I finally feel like I might be making some progress!
I have successfully jogged/walked four miles twice without any pain during or after! I am not a huge fan of the treadmill but I lately the treadmill has been good to me and I might be having a change of heart.
dreadmill treadmill for not showing you the love!
I was given the go-ahead by my PT to try a jog/walk combo on the treadmill. I am doing two minutes of walking at 3.8-4.0 and then a jog for two minutes at 5.0. I have been playing around with the time to see if I can handle a little more and I am now able to do two minutes
of walking and five minutes of jogging without
any pain during or after. I don’t break much of a sweat so
I hop on the elliptical for 15 minutes after my 45-minute treadmill workout and pick up the pace!
I am finally learning to be more patient and accept this whole recovery process. I know that I have to start slowly and work myself back to where I was. This is the hard part because I have so many races that I want to run and so many goals that I want to tackle. I just keep telling myself...
"Be patient. You will get there. Slowly but surely you will get there."
This post guest from BQ by 40 about a runners journey to qualify for Boston also gave me some inspiration today. Check it out!
