yes, please. :)
last week went much better than expected, and the travel actually allowed me to get in a little more cardio than i've been able to do recently. i did end up switching out of my boot and into running shoes a few days early, though. the pain in my right arch was becoming much more unbearable than the pain in my bone, so i made the switch early. hopefully i didn't shortchange myself.
as far as this week goes, it's another busy week, but not quite as "jumpy" as they have been. i'll be in dallas until thursday and then i'll be in san antonio and austin until saturday night. the only training difficulties i should have this week are time (not equipment) related. i'll be working from 8 to 5 on tuesday and 8 to 2 (when we leave for san antonio) on thursday-- so we'll see what i manage to squeeze in.
i think one of the most challenging things about not being able to run is the inflexibility of your time. with running, i can always wake up 30 minutes earlier or squeeze in a run at some random time; but, when all i can do is cross train, my schedule must coincide with that of the pool or the gym or at least the daylight. :) needless to say, i cannot wait to start running again. i love when i have NO excuses for missing a workout.
