Wellness Wednesday...Ep. 8

Welcome to recovery week!  Before I get to talking about my recovery week plans...let's revisit last week: 
  • Wednesday: Rest Rest
  • Thursday: Rest Rest
  • Friday: Rest Rest
  • Saturday: 13.1 miles Half marathon! (recap here)
  • Sunday: Yoga for Runners Rest
  • Monday: Rest Rest
  • Tuesday: Yoga for Runners

  • Well...I have a bit of good news.  Made it to the doctor on Monday and had x-rays done of my foot and ankle...and no stress fracture!  He thinks the normal routine of Rest, Ice, Elevation...the usual...will help.  I also got some stuff for my zombie toe.  So it looks like (hopefully) when this recovery week is over, I should be able to resume some running!  Now...on to what the rest of this recovery week will look like (hopefully):
    • Wednesday: Rest
    • Thursday: 30 mins bike
    • Friday: 20 min walk
    • Saturday: 30 mins bike
    • Sunday: 2-3 mile run
    • Monday: Rest
    • Tuesday: 2-3 mile run

    I'm really trying to decide what direction to move in next...as my next half isn't until November...so I want to work on shorter distances and really work on incorporating a mix of cross training.  I figure I won't make any real plans until after I can actually start running again...so hopefully Sunday!
