Well I went out with my little running club this afternoon, (Salem Running Club) and we ran out towards Payson, my calf and shin started hurting right off the bat so I ran with the kids for a mile and an half and then on the way back they picked it up. I was really feeling bad with my calf and shin cuz I thought I was getting better but that doesn't seem to be the case, so I kept it pretty easy on the way back and just tried to stay positive... Average pace for the run was 8:39 with my HR average at 146, total time was 26:50. After the run I decided to try the elliptical and I was able to do 35 minutes pretty much pain free, in fact the longer I went the better my leg felt, I was able to keep the RPM above 95 and I also had it clipping above 110 a few times.  I really can't figure this darn thing out. Maybe I have tendenitis in there and I just had to get it warmed up, or maybe it was the 800 mill that I took just before I got on there! All I know is it feels pretty good right now so I will see how it feels in the morning. After the run and the Elliptical I did my Upper body workout and then some push-ups, after a bad start I finished it up for a good workout and a positive conclusion.

See ya tomorrow.

Well, things are not looking to good for me right now I could only run about a half a mile and then I was limping. Not good! At this point I am very frustrated and pretty down because it looks like running is out of the question at least at this point... For some reason I can do the elliptical and it doesn't seem to bother the leg at all but running is another story! I could only stand about 30 minutes on the darn thing and that was all I had mentally, and I think some of that was the fact that I will be on the running sideline again for awhile longer. I just can't catch a break! Very, very Frustrating! I am able to do some weight baring excersizes which probably rules out a stress fracture, but I am concerned that it maybe compartment syndrom, how ever you spell it! That would not be a good thing either! I can't stand doctors so I don't know what to do to get this thing figured out!

Later.

So I was able to get into this sports doc that my PT hooked me up with and he worked me over pretty good. He had me run just over three miles and he wanted pain to be flaring so he good get a handle on what is going on. He ruled out Compartment syndrome for now simple cuz my pain is to isolated. He took an ex-ray for a stress fracture and couldn't see anything but he wants to do a bone scan if the problem persists,  so he thinks I have a tendon that is torn along the bone and I have a torn muscle in the same area and so he had my PT do some A-Stym and some deep tissue message and he wants this to continue for two more weeks. If the pain persists then I will have to have a bone scan. In the mean time he wants me to continue with the elliptical or swimming or biking, no running for now. I can do the elliptical if I just change my mental outlook and I can continue with the strength training, so that is the plan. I ran 3.15 miles and then I had time for some more on the elliptical for 30 minutes with some resistance thrown in there too, I finished up with my upper body weight training and then some push-ups. So for the next 2 weeks it's me and Mr. Elliptical, its should be beautiful experience! 

See ya tomorrow.

I hit the elliptical after my sons soccer game, I did a 20 minute warm-up and then I did the contenders course up to a 5 resistance total time with that was 20 minutes and then I just kept on going for another 15 minutes. My calf and shin were a little sore but they held up pretty good, there pretty sore from all the scraping yesterday at the PT. After that I did my lower body weight training and then I called it a day, the time flew by on the elliptical as I watched the Masters, it made the elliptical a lot more tolerable.  Another PT appointment tomorrow for some more scraping, it should be fun. NOT!

See ya tomorrow.

I went to the PT at 2:45 this afternoon and I did 10 minutes on the stair climber, which kicked my butt, and then the scraping began and that was so special!  I then came home and did a 10 minute warm-up on the elliptical and then I did the backwoods course which has resistance up to 7 for 30 minutes and then I cooled down for another 10 minutes, so between the 3 little buggers I had 60 minutes total. After the elliptical I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I will take Saturday and Sunday off as per the PT's instructions and then there will be more scraping on Monday before I head out of town. I am pretty proud of my self this week, I stayed positive and worked hard and got her done and I hope this remedy will get back out on the road soon.

See ya Monday.
