Long Time, No Write

I took a few weeks off blogging, which I realized I missed more than I would have thought! Working 2 jobs caught up to me, and I seem to barely be able to keep awake these days. (Literally, I feel like I let my body get too run down and my Epstein Barr is trying to make a return:) So I took a little time off for some well needed rest as well as a little vacationing in places that didn't include internet access.

Not sure if it helped much, but for a while if I am not working, I will just be sleeping to get over this again and feel like myself!

But I am back to blogging now and plan to continue to keep up my blog regularly again. I do have some really good news to share. My injury is really on the mend (for real this time, I think:).

I have been working on a daily physical therapy program, one that I designed myself based off of what I have learned from doctors, and tips from other runners and specialists. Each day for a couple of months now I have increased the PT and pushed my ankle/foot more and more at a slow and steady gradual pace. I still have a bit more to go, but the injuries are showing dramatic signs of improvement. I am now running a couple of miles a day without trouble. I have even been able to go hiking several times (carefully). The other day, I even did a little mountain climbing only about 50 feet which a month ago would have made me feel like my ankle was getting torn apart.

Oddly the only thing I cannot really do without pain is swim. I know funny, but you don't realize how much your foot and ankle move in the water as you kick:) But thankfully, the therapy is working and each day I feel better and better and I no longer feel constant pain when working out and walking on the injured foot. YAY!!!! Even better, I believe in about one more week I can start slowly building up the mileage again and getting back in shape and maybe in a few months I can start building back up into marathons again. Pretty excited about this!!!

I still have to take it easy, but since this injury has pained me for 7 months now, I am just super thrilled that I may be able to heal on my own and avoid any surgery!!!

Well that is my good news, and I look forward to being back with you all in my blogging world again! Happy Monday All!!!
