AM.  TM walk 1/2 mile.  Glute exercises.  10 mile bike.  I had to wait for the sun to come up because my bike light did not work.  I need to get a new one I guess.

I went to the PT today. She did needling and some more deep massage and scraping. Afterwards she had me run on the TM for a bit and I ran pain free for the first time in a long time. Hopefully it continues.

2 mile run on TM. I did a lot of it very slow but I did open it up and run hard for a quarter mile. No pain!!!  It was a bit sore by the end though so I walked a bit and will see how it's doing Monday. I'm excited to hopefully be running again.

3 easy miles run outside!  First real run in a few months.  My leg issue behind my knee didn't really bother me, but my hammy on that same leg was really tight, probably has something to do with my other problem.  Anyways, I ran!

Did my PT exercises while wathch football tonight.

I tried to run this morning, but my right calf wasn't quite right, so I did my PT and core exercises and called it a morning.

PT exercises. 10 minutes stationary bike. 2 mile TM walk at steep incline. 
I bought a couple pairs of new shoes at Runners Corner today! Hopefully I'll be using them soon if I can ever get my legs to cooperate.
