          Ye ole foot is gonna have good days and bad days.  The bad days are reminders to take it easy.  You're doing more than your doctors ever expected, or as the ole saying goes, "You've come a long way, baby!!" Big grin

              Way to go Jim! And yes, there will be good days and bad days, but overall you are doing great. Keep it up! 


              Thanks, Leslie, very nice of you to get the weekly totals up so soon! So... the recovery and non-focussed running continues....


              Nancy, you and I are in the same situation with no upcoming race to train for. Just gotta rediscover running for the heck of it. I always feel I have to do a longer run on Wednesday and Saturday, and a longish run on Sunday... but, who cares what we do, right?
