Now you’re, walking around in your circles.
Walking around in your circles, yeah.
Walking around in your circles, circles.
Walking around in your circles.

Rehab runs #3 & #4 are in the books, and they were very successful! I took to the track to get rid of the steady pace security of the treadmill and to try a different surface with my foot. For run #3 I ran counter-clockwise and today I ran clockwise, just to see if it would be irritated in a different direction. Both runs were pain free, which I am super stoked about! The only pain I had was a slight pain in my inner ankle when I picked up the pace for the last minute of today’s run, but nothing major. I just really wanted to see what I could do and what sort of progress I am making.
I also played slo-pitch last Friday for the first time in over a month. I ran the bases once and felt ok (probably ran a bit too fast, but it’s hard to run slow after you’ve hit the ball and need to get to first base!). The inside and outside of my arch was a bit sore after two games, likely from planting my foot repeatedly while pitching. Stretching and strengthening exercises continue every day.
I’m really excited about this progress. I have another physio appointment tomorrow so we will see what’s next. I hope to do a road run soon, and I have at least six games of slo-pitch this weekend.
Rehab Run #3
6 minute walking warm up, 3 minutes running with 1 minute walking (x6), 6 minute walking cool down.
Rehab Run #4
6 minute walking warm up, 4 minutes running with 1 minute walking (x5), 6 minute walking cool down.
Progress is a wonderful thing!
