This also means that I have only got one PAD contribution (for both Day 4 - Us and Day 5 - 4pm) to share for the whole week - tut tut! On Monday, hubby and I went on a wee excursion to Falkirk, to look at The Kelpies - recently unveiled, huge sculptures of horses' heads. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but I was fairly impressed in the end! The size of the sculptures is rather awe-inspiring, and I think they look quite attractive, too :)
As regards my marathon journey, today marks the official start date of my 20-week training programme. However, instead of lacing up my running shoes and pounding the pavement for 4 miles, I have been to the gym again, following my recovery programme. It is a little frustrating, but recovery and healing is what I need to focus on just now. There is light at the end of the tunnel: the podiatrist, who I saw last week, fitted me with orthotic insoles and said I should try short warm-up running exercises and maybe a very short and gentle run. So far, I haven't dared, for fear of making things worse, but I will give it a go tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed!!
Also, you might be glad to hear that the foam roller and I haven't completely fallen out but are in the process of making up ;-) Things are getting ever so slightly easier and ever so slightly less painful :) Baby steps, people, baby steps!
