Had my orthopedic doctors appointment yesterday. I have been cleared to start light training again. Good news is that I didn't fracture my leg while running in the 1/2. Basically the xrays showed that the muscle has pulled away from the bone on my fibula. The space between the muscle and the fibula, new bone is growing. It can take up to 6 months for the tenderness and pain to be 100% gone. He did clear me for non-impact exercising, ie swimming, bike, elliptical, and weight lighting. In conjunction with that, I can also start running again but slowly. Like a mile at a time.

I've been in remodeling hell at my house for the last week. Hopefully I can start some training next week and get ready for the 5k in 4 weeks.

Glad it was something that will heal on it's own and nothing too serious. Hopefully the pain will go away. Still working towards a 5K around July.

Good luck with the remodeling. I think next time we'll just pay someone and go on vacation while they do it. Always takes me 3x as long and I always have to go back and fix the things I screw up the first time.

Now that they added a 10K the Pirate Princess may want to run the Dopey. 5K, 10K, Half and the Full. Four t-shirts and 6 medals for the low, low price of around $500. She asked if anyone else thinking about it? I promised her I would train for the 5K and walk it with her.

Also, when reservations open up, I am going to book Il Mulino the night before the Half so she can carb up. It has great revues and I have wanted to try that restaurant for a while. It is early I know but if anyone else is interested, let me know. I'll also do a reminder as we get closer. The more the merrier.

When you register for the races...does having a Disney Visa have a perk to it???

It lets you register a few days before the general population and I believe you got 10% off the registration fee.

According to some other sites, DVC/Annual Passholders/Disney Visa cardmembers can register on April 3. No word about discounts or a link yet.

I just read that somewhere too. Sure would be nice to get some 45 degree weather or above so I can get motivated to get back out there. The lungs burned from the cold air the last couple times I went out.

I am really hoping that the 3rd is the date. I wound up getting a deal at the contemporary so I went ahead and booked my room. Initially it was gonna just be a solo trip for me, but with the announcement of Dopey DW and 6 other friends from church will be coming down too.
