I walked into physical therapy and Troy greeted me with, "So, did you run last week?"
Me, sheepishly: "Just a little bit."
Troy: "How little."
Me: "Just one minute."
Troy: Knowing smile.
Me: "At a time..."
Troy: "Come on, how much total?"
Me: "Only five minutes in all with one minute of walking in between."
Troy: "I knew you would. That's why I told you no. I knew if I said yes you'd overdo it."
Me: "So I can start running now?"
Troy: "No. But I know you will anyway, just try to take it really easy."
Seriously, I get winded just walking and with just the little bit of running I do once a week I can feel that my foot, ankle, calf, and lower leg aren't ready to sustained running so I'm doing the elliptical trainer, stationary bike, and walking. My ankle was still swollen from running yesterday so today I just did the bike. My ankle is feeling really good though, it just swells up quite a bit when I overdo it.
