Headline: Martin runs for 15 minutes with no pain!
Byline: Martin has a revelation about why working out and doing rehab has been so difficult lately... I have been alone! Looking back on these last eleven weeks since my injury I have ridden my bike with anyone else exactly three times and for sure I have never done any of my stair workouts or indoor rehab stuff with anyone. I guess I like the company of my friends.
ASIDE- it's funny (read: interesting) how much of a lift these silly treadmill runs are giving me. So far they not the least bit boring and the time seems to fly. I think I am actually looking forward to doing a few more minutes and am bummed when I need to shut it down. What a huge contrast to when I was running on the treadmill for recovery or extra volume. That was BORING. It's a prime example of the Tom Sawyer Syndrome I think.
It was even nicer out today (by a couple of degrees anyway) than yesterday so I again took the long way home. Beautiful. This time it was a legitimate sleeveless shirt day so of course I obliged.
Today was also my first day doing dynamic hops and jumps for rehab to strengthen my ankle! That's progress for sure.
I had very little time for indoor cardio today so cut the elliptical trainer short so that I could could go as long as I had planned on the treadmill.
It was kind of windy out today and luckily it was blowing from the NW so I was flying along the bike path in Myrtle Edwards Park. Good times. Even on a town bike with platform pedals.
