"A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life." Muhammad Ali
Being 51 definitely has its advantages...like knowing that life happens, yet things usually work out somehow. But, these days, I've been really tired...I went to bed at 9pm last night and got up at 8am this morning, that's 11 hours. Yes, I've been relatively busy, but nothing I usually can't handle. That's the other side of being 51...hormones get a little wacky. Naps are a must...but, so is exercise :)
I saw Joseph, my PT, again yesterday and he gave my foot a good "painful massage" and then had me run at my regular speed on the treadmill. I was allowed to do 10 X 1 min. walk/1 min. run...and it went great! Wootwoot! I was back out there today and did 11 x 1/1 intervals...and by the time I see Joseph again on Friday, I am to have completed 15 X 1/1 intervals...and then "we'll see" he said, after I asked him if he thought I could at least do the 10K in Niagara Falls in 3 weeks. So, "we'll see"...but, today was a success. The pain is minimal and according to Joseph, it's always better to keep the muscles working...I like his method.
So, after my 22 minutes of "run/walking", I went for a 10K bike ride and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine...lovely morning, now time to get ready for work.
Congrats to everyone who raced over the weekend!
