My foot's still not ready for even a mile.

First day to really try and run. My foot/toe is still not 100%...it's more like 60%. Lots of pressure on the center/ball of my foot but not a sharp pain as before. I went to the gym and ran 4 miles on the TM at an easy 11-12 min. pace with a short .10 mile pick-up to a 7:30 pace on each mile. I did not run the 4 miles continuous but too a short break and did 3 reps of upper body weights inbetween each mile. Now, after the run, my foot feel no better or worse so I think that is a good sign.

On anoter note, I went and bought a new road bike on saturday. My wife wasn't very excited about that but I think she realizes my pain in not being able to do anything (running or cycling). I've promised to be very careful and take the cycling down a notch or two to try and avoid any more accidents.

I didn't think I could do it but I actually gained about 15 pounds during this time off. Several pounds were put on during my cruise vacation a week ago. Four months ago I was about 156 lbs. I weight in at 172 lbs after the cruise. Now I am back down to 164 after a week of light eating.

Here's one picture from our trip. :-)

Rode my new bike this morning 13.5 miles. I found rode this new loop which is pretty hilly. May be a good running route when I get back to where I can run some distance.

My foot feel fine after running the 4 miles yesterday on the TM. No more/no less pain. Hoplfully this is the new beginning and I'll be ready for a half marathon in October!
