Back to it?

Trail head

Post run cool down

First "real" run in 5 years.
Indian Spring trail, 2.2 miles, a third stone, a third mud, a sixth sand, a sixth miss. 30 min, half walk, half run, whole time lungs hurt.  However, I did stop wheezing in the last half mile.

Kikkin' the Cane Down the Road

Well, not quite yet. I'm still using the cane to re-train my leg and back muscles to walk straight.  I easilly fall into the old habits and hobble around if I don't pay attention. Plus, when I tire, which is often, the cane helps.
Here's a picture, three weeks out.

Cane and Un-Able

I bought my first cane yesterday.  Boy, that was a thrill!  My last run was march of 2013.  I hobbled around the block at a fast walk pace.  The pain in my hip told me to stop.  I still have the old hip, but now have a new cane.  It's a long way I've traveled from the Fools 50k in 2012 to crippledom.

Ah well, here's a backyard pic.

Get Dirty

It might be a little hard to tell from this picture, but we are all filthy! Me more than Ziggy Pup, Pepper more than me.  We are puppy-sitting the Zigster, so we went for a run.  Completed the 2.75 mile Horseshoe Lake trail at a 15.9 min/mile pace.  Phew! There was a lot of sliding on the half mud, half ice trail.  Ziggy was a handful on the leash.  The ice was unstable part of the time and I was breaking through.  This made the going a little more slow.  It's a little abrasive on bare feet (for me), but the dogs didn't seem to mind.  I really didn't either.  I took advantage of a rare 60 degree January day.

A Dogs Pace

I mostly run with Pepper.  I follow her pace.  She pushes me once in a while.  I rest during a sniff, often. We seem to work together well.  I'm glad for her company.  She is always willing and happy.  We smile at each other.

Winter Running

Running in winter but thinking about summer on the beach.  I think I'll try this yoga pose.

I have run the same 3.7 mile rout all this week and I'm getting faster.  Running longer however is still a question.  We do what we can, eh?
