Two weeks today since my accident.
First up i wanted to clarify to my fellow bloggers that i don't have a stress fracture.It's an ordinary run of the mill fall over and axe yourself type fracture!
I am glad of that because stress fractures sound like hell.
I saw a friend yesterday who heads up the emergency department at the local hospital and he said i should be able to do some faster walking soon...yay!A few weeks after that (week 5ish) maybe some light jogging.I am playing it by ear though and scared to do anything foolish lest it refracture.
I have cycled twice this week a twenty minute hilly cruise around a bit of sweating and before that a long flat 17.61km ride in 57 minutes Average 18.5kph.This was my third longest ride ever after sixfoot track.It was cool to get out on the bike but not the same as running by any means.I experimented with cadence because i know practically nothing as a cyclist.Counted out how many revs per minute i was doing it was about 60 at best this is equivalent to 120 steps in running....180 steps or 90revs per minute is the recommended speed for peddling and running.It is hard work for me getting it this fast on a bike.
I am also going to a swimming stroke correction class tonight apparently it is taught by an accomplished runner :-) who finished sixfoot track the other week.
In other good news i got a call to say i was successful in my job application/interview (and medical!!!!) for a new position!
They want me to start ASAP ie. next Tuesday! My manager doesn't want to let me go for a month so I am wrangling with my team leader and him to make it happen otherwise i might miss this opportunity.
Plenty more but thats all i have time for ATM.
