I was released to run some easy miles today. He said elliptical or walk/run for another month or so to see how it goes.

Also did some upper body weights.

Xrays were done on my left foot and it shows that I will have to have surgery on that foot too. I'm going to do that before I tear everything up like I did on my right foot.

2 miles on the Elliptical....still waiting a while to try running. My foot is still sore, no hurry.

Upper body weights.

Probably follow this training for a couple of weeks 2,3,4 days a week.

At least I'm moving!

Trying to get some consistency to working out. Again, 2 Miles on the Elliptical and some upper body weights. One hour of workout total. Elliptical miles are about 9.5-10 min.

Today is the first road run since April 7th. I was going to go to the gym but we are in a vehicle delima right now with one loaned out and one in the shop. That only leaves my truck, so my wife had to take me to work.

3 easy miles out and back. My right foot felt pretty good. It still has a slight soreness but I think it's just the scar tissue. The toe doesn't look noramal as it seems to want to point upward slightly and not provide any pressure or help pushing down on the ground. My left foot continues to have a slight/small pain at the same pressure point as the right foot. (As I mentioned before I will be having surgery on the left foot sometime this year.)

Ran fairly easy but I'm sure I'll still be pretty sore tomorrow. Picked up the pace a little on the last quarter mile. I could probably run a 24 min. 5K right now.
