Sunday Report

I am starting to have a love / hate relationship with the elliptical machine. In an effort to keep up my "mileage", now that I have been cleared to do everything but run, I have been spending a lot of quality time on the elliptical to simulate running.

I am headed to the PT tomorrow morning for another session and I am hopeful that he sees improvement in my leg ... but the real test will come when I get to go for my first test run, hopefully Saturday.

In the mean time, I will be spending a lot more quality time on the elliptical machine. Fun, fun, fun! I will never complain about a long run again ...

Mileage for Week Ending 1/3/2010(!)
Swim: 2200 yards in 1:00 -- toughest, slowest swim I have had in a long time! Serves me right for skipping the pool for 3 weeks.
Bike: 12 miles in 0:45
Run: 0 miles in 0:00
Elliptical: 5:00
Total Active Time: 6:45

Stretching / Foam Roller / Push Ups / Core: 0:50

Nice job on the stretching!! Have you thought about aqua-jogging instead of elliptical?


You've got me beat. I haven't been in water since PC. My plan for St G is to strap a harness on Arnie.

I just have a hate relationship with the elliptical machine which has made my latest running injury a rough one to deal with. Best of luck to you!

Hang in there! I'm a fan of the aqua-jogging too!

Think about just swimming instead of hitting the elliptical if your schedule will allow it. If you are having trouble swimming with your leg, don't kick!
