I was excited to get up and run this morning.  I've been walking 100% pain free and doing the eliptical pain free as well so I decided I was ready.  I headed over to a park with a big grass field that I could run around and started to run.  I took it easy, but was suprised at the amound of pain I had right from the start.  It wasn't anything like the sharp tearing pain I had during Boston, but it was much more than I anticipated.  I almost stopped right then, but decided to try and run just a bit more.  I ended up running 2 miles on grass and the pain came down some by the end, but I figured I shouldn't push it any more.  I then headed over to the gym and did 30 min eliptical, pain free.

2 miles  AP 7:24

I guess I'll wait and see how my foot responds for the rest of the day and tomorrow.  It's definitely not healed enough for any hard running.

I finally have that feeling I usually get after a good run.  I did my water running this morning a little differently to get there.  I did it without the belt.  To stay afloat you have to run pretty hard.  I could only do it for 1 minute at a time.  So I ran all out for 1 min. then held onto the side and did some easy kicking for a minute and then repeated 15 times for a full 30 min workout.  I got my HR up around 165.  About 140 was my max with the belt and usually I was around 120.  Anyways, it feels good to have that post workout burn feeling again.

Slept in this morning so I missed spin class.

I snuck out of work at lunch and got in a full body weights workout. I did some really like to raises to test out the PF tendon. It felt good. No pain. Maybe I can gradually work that up to stregthen it.

I'm taking my 3 boys camping tonight (fathers and sons campout.) I hate seeping on the ground in a tent, but the boys love it. Wish me luck.
