Adventures in Running with Maurine

Still injured.  The stress fracture has been rediagnosed as severe bursitis in the knee (Duck’s foot bursitis).  Add that to the chronic bursitis in my hip and I am still out of running/walking until January.

However – I am happy it is not a stress fracture so I don’t have to worry about the bone breaking further or anything like that.

In the meantime, I am back to light cross training by recumbent biking, arc trainer, elliptical and swimming – making sure to keep my foot flat and not push too hard with my leg.  I am also doing about 25 minutes of strength training 3x per week, doing some exercises to strengthen my legs and hips and increase flexibility.

Thank heavens I got back into quilting this year.  If I didn’t have that to keep me occupied, I would have gone off the deep end before this.
