It's been nearly 3 months now since running went on the back burner due to my foot, oh hell, what am I saying it completely fell off the stove.
Anyway, I got my orthotics 2 days ago and I am back on nights, so we shall see how it goes. The doctor said to break them in slow and apparently his definition and mine are different. I thought I would wear them at work every other day, but nope he recomends starting with 30 minutes and working my way up to a few hours! At that rate, I wont be running until 2013, sheesh!! I am gonna play it by ear, errr, I mean foot and see how it goes. No races planned, but hopefully by fall I will have at least a half marathon on deck.
Less than a week until Hawaii and I am so looking forward to the sun and sand. I need a little re-juvenation after my intermittent bouts of UPTO. I have never been sick like this (cold in Nov, pink eye in January and now the stomach flu). My personal goal was for work on my individual development plan was to become healthier and of course with any goal it must be measureable so decreased sick days and weight loss is the way I am going.
In the meantime, I am gonna keep counting the days until me and A-train leave this thankfully mild winter behind for a bit and keep breaking these orthotics in.
