Wednesday I had to take a day off of work for my MRI on my miraculously/cortisone fixed foot. I'd been feeling pretty good for a week so after dropping off the kids I decided to go for a run.
It was pretty cold, around 23 degrees, gray sky, and windy. Sounds like a pretty nice day in Ohio in January. I set out on one of my normal routes through the neighborhood. I wish I could say it was exciting but it wasn't. Other than my legs froze even though I had running pants on- definitely need to find another pair of fleece lined tights! I use the map my run app on my iphone so I knew where my miles were but I had to guesitmate the .1 mile. I'm going to say it was 25:44. I'll take it! I haven't run seriously in 14 weeks now since my heel problems.
I hoping this means I'm on the comeback trail. I swear by spinning now as an awesome cross training activity. I've been doing it 3-4 times a week for about 12 weeks and I feel cardio-wise I'm where I should be plus my legs feel strong. I powered up hills like nothing! I will be definitely be keeping spinning in my training!
