This wrist recovery is going slow at least for me. I have been running, completing 44 miles this past week. Running outside gets painful after a few miles. My wrist tends to cramp up. I usually walk fast with Luke for about a mile and a half then take Zoey for 3 to 5 miles. When I get home, I hop on the treadmill and finish my run with a brace on the wrist.
Big news this week: new treadmill! Awesome! T50XER by Matrix. Love it. I’ve resolved to do speed work on the mill and only if the roads are absolutely clear will I venture out for a run.
As for weight work, doing a lot with my legs obviously. I can finally pick up a 3 lb weight. I know! Piddling little light weight but that’s all I can do for now. So a lot of various squats, balancing, back work. I’m feeling good and feel like I’ve maintained muscle tone and 3/4 of my endurance. Healthy eating has been prioritized and I’ve actually lost a lb or two.
The week coming up will be my first speed work out (only 1 session) and easy or aerobic runs. My long run endeavor will be 14 miles. Last week I ran 12.92, if I include my prerun walk, a total of 14 plus. I hope next weekend my run will be 14 plus at least 2 walking miles.
A recipe for health and fulfillment.
