Off the walking wagon again – jogging is too good

Well, it’s not like the female DG has fallen completely off the ‘take it easy’ wagon and she still is eager for Heidi’s opinion tomorrow, but this morning’s outing featured the longest stretch of jogging yet – from the San Mateo bike bridge to the Oak Creek apartments. She met up with Dawn Patrol member Judy and they both confessed that no other form of of exercise quite does it like jogging does – at least for them. She’s also getting into the dawn rhythm of having something catch her eye to photograph. This morning it was detail of a wreath that was adorning the gates into Allied Arts. A soggy weekend may push her back into the gym.

Thoughts four months post Achilles tendon surgery

So, while the female DG was recounting the lovely walks the DGs took during the Thanksgiving four-day holiday, the four month milestone, which came on Nov. 26, was overlooked. She continues to think she’s doing really well. She did ice after the walks but, hey, so does Tim Linsecum (ok, his arm is worth tons more than her left foot/ankle). What’s kind of weird is the subtle not quite throbbing that comes at the end of the day. It’s not at the site of the injury/surgery but a more diffuse feeling that starts at the ankle and goes up the calf a bit. This, of course, is when she needs the wisdom of Heidi (who the lucky male DG gets to see tomorrow) to understand what’s at work here. Meanwhile, the jogging itch is getting more earnest. She sees Oloff next week and is starting to think about a jubilant, if short jog, on New Year’s Day in Central Park. What a cool way back that would be.

And then there’s the promise of sunrise

Seeing a sunrise from the inside of a car doesn’t have the same pay off as feeling you’re actually¬† part of it, which was the case when the female Dual Gimpy/Grumpy was the female Dawn Jogger. But she’s thankful for the month of November nevertheless, a month that displays the dawn in the 6:00 hour rather than the 7:00 hour, as is the case in October (due to daylight savings time) and December and January. And now that it’s light earlier, the hills of the Big Dish area beckon mightily as she drives by on the way to her workout at the Page Mill Y.¬† She’ll be 16 weeks post Achilles tendon surgery this Friday and is going to get assessed by Heidi up at UCSF tomorrow morning when the male DG is in the MRI machine.
