Biking 5:00 [3] 1.5 mi (3:20 / mi)

Biking at PT. I gleefully put the seat at a normal height today while no one was looking :-).

Strength 20:00 [3]

I get the impression this PT just does random things with me to use the various things around the room. Thankfully this week should not result in the same level of soreness as last week! I did a could minutes of slidey things, dip things, leg presses with pointed toes (ouch!), squats with pointed toes, backwards walking, and toe raises. Strangely after not telling me to do anything related to the gym, the PT asked if I'd been going to the gym. Um, no? Presto can't go to the gym... (I didn't tell her that :-).)

She also (sort of arbitrarily) decided that I could benefit from an ankle brace that even though it is a side-to-side motion stopper, will supposedly reduce the impact of running? I am skeptical.

Running 5:00 [3] 0.71 mi (7:00 / mi)

Running on the treadmill with the brace. Strangely it makes my ankle work a lot more, possibly because it's harder to move my foot up and down? Not really sure. I'll try it on a couple of river runs, but I'm not convinced.

Running 28:10 [3] 3.1 mi (9:05 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 5

Easy run after lab with Presto and the new ankle brace. I'm not sure if it really changed anything, but at least it wasn't bad to run with. I'm not sure I'd like doing runs much longer than this in it though because it pushes on my shin in a bruisy sort of way. Maybe I'd get used to it. We saw two rabbits tonight to Presto's delight, and one of them even ran with us for a little while, which was fun for Presto but probably not so much for the rabbit. We also saw one of my classmates who I haven't seen in over 2 years. Lately my runs have been full of seeing random people :-).

Strength 5:00 [3]


Stretching 5:00 [3]

Nice and stretchy.
