But I know that if I go too hard, it will hurt again.
I've been testing my speed threshold and it appears to be a 9 minute mile
Which is a good thing.
Last week, I ran between 9:30-10:00 miles. Slowly, but surely.
I can run on 6.8 mph for quarter mile intervals, but not for a mile straight.
I'm still doing foot strengthening and calf strengthening exercises.
I am happy that things appear to be getting better.
I stopped using KTape and switched to wrapping with an ACE bandage when I needed extra support around my wrist when I was at home. Avoiding anything heavy has really helped me heal. I cut the toes off of a pair of socks to wear as elbow sleeves under my jacket when I run. It adds support and warmth around my elbows.
First, I tried wearing my compression socks on my arms when I slept. It made it really hard to open a bottle of water in the middle of the night. I may have spilled all over myself.
I didn't want to buy sleeves at the store until I knew if they worked or not. So, my wrist and elbows are getting better too. I am trying to be patient. I'm hopeful that I will be able to lift arms again by the end of next week. I'll start off with 5 lbs. and work my way back up to my normal, or old normal.
Can you believe it's October already.
Time to get out the fall décor.
I think I have like 3 things. I love the leaves and the crisp air. It actually got chilly last night.
Hot chocolate weather.
I told my husband that I brushed my teeth with hot water. He thought that was weird.
After almost 15 years of marriage, I am sure that I do something else that is weirder than that.
Do you brush with hot or cold water?
Are you gearing up for any fall races?
