One of the highs of the week would have to be that yesterday was our four year "anniversary" of getting our Noah! It all happened really quickly and the grim prognoses we got from the doctors should have had us scared to death, but I knew he was my baby and just felt peace and faith that it would all be ok. Here are pics from our first day with Noah -
And here is a picture from yesterday with Nate and Noah. :)
Running has been good this week! Still nothing exciting or impressive in regards to pace or mileage, but I have been averaging 8 miles a day and have done strides and the feet are holding steady. They still aren't perfect but haven't gotten any worse and I am not having any pain when running. I went today for a Myofascial release massage at the PT's office today and another E-stym treatment and am going to have the Myofascial release massage a few more times next week, so hopefully that will help get this last little bit of soreness/tightness to go away completely. It has felt awesome to be running regularly again and I have relaxed enough to enjoy it this week. Yay!
The weather changed drastically this week though. Up until Thursday morning I was running in a t-shirt or long sleeve top and shorts in the early mornings. Then Thursday morning it was 29 degrees! I had to bust out the gloves and beanie. This morning was more sub-freezing temps. I am NOT ready for winter yet!!!
