I took Dixie Dog and Cracker out for a 3 mile run tonight on the Rillito river. They had a good time, although Cracker really ran fast and dragged me along the whole time.
You could tell they were out of shape, because they had their tongues hanging out afterwards. I was exhausted from the work week, so I thought 3 miles was enough for me, too. I met a guy while we were out there that was walking very slowly with 2 arm brace crutches and lower leg braces. He said he was run over by a truck a year a ago and that it has been a long year. I am sending him such good blessings - what a nice guy. Some people have more in life to carry than others.
I ran 7 miles on Tuesday, and 5 on Thursday (both on the Rillito, because at least I can run on the dirt path). I feel a little sluggish, but I'm getting the mileage back up slowly. The work situation is still on hold, although I'm doing a few things to deal with it (but I can't mention them here). Needless to say, I'm watching every penny...just in case.
My wrist feels great! I still have to wear the brace until Thursday, when I return to the surgeon's office. I still can't do a lot of things, but I'm back to normal typing, I can write well, and I can style my hair. My leg arm is getting buff and I think in the long run, I'll become a little more ambidextrious. I can tell it is healing up nicely. I'll start physical therapy once the doc gives the go ahead. Plan for next weekend - trail run if the bone is healed. Wahoo!
