Elliptical, again...

I did 22 miles on the elliptical this weekend. 12 Saturday, and 10 Sunday. Not at all fun, but it's the closest exercise to running that doesn't hurt my Achilles.

Tried a 1/4 mile run - first run since last weekend - and the Achilles was barking and not at all happy, so I laid-off and did a bit more of the elliptical. Grrrr....
While I'm obviously very frustrated with my Achilles slow recovery, I know that my only chance to run - versus walk - the Boston Marathon rests with my not running again until its completely recovery!
Working hard to see the 'glass' as half-full:
  1. By having qualified at Houston in January I'm eligible to run Boston both in 2009 and 2010.
  2. I'm registered for Madison in May and Chicago in October!
There'll plenty of good runs in the future!
