My birthday was almost a week ago and I am 29 now! I got my boot off for my birthday so I have been exercising more and I'm happy to be free.
I did 18,129 step yesterday and I completed my FIRST real jog/run since breaking my ankles in May.
I need to work on my endurance again but It felt good to have the wind passing me by. I took my two doggies with me and the puppy did OK. She has a lot of energy to burn but it mostly comes in short spurts of energy.
I'm planning to run 3-4 days a week for now and walk on the other days. I planned to join my job/college's gym because it's only 8 dollars a week! So, I will do that on August 1 and alternate the elliptical/arc trainer on my non running days.
I'm hoping my new found freedom (from my braces and boots) will allow me to be active again. Not that I ever stopped begin active. But, I love the endorphin rush and I'm SO happy to be able to move (cautiously) again.
