I've been testing the foot, running in place on mats. It feels ok but is sore a little afterward. My mother who had this injury said that it will continue to hurt a bit after it's healed. I am also doing some calf raises in preparation for running. Next Xrays are in 9 days, 6+ weeks since my last set. This Friday will be the 16th week and I'm hopeful. I expect I'll be running grass and stadium stairs in a few weeks.
150m jog, dynamic stretches, drills
3 x 15 single leg box jumps
2 x 15 squats with 40lbs
2 x 50 single leg calf raisesThe title of this blog... Sprint Forever may be wishful thinking. Don't know if I will be able to sprint forever. This time off has made my body less suited to the sport, even though I am a decent weight - about 145-6. I need to ramp up on the resistance bands or I'll get injured if I try to run fast too soon.
I do miss the track and am sad to have missed the college season. If I do compete again, June will be like Nov or Dec... and not even that fit. I have no plans to go to the Nationals in KS, unless I surprise myself and start running fast again. I think about last year at this time, running meets every weekend for 6 weeks. Yesterday was the Boston Moon Classic at TSU... the same meet last year where I beat all the Sewanee guys in my heat and was consistently running in the 55's. Seems like a lifetime ago.
I looked at the results this year... I would have beat a few guys again. I also think of my former teammates from Phily getting ready for Penn. What an adventure that was.
Maybe I'll eventually get back.
