c25k: day off

today is a day off from the c25k, so i did 20 sit-ups this morning instead, which gave me a chance to really look at my legs. my left calf is still noticeably smaller than the right. it's been 2 whole years now since i broke that foot! i'm amazed there's still a difference. half-tempted to dig out my old aircast and wear it on my right leg to even them out, but really i'd rather shoot myself. i guess i'll just stay lopsided, and probably no one will notice but me.

speaking of my broken foot, it did give me a few little twinges, last night as i was falling asleep. but that is it, thankfully!

i'm just doing the math in my head now... the back/shoulder chronic pain started fall of 2009 (i got a few twinges in my shoulder yesterday during my run, actually) but currently seems to be manageable with fish oil supplements. then in the winter of 2009/2010 was the horrible time, when i got less than zero exercise and ate a terrible diet and put on a ton of weight. then in spring of 2010 i ran a 5k and was slightly killed by hills, and then had all of the breathing tests done and the puffers and whatnot. and september of 2010 i broke my foot and got my braces.

still climbing back from all of that. but slowly, slowly!
