What have I been up to since then?
Namely, talking so much about running while I transitioned out of the boot that my 20 minute run/walk was a major event anticipated by many.
Sure, I waited an extra week to run, since the boot had screwed up my gait, but I was super-excited for my first run/walk back. Hot pink shoes help.
The title says it all.
Eventually, I even got to go back to the track for some 800s, though still not full speed/effort.
A run over an hour! A real "long run" (sort of).
And even a run back at the scene of the races that I did with a broken foot while in town for work this month. Far more enjoyable when you're healthy.
If that isn't motivation to take rehab exercises and cross training seriously, I don't know what is.
