20 weeks post surgery: to jog or not to jog?

That was the the question on the female DG’s mind this morning. While a non-option today – she walked with the male DG and they simultaneously got interested in photographing the same small patch of sky in the otherwise cloudy sky, she knew that would be the first question she asked Oloff today. After yesterday’s four interval jog amidst her morning walk, the tendon was achier than usual (usual being no ache, even after walking four miles, her uppermost limit at the moment). But was that ‘good’ ache or ‘bad’ ache? Stressing to recovery or doing harm?

So while Oloff looked at her now fully healed (at least externally) heel/ankle, she asked: “When can I start jogging?” “A month,” was the first response. But when she said she was aiming for a New Year’s jog in Central Park, he ok’d 10 minutes intervals (after asking what her former weekly mileage was). What she will do tomorrow morning, she’s unsure. But she knows more of what’s right and what’s not will get sorted out when Heidi visits both DGs on Saturday.
