I can run... but I'm going to give it a few more weeks. I should be able to hit the track and stairs by late July and do regular training by Aug. I'm going to schedule a final xray appointment in about 3 weeks. I expect to be cleared to run by then. I did some sprinter school exercises and ran a few steps on my toes. Feels normal.
Today, I did a complete resistance workout. Upper and lower. Squats, squat jumps, resistance bands, upper body, swimming, etc... I'm in terrible shape. I doubt I could break 60 in the 400m right now, even if my life depended on it.
Return to competition!
The TN Senior Olympics is adopting a new schedule. There will be a series of district meets in Sept. ... so, I could conceivably race as early as 9 weeks from now.
My new training shoe: the Saucony Virrata. Extremely light, super flexible and well padded. Just 6 oz. Thanks Dad! Believe it or not, this is about the 'least weird' color scheme they offered.
