Being injured kinda, sorta blows. Especially when you're a runner with a foot injury. However, while I nurse this baby back to health, I've decided not to be completely lazy. Yes, Sunday I went for a little run. I think it was 2 miles. Since I felt OK, my plan is to limit "long runs" to 3 miles on the weekends. So what exactly do I think I'm going to do during the week?
For me personally, walking feels fine. So on the treadmill, I started walking at an 8% incline at 3.4 last week and have gradually increased to 3.8, pending any foot pain. My treadmill has a program that automatically puts sprints into a walk so depending on how I feel, I want to start incorporating that back into my workouts.

Strength training is something I do not enjoy. But have been doing it anyway. I've been incorporating leg lifts, squats, arms and abs into my regimen. I'm hoping that by doing this, when I'm 100% ready to run again I'm not dragging ass like last June.

What are your go-to workouts when injured?
