Today I went for 43 minutes on the elliptical machine (3.29 miles), then 2 minutes on the treadmill (.14 miles). The treadmills were all taken when I got to the gym this morning, and I got on a roll on the elliptical. :)
I returned to the orthopaedist yesterday, a follow-up appointment about my groin strain. The doctor could see improvement, and was encouraging about my 5K last Saturday. She did prescribe 4 more weeks of physical therapy, which will help. I was sore last night from the extra stretching during the appointment!
Meanwhile, I'm thinking about signing up for a Jeff Galloway Training Group that's starting near here next month. I'm especially intrigued by the emphasis on training and staying injury free. Advice is welcome!
