30 minutes deep water running.

Wow the Netherlands played a great match in their upset of Brasil!

Go Spain!

PM-  30 more minutes deep water running, but without the float belt.  When I would get too tired I would do a lap of breast stroke to recover and then back to running.

first 30 minutes with belt, second 30 minutes without belt.  

Boy do you have to work harder without the belt.

 

Golfed 18 holes with Chase in the afternoon.  

It's been a good Saturday.

30 minutes deep water running

Today was my first day in a couple months that I have had zero pain in my leg!!!!!!

It is usually the worst when I first get out of bed in the morning,  but this morning I got up and took those first few steps expecting the normal pain, but it wasn't there.  I must be starting to heal.  I still a long time until I can try it running, but at least I'm seeing improvements.

35 minutes upright stationary bike.  No pain with cycling even pushing up to the highest resistance.  This morning there was a very slight twinge of pain in the leg though.  I guess I pushed a little too hard, no big set back though.  It feels fine now.  I'll keep the resistance level at a more normal level for the next while.

Still slight twinge in the leg this morning.  Hopefully just the leg getting used to some mild weight bearing activity.

1 Hour on the rower.  That's the longest I've ever worked that machine before.  I don't know if I'll do that again any time soon.  It's a bit tedious, but it puts minimal stress on my leg.

Upper body weights-- I figure if I can't run, I might as well look good.  I've definitely put on a few pounds of upper body muscle.

Abs and Core

Worked my hip abductors and adductors.  I figured those lower body weights don't put any stress on the tibia.

Six weeks since my last run.  The leg feels good, but I still get little hints of soreness which are a little stronger if I push on it with my fingers.  I try really hard not to press on it, but occasionally I can't resist pushing on it to see how it's feeling.

I was planning on getting up early Tuesday morning (today) for a good long cycling session, but when the time came this morning, I decided to sleep in.  Doone and the kids are coming home today, and I figured it might be my last time to sleep in for a while.  I'm sure another rest day will be good for my leg anyways.

1 hour upright stationary bike.  I pounded it hard the full hour. I kept my HR between 160 and 170 which is tough to do on the bike.  I wanted to give my leg a good test.  It did not hurt at all, but as I've come to find out, the true test is how it will feel tomorrow morning.

I was a bit apprehensive about getting out of bed this morning, wondering if yesterday's hard cycling was going to cause some pain in my tibia, but I was excited when I finally got out of bed and still had no pain, so I got ready and headed to the gym for some weight training.

Full body weights including some light seated calf raises.  Boy have my calves gotten weaker as I have not done any exercises that work the calves for the last 2 months.

Abs and Core.

Tomorrow I'll do another intense bike ride, and if all is still pain free, I'll try out the elliptical next week some time.

1 hour stationary upright bike

I rode even harder today than I did Thursday.  10 mins at 12, 10 mins at 14, 10 mins at 16, 4 mins at 18, 1 min at 20, 10 mins at 16, 10 mins at 14, and 5 mins at 12.

After the first 20 mins, my HR stayed around 170 maxing at 175.  If my leg still feels good tomorrow morning after how hard I pushed today, I will do the happy dance.  And my prediction is, I'll be dancing.

20 minutes upright stationary bike

20 minutes elliptical

20 minutes recumbant stationary bike

That was my first elliptical work in a couple months.  The tibia felt perfectlly fine.  I decided to only do 20 minutes so I wouldn't overdo it.  If it feels fine tomorrow morning, I'ii do a longer elliptical workout on Thursday.

I was going to do a full hour elliptical, but my right knee started to hurt so I switched over to the bike and it felt fine.  When I was doing a lot of deep water running I got a little tendonitis in my knee.  I think that is all that was about.  My tibia feels great.  I really want to try it out on an easy run.  Maybe when we are at the beach this weekend I'll do a really short run in the soft sand and see how it goes.
