I had dreams last night that I was running. Running on the sidewalks, trails and treadmills. Running in my bare feet, flip flops, running shoes and boots. Running. And then running some more. I was exhausted after all the running, but also exhilirated and excited.
And then I woke up. And I was sad. It’s been more than a month since I’ve run on solid ground. But I know this rehab time is important. I’ve been deep water running in the pool, riding the bike, strength training and doing my foot exercises. But there is nothing like a good run.
Tomorrow is the day that I can try out this foot on a run. Take it easy on the treadmill – 2 minutes running, 1 minute walking. I’m going to try for 20 minutes pain free.
Wish me luck…
