Day two of little to no pain in the surgical site. Yay!  Ran/walked 5 miles on the treadmill - working up to speeds of 5.5 mph.  Lower body workout following. Now icing.

Had a half day off and the foot was feeling pretty good - so I walked 6 miles to start increasing my mileage one day a week at midweek. It was nice to be outside.

I definitely think I have turned the corner on the foot recovery.

Down 12.5 pounds from my starting weight in late December. Long way to go on that too.

Good progress this week in upping my mileage without pushing the foot too far.

Four days in a row without too much pain - of course, there is more after the running occurs each day.

Started out ominously because I drank a smoothie for breakfast and it all immediately came back out of me. Good thing the garbage disposal was on. My daughter and I skyped and she said it might be my stomach didn't have enough food when my vitamins hit. Tried another smoothie and it stayed down.

Ran 8 miles using the run 2 min/walk 1 min method. Nice and slow - but could feel the endurance coming back. I've been listening to a book called Finding Ultra and it is great to run to. Reversed my order at the end and did another 1+ mile with the dog as a cooldown running 1 min and walking 2 min. Started to feel the foot the last 1/4 mile or so, so I'm glad I refrained from the urge to push double digits.

DId a medium and a long run this week and it feels like progress is coming along. Now to increase slowly and work on speed.

Foot was a little painful this morning - so did 30 minutes hard on the recumbent bike followed by 30 minutes hard on the arc trainer.  Giving myself 4 miles. Did an early morning workout since I am donating blood this afternoon.

11.5 miles on the Elliptigo. I'm in bad shape and counting it as 6 miles based on the time and effort it took.

12 miles running/walking on the treadmill followed by 45 minutes on the recumbent bicycle. At the point my foot started burning a lot, I called it a day.
