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!

4 miles on the gym TM @ 11 Min. Pace (.2 miles @ 7:30 Pace each mile). Upper Body wieghts before and inbetween miles.

I just realized that I bought and rode my new road bike Tuesday which was one year, to the day, that I had my accident last year. Didn't plan it that way it just happened.

Oh...forgot to post this. I've finally gotten back to some roping competition since the wreck, the foot operation and having my #1 competition horse die. I'm now riding a horse I've had in training for a few years but never felt comfortable competing on him. This is a small step but hopefully one in the right direction. I went to a small competion on Thursday night and won a little money and this trophy buckle.
