Elliptical and the end of the movie!

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.


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
