Was planning to go 2-Shoes on Monday… have been wearing the high-top basketball shoes in the house. Had to take the kids to Target this morning… it’s 85 out.. took one look at that heavy, hot, giant boot, and decided to forgo it. I doubt I will go back to it at this point. Walked around Target for about an hour pushing the kids in the shopping cart… every so often had to stop and rest for a minute. Was pretty tired when we finished. Got home and iced for about 20 mins., but is OK. Tomorrow we’ll try the park and a picnic with them. Should be interesting… a 3 1/2 year old, a 1 1/2 year old, and a gimp.
My surgeon said I’m allowed to wear a high-top shoe. So on Thursday I went out and got some. Ironic that I ruptured playing basketball for the first time in over 10 years… and the first thing I have to do when I’m getting better is buy basketball shoes.
Am also riding my bike (indoors on the trainer of course) each day… the first day (Wednesday I think), managed only 5 minutes at about 5 MPH. :) Last night got up to 20 minutes @ 10 MPH. My goal for this year is to do the ChessyMan AquaVelo.. 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike. That is in late September I think.. my physical therapist said she thought it was a reasonable goal for me. So we’ll see how my progress on the bike goes. The swim, no problem, the bike, we’ll just have to see how it goes. I’m swimming around 4x/week, around 2500 yards per swim, so will be in fine shape for that.
