Walked 1 mile on the TM (whopping pace of 17 min) then 45 minutes on the bike. No tunes today so it was tough battling the boredom factor. No pains in the left foot while doing stuff other than a pain on the non-injured outside edge which I'm sure is a just a side effect of walking too much on the outside of my foot over the last 5 weeks as I've babied the injured area.

I'll stick with the walking/biking routine this week then mid-next-week Von is going to have me try some pool running.

Trying to decide if I should count walking miles or not? I haven't bothered with trying to figure out biking equivalent miles and logging anything besides the big goose egg since the injury.

About the same as yesterday. But also tried a minute each at the end on stair machine and elliptical just to see how it compared to last time I tried a couple of weeks ago. Much much better. No pain at all where 2 weeks ago I new immediately it wouldn't work. 

I think I'll slowly start adding in the stair/elliptical minutes and back off the bike and get to where I getting around 80 minutes total workout with 20 minutes each on bike, stairs, elliptical and walking. I've promised myself that I won't attempt any running (besides pool) until after our cruise at the beginning of June.

I think I'm starting to see the light at the end....

Went for a 20-min walk outside with Kim. Weather was unsettled but it was nice to be outside and nice to have Kim with me.

Had a great time with my daughters on our daddy-daughter overnighter last night. Went with John and Nate (3 daughters each) up to Nate's parents ranch up in Elkridge. Girls had a ball riding horses and 4-wheelers.  Probably ate a bit too much but what the heck.
