So last night I needed to burn some calories. While my foot is mostly feeling better (just feels tight for the most part) – I decided to learn from last years’ repeated attempts at rushing back into running after injury (and getting re-injured.) So, it was an elliptical night. The good point of this, is that I got to finish watching “Season of the Witch” on Netflix. It wasn’t a bad movie, but I certainly have no regrets about missing it in the theater. Definitely not Nicholas Cage’s best movie.
My cheap curb-found elliptical does creak a lot as its used, but it is still much quieter than the treadmill. I did an hour and five minutes on it, and worked up a sweat – but never was out of breath. Due to the short stride of my elliptical I can’t really go at “running” speed, but it was still a good exercise. I think I am on the elliptical again tonight, perhaps friday as well. With the half marathon coming up the first weekend in May, I really want to make sure I’m not being stupid about jumping back in. In “Will Run for Margarita’s” latest blog entry – she mentioned using KT Tape for her Plantar Facia. I may toss that on tonight and when I do try to run again – just in case.
I’m thinking of picking up a pair of the Merril Trail Gloves for future trail-running.
