- Not Forgotten... If I ever think y'all have given up reading my non-running adventures just remind me to check out yesterday's post and all the feedback I got about what I should do about this stupid leg of mine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your comments, emails, words of encouragement, fist shakes to the leg, and most especially the reassurance that I am still a runner and not crazy for feeling this way. You guys are seriously the best. (And may or may not have made me cry several times)
- Calcium Queen... A lot of you wondered about my calcium/vitamin D situation and I just wanted to assure you that I've been on an increased dose of both since practically the get go. I also had bloodwork done back in June and all my levels came back well within range. For those that wondered about my period situation, you can also read more about that in that post. (Although there will be another post on this particular subject in the near future. Stay tuned.) In short, as I said, I've been doing everything I could possibly do to help this along; hobble around on crutches and/or in the boot for the first 17 weeks, xtrain when I could, do nothing when I couldn't, take all the supplements I could get my hands on that might help, ice regularly, PT it up almost every day, etc... While I have looked in to bone stimulator's, they are extremely expensive and not covered by insurance so that will have to be a last resort $3k investment. I'm still putting together what I'll do about Monday's call, but I assure you there will be some serious discussions to be had.
- A different kind of PT... Personal Trainer that is. Our gym is running a promo for the ladies this month for a free 30 min session with a personal trainer to get acquainted with the free weights section of the gym. Since I'm back on xtraining restriction I figured this would be an excellent opportunity to tune up my free weights knowledge. My session is Saturday morning and I'm pretty pumped, I already spoke to the trainer and let him know my leg situation and also that I wanted to tone out these beefed up arms of mine and he said he knows exactly the kind of
torturetraining I need. Have you ever taken advantage of the personal trainers at your gym?
