Where'd you run that at? Was it an organized event? Or just you?

Just me! In an effort to save money I'm not running many races this year...I have my sights on a couple in the fall.

Ha, glad I have at least one beastly lift!

My squats are just a teeny bit below parallel, which is better than I was a few months ago. I've been slacking off on stretching/foam rolling.

Speaking of slacking, I haven't updated this thing in forever. I'm going home to Canada for 2 weeks and I probably won't be around much. Bringing my running shoes with me so I can get in a few workouts.

Sigh. Lobster hasn't been in this house for awhile!

So this summer was kind of crazy busy, didn't have much time to post on here, but I was running pretty regularly aiming for a half marathon Oct. 2nd.

Those that are my friends on Facebook know what happened. Long story short I cut my EHL tendon (the tendon that pulls your big toe up) and had to have it surgically repaired. I had surgery 3 weeks ago. I'm in a cast for 2 more weeks, on crutches and the whole bit. After I get the cast off and the pin in my toe removed I'll have about 4 weeks physical therapy. I was told that best case scenario I might be able to slowly incorporate running back into my life in November. We'll see.

Haven't worked out at all since the surgery. If I keep my foot elevated the pain is pretty minimal. When I start hobbling around on the crutches (gosh I despise those things) it starts to ache. I've been working at home this whole time and I don't leave the house much (we don't have a car, which normally I love, but it kind of sucks when you are on crutches), so I sit around and get depressed and probably have been eating more junk than I should.

Anyway, I have an order of fresh fruits and veggies arriving tomorrow. All stuff I can easily eat raw, as cooking is a giant PAIN right now. I never realized how difficult it is to cook when you can't carry anything! Our kitchen really isn't set up for it.

I don't mean to complain too much. A lot worse things can happen to a person. Trying to keep positive. If nothing else I've gotten good at standing on one leg and my good leg has definitely gotten stronger! Unfortunately my bad leg has atrophied a bit, but it will all come back eventually and this will just be a weird/funny(?) story to tell.

You're over halfway to cast-off time! You're almost there. Your pt might be able to give you ideas about how to work around your recovering foot to train other stuff the way you want. One thing I did that I hated HATED was the arm bike. But it's a means to an end. omg that frickin' arm bike.

Hey, what if we got you one of those things that goes around your neck that the cocktail girls used to sell cigarettes from. You can fill it up with lettuce and kale and stuff and be like a hobbling cornucopia of vegan kitchen goodness.
