Dynamic stretchs, 50m flat footed jog
Concept 2 rower
3 x 2000m - 8:10, 8:26, 8:35 - 33/spm
upper body weightsI enjoyed rowing today while the women polevaulters worked out right in front of me. They seem to need a coach. The akle brace offer significant support to my foot and I can run up short flights of stairs with no problem. I think this brace takes pressure off the broken bones and pushes the bones together. It's just too uncomfortsble to sleep in, but I wear it all the time. What I think will irritate my foot is impact and twisting. Stairs have neither. I did a hobbled test jog today and it felt fine.
On the other hand... was just looking at some bad experiences with this injury on a Runners World blog. Some say they've had success with a home untrasound bone stimulator machine: Exogen 4000
I wonder if I can start to run on grass as this injury heals? It seems like it will heal no matter what if given enough time. At this rate, I should be able to run fast by April. Next xray - 3 weeks.
I missed the track so much I went and visited it today.
