Well, here I am in week 5 of injury recovery from a femoral (femur) stress fracture, and thought I would share some more random thoughts….
- As much as I despise doing the stationary bike, elliptical machine, and aqua jogging, it has been a whole lot better since I was released to do the elliptical. All of them are still monotonous, but being able to alternate between three, instead of two, has been much better.
- I’ve mentioned before that since my injury I’ve been reading novels like crazy. Well I had completed one in the entire year leading up to the stress fracture, and am now about to finish number 10 since then (5 1/2 weeks).
- I’m sorry that I’ve not commented more on the posts of others during the injury. Reading about running has been very hard while I’ve been on the bench, but I really do want to read all about everyone’s races this weekend, especially @Davidsgoals who is doing his first marathon in Chicago!!!
Well….good luck to everyone racing over the next few weeks. Hope that you have great weather, and most importantly that you have a GREAT TIME!
- Almost Forgot….I’M BAAAAAAAACK!! Got the clearance from my doctor this morning. Plan to resume the “Quest for Boston” later tonight. Will be a slow process getting back up to my regular mileage, but I can’t wait to hit the road. Thanks to everyone for their support throughout this process. I appreciate it!
