6 more LOOOONNNNNGGGG weeks...
Wednesday, January 27, 2010
OK, so I had a post-op doctors appointment on Monday. I have bee running slowly for about 2 weeks in anticipation of the doc telling me that I will be cleared to run on Jan. 25. Well, that's not how it went down. He told me no running for 6 more weeks! So, that means no Flying Pig marathon for me. I have been doing great at physical therapy - they were all shocked when I told them I couldn't run for 6 more weeks. But, I do get to decrease my PT times to one visit a week, plus home exercises daily.
I am just so disappointed I want to die. I was so ready to get back into hard training; and the runs I was doing were getting faster and faster. I guess I'll go back to walking/bike/elliptical (which I HATE) for 6 more weeks. My new goal is to run the half, because I know there's no way I'll be ready to run the full marathon 7 weeks after I start training. But I have already done a 7.33 mile run, so I think I could manage a half.
Very sad and depressed right now about this.
