I guess it's been a while since I last blogged. What has happened.....let's see:
On Thursday morning I did my second run...boy, it's great to be running again. My big toe and that side of the foot and ankle are a little sore but getting less so (I think) as the days pass. It only hurts when I speed up to 3mph or faster...actually gets less when I start running...must be a tight ligament/tendon/muscle thing. Still working on my ankle and foot strength.
Also on Thursday I was greeted by a broken fridge/freezer. Not fun. We really couldn't do anything about it as we were leaving to drive to Southern California for my husband's grandma's funeral. She was 95 so it wasn't entirely unexpected but still very sad. We did get to see my sister on our drive back up to San Jose on Saturday morning.
Sunday we planned to go out for a run but it was 28 degrees so we did separate runs on the treadmill. Still keeping it short for me. Total with a little hike at the end of 2 miles.
Monday I decided I'd start P90X so I did chest & back and ab ripper. Yikes!! I don't have a pull-up bar (yet) so I used the band draped over the door. It worked okay but I'll be happy when my bar comes...not that I expect to actually be able to do a pull up (yet).
I am not doing the cardio that comes with P90X. I will just do my runs 3 days a week and if I want to double up on some days, I'll just do elliptical or bike.
My husband was able to take out the circuit board on the fridge and replace the blown fuse yesterday. So far, the fridge is working so I bought some new food today. It was very sad dumping out all the contents into yesterday's trash. It's only 2.5 years old...thanks, LG.
