Tuesday Update

Things have gone very well with my leg.  I have been following all of my doctor's instructions, including the "Walk as much as possible" suggestion.  So, I walked 12 miles on the treadmill on Sunday.  That's right, I said 12 miles.  Walking.  On a treadmill.  To be honest, it wasn't bad at all.  I can hook my laptop up to our television in our workout room, so I streamed Spirit of the Marathon, which I'd already seen, but it had been a few years.  Then, I watched Love and Other Drugs (quite enjoyed it).  Total time to do the walk was about 3 1/2 hours.  Yowza!

My sutures were really bothering me, and Sunday one totally disappeared.  Where did it go?  Who knows.  The only real discomfort I was feeling was itchiness, and annoyance when the sutures would get stuck in the inseam of my pants.

So, today, I had my final follow up with my doctor and I'm delighted to announce that I'm back at 100%.  My sutures were removed, and I'm cleared to run, swim, scuba dive and do whatever I want to.  Hooray!!  To  be honest, I don't even really feel like I've fallen that far behind in my training.  I mean, I walked quite a bit, and even though that's not running, you'd think that I haven't lost any stamina.  Still, I won't go too far this weekend on my run.  I have one more long run before the race in Indianapolis.

Todd has been in Florida since Thursday, and I miss him terribly.  He arrived home today, so I'm excited to spend time with him tonight.  He was helping his parents out around their house and just going for a general little visit.  We spent almost an hour on Skype last night.  Anyway, as a result I'm not going to try out running tonight so that I can devote all of my time tonight to him.

I've got some photos of my leg, but I'll have to post them later because I don't have them right now.  Stay tuned.
