 70 with a strong wind and bouts between driz... Read more

Well my attempts at running on Wednesday did not go well at all. I got up early and did about 45 minutes of yoga so that I was well warmed up. At that point I had zero pain and I felt ready to go. But I got about 4 steps into my run and t... Read more
