Monday: Water aerobics + ~ 10 min water running
Tuesday: Core & weights
Wednesday: Water aerobics + ~ 10 min water running + balance exercises
Thursday: Core & weights
Saturday: Core & Weights -- also walked about 1-1.5ish miles in sneakers with my orthodics in them. Bottom of foot hurt by end. (Really curious WTF is up. Awaiting MRI scheduling.) Stretches for calf and IT. Balance work.
I've been noticing that where the hot spot was on my bone scan, about 1-2 inches below my knee, is more twingey than it used to be. Does an sfx sort of "ping" as it heals? Also my IT band and right glute area has been very tight. I've been rolling, but I think it's time for a massage.
Julz, kayaking kind of scares me. It's a little claustrophobic, IMHO.

Robert and I would love to go kayaking around Ross Island with you, but we don't have any kayaking experience. Do you have to take a class before they'll let you rent a kayak here?
Oh, and Loofah - I posted on the Bright White Blobs thread that when I've broken bones in the past they've gotten sore at times, and itchy at times during the healing process. I think it's part of healing, but it can also get sore in different weather conditions. For me, humidity always caused it.

Sigh. That is the million dollar question. At the present, it appears to be related to IT band friction syndrome, but was originally just supposed to be a MCL strain- the pain is on the medial (inside) side of my knee and primarily during the recovery part of my stride, not impact. I couldn't have a normal overuse injury, no sirrreee. It is getting better at a glacial pace, but I'm meeting with my chiro & coach Friday to see what's next.
It was just one of those things that came on after I did too much- I should have known better. To say I've learned my lesson is putting it mildly.
Reading about your experience has been helpful! Felt a little better to know I'm not the only one not out there right now.
Although I don't get a cool lable for my injury...

I know exactly how you feel. I've been a non-runner for three months now, and when people ask what's wrong with me I can only say..."I don't really know, my knee just hurts." I think I'm getting better, but recovery has been so slow it's hard to tell. Blah, blah, blah...

I got some itchiness right at the fx site yesterday and was excited because I know that can be a sign of healing.

Monday - 10 min water running. & water aerobics class. I get phemomenally hungry after this class and the water work, bt. WTF?
Tuesday - Off
Wednesday - Unintentional off day, pool was closed due to chemical issues and when I got home I didn't feel up to anything else.
Thursday - 10 min water running. & water aerobics class.
Friday - Core work & stretching & balance exercises. Balance work is going well on injured side which is neat. Also 1.5ish mile walk & massage. Massage guy says leg no longer feels like water balloon and he can actually palpitate the muscles. Good sign.
Saturday - Upper body weights & stretching.
Overall I am feeling better. Foot still hurts, though not as much. I FINALLY got my MRI scheduled for next week, which will hopefully clear up any other questions I had about tendons, et.al.
Leg has not felt twingey in the sfx site this past week. But I have noticed that my posterior tibial tendon area, the area I've been having on & off issues with since March, is making itself known more than it has in a long while. Is this the ghost of injuries past trying to heal? Any advice? I'm pretty sure that's where it all started, so I'm curious about the order in which the body heals: the more acute first? Does the body triage itself?
I've been off 6 weeks as of tomorrow (Sun). I know sfx is still not healed, I still feel it slightly when I get up after a while sitting or going down stairs (after a whiile sitting). But I actually went down the stairs fairly quickly today and it felt ok. I can also walk faster (I'm not intending to walk faster, but I have noticed that I now can keep up with Justin, who is a fast walker -- and I normally am a fast walker as well). I'm pretty freakin happy with that. Oh and also I randomly turned my ankle today, on the bad leg, but it doesn't bother me at all.
I'm trying to do positive visualization and all that shizz. It might even be helping.
I think I might continue with the water stuff even after I'm healed. I definitely sense a difference in upper body strength. The resistance in the water can be kinda fun.

When I was injured in college, which was often, pool workouts usually made me ravenous, too. I figure it was from all the excitement of trying not to drown. But I've also read (in unreliable sources) that swimming tends to increase your appetite more than other exercise.Not sure how that works, but people say it... Anyway, it's good to hear you're enjoying the pool.
It's a simple question of weight ratios
