Today we get the staples out. Just a couple more days of cone head and then we're onto more recovery. I won't feel quite as guilty leaving him if I don't have to put the cone on his head. He's still limping and not using his leg as much as I'd like, but I'm sure it's all normal. He is using it more each day so that's all goodness.
And I know I've been remiss in writing about my training. I have to say it's mostly because there isn't much to report. I haven't run much since the race. I'm back into a routine, but it's slow going - not just the increase in mileage, but my pace. I feel like a slug, a toad. I can't seem to get the rhythm. I can't seem to keep my heartrate down. Blah! This weekend is a 5k that I'll use as a new heartrate test. What will it tell me?
