Yahoo - the foot is feeling great today! I think I'm walking pretty much normal now and I can put full weight on the left foot. Went to PT this morning to do the usual routine (US, E-stem, marbles, massage, ice) and talked with Von about whether I should try anything beyond the bike. He suggested we wait 1 more week then try some upbeat treadmill walking next week. Sounds good to me. I surely don't want to be too aggresive and re-tear and be back to square 1.

46 minutes on the exercise bike. Felt good. Playlist include Cake, AC/DC, Van Halen, Billy Squier and this fine little running ditty from Tom Petty.

47 minutes on the bike. Still feeling good. Mostly newer, post-80's tunes on the player today. Lots of greasy kids stuff. Green Day, 311, FooFighters, Weezer. This Collective Soul song wins the prizy today for capturing the spirit of the good vibes I had going.

45 minutes on the bike. Crazy busy at work I was lucky to get away at all. Almost kinda hoping for the layoff lately.

47 minutes on the bike. Wide variety of tunes today. Starting to hear the same songs over again so I must have just about covered my whole play list.

Today's workout tune-of-the-day is another fine one-hit-wonder 80's tune by The Vapors. Dale may question why this is on my playlist and I'm really not actually sure how it got there. It's in honor of my son Camron who is currently visiting Japan, and who interestingly enough actually turned Japanese on his mission (in a good way :)).

30 minutes on the bike at the gym in our SG condo complex. Wanted to go longer but that's all I could handle on this type bike. It looked brand new and expensive but it was one of the exercise bikes where you pedal with legs horizonal rather than vertical and it strained my back and quads in a way that I couldn't get into any kind of rhythm. Would much rather have run with Kimi on the bunny trail this morning.

Absolutely beautiful day today in St. George, especially during the morning hours. Haven't been able to bring myself to ride the bike today but I did do a little walking this morning on the river trail, about a mile. Some while Kim and running then the last 1/2 mile or so with Kim as she cooled down. Nice to see that sunshine, don't get any of that on the exercise bike.

Also probably walked another mile or so during the course of the day. Nice to be able to do that now although Von (PT) didn't want me to do much until Monday. Hopefully tomorrow the feet will be forgiving. I feel OK now but my left foot does get tired pretty quick. Not really painful but more just feeling of weakness.

Been enjoying the Ogden race reports. Congrats to everyone who ran, sounds like the conditions were ideal.

Maybe I'll walk over to the clubhouse where Kim and the girls are playing racquetball and watch them as I pedal the exercise bike a little :)
