Bad News

I got the bad news today. I've been hurting for almost two years now. Today I saw the orthopedic surgeon, and it appears that my right posterior tibial tendon is torn. I may need surgery on it, which would mean no weight-bearing for four to six weeks after the surgery. there would be PT for some time after that, and there would be no running for quite a while.

Taking it easy

I'm back up to 3 to 4 miles at a time, now, after having injured just about everything I could injure below the waist. The weather hasn't been too bad, letting me get out as often as I want to.

In the last few days, I've started running in shorts and a long sleeved t-shirt, and had the temperature drop while I was out, enough for it to snow. You know you're in upstate New York when you've worn shorts and a parka within hours of each other.

I couldn't resist

Well, I got out and ran today. I only went about a mile, since I am still recovering from my latest injury. I couldn't stop myself, though -- the temperature was about 62° -- In January! It's usually more like 5° around here this time of year. It was literally a record high temperature for the area. I took it easy through the mile and didn't push it at all. My tendon is feeling OK.
