I headed to the gym this morning and got on the TM.  I started out very slow and things felt good.  I spead it up a little but not much and things still felt good.  I wanted to go faster, but Tena's words, "Don't wory about pace.  When you are trying to get rid of tightness you want slow and steady." kept ringing in my mind.  I never went went faster than a 9 minute mile and stopped after 2 with only mild tightness and no pain.  I went home and massaged with the frozen water bottle.  I've found one spot on my heal that is really notted up.  I was talking to a podiatrist friend of mine yestereday and he said all my pain could be due to scar tissue build up from where the tendos tore and I just need to work that out.  Anyways, I am much more optomistic after todays run even though it was short and slow. 

2 miles 19:00

My kids started school today.  My 5 y.o. son Cade was so excited and cute about heading out for his first day of kindergarten.

When I got up this morning my foot felt differnt.  There was no pain, but it almost felt numb in the area where it feels like I have a knott of scar tissue.  I rolled it pretty good last night with a frozen water bottle.  I decided not to run on it a second day in a row and instead did weight training followed by 30 min eliptical.  Workout felt good.  Foot feels tight, but no pain.

MY BEST RUN IN 4 MONTHS

I still didn't run fast and I still didn't run far, but I had no discomfort this morning on my TM run.  Yea!

2 miles  17:53

I really think that grinding that painful spot with the frozed water bottle is helping.  Maybe breaking up scar tissue or something.

Weight training heavy upper body, light lower body.  Followed by 30 minutes on the Arc Trainer.

Foot is a bit tender today, but not bad.  I am excited to see the podiatrist tomorrow and get my new orthodics.

I little farther and a little faster today! 

3 miles 25:44

I felt no pain until sometime around the end of the second mile when I decided to add a little incline to the TM.  After about 30 seconds of that I quickly adjusted it back to zero incline and no more pain for the rest of the run.

I saw the podiatrist this morning.  He thinks I have some knotted up scar tissue in the spot where I have some discomfort.  It is a different spot from where I had my last cortizone shot, so he gave me another right into that little lump on my heal and told me to keep up the frozen bottle massaging.  I got my new orthotics.  I have to wait until Monday to try and run in them since I got the shot.  They felt pretty good just standing and walking in them though.  I'll try wearing them over the weekend and then Monday morning I'll go for another run.  I can't wait!  It will be almost as exciting as Christmas morning.

I did some elliptical work this morning with my new orthotics to try and break them in before I run in them. They felt good. Then I did some core work. My foot is feeling pretty good today. I sure hope I have a good run on Monday.
