I ran 2 miles out on the road to just test things out before I went to the PT to get scraped and everything felt good... I will hopefully get the green light to build back up slowly and start getting after it again. I did the stair-climber for 10 minutes and then Darin did the scraping thing, after that I came home and did 23 minutes on the elliptical to finish up. These next two days are going to be hell! I'll explain later but its hard seeing your kids go through hell and have no control over it, I love them so much and I am praying for Heavenly father to be with them at this very difficult time.

See ya Later.

I went to the doctor today and he wants me to up my mileage to 3 miles every other day so we can check my progress, if things go bad again then he will have to start checking for compartment syndrome. So after the appointment I ran my 3 miles, 8:36 average with my HR at 151, after the run I stretched and then I did my upper body weigh training. Tomorrow I will cross-train, as ordered by the doctor, and then I'll run before my PT appointment and then I will be scraped again, the doctor wants me to have a couple more treatments.

As I said earlier in the week we had a family tragedy over spring break, my ex-wife the mother of my two kids passed away unexpectedly. It was the hardest thing that I ever had to witness!!! Watching Abby and Ethan go through hell and back again was almost more than I could bare! Even though they have both lived with me and they only saw her on special occasions and via the phone it was still heart breaking! I know we have the eternal perspective and that is a true blessing but it was so very difficult! I have been charged with handling a portion of her estate, which there is little, but her parents wanted me to be involved so I am trying to do that to the best of my ability... We had her funeral yesterday and so now the healing process has started and I hope I can do my best to help my kids through that part of it, heart Breaking!  I hope she is finally at peace and may God hold her close until we meet again, take care Allison.

See ya tomorrow.

I did 50 minutes on the elliptical and then I did some strength training on my legs, my leg was a little sore but not to bad. I had resistance on the elliptical up to 5 and the rpm average was 90 and above. PT tomorrow and hopefully some more running.

Later.

I ran 3.10 miles before the PT appointment, my leg felt okay a little achy after the run...  It felt better after the PT scraped it,  I then did some stretching and then the PT had me run another 1.14 miles before I left, so a total of 4.24, my average was 8:40 for all 4 miles. My leg really felt good that last mile I guess scraping is a wonderful thing, at least after its over its a wonderful thing. The PT said I can run  a few tomorrow if its feeling good so I might try some running in the morning.

See ya tomorrow.
