Today I am officially one week into my stress fracture recovery. That means 1 more week in the shoe and then I can start walking. Who knew I would be so excited about walking? Today I used the elliptical at the gym for the very first time. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to get a good sweat on and while it wasn't the same as running - it wasn't too shabby either.
Toward the end of my workout this woman came and started running on the treadmill. I could see over her shoulder that she was running at a 5 and my first thought was "even she can run at a 5." But then that thought immediately changed to "I want to be her." When I have become that woman of a certain age, I still want to be running. So I will continue to swim, elliptical and bike. Then in a few more weeks I will walk and then run/walk. But when I am her age I will still.be.running.
