Getting Desperate

Finally saw the neurologist today. Nothing of course is wrong with my nerves. He said I was healthy and he was pleased with my exercising, but he wanted me to rest with the running. He figures I have Achilles tendonitis, but he has put me on a waiting list for an MRI just to make sure.

Good bye 2011

2011 will definitely be a memorable year. It started out with some back pain, but after seeing a physiotherapist it worked itself out and I ran in my 1st Around the Bay 2-person relay and my 3rd 1/2 marathon in Mississauga.

Achilles Tendonitis

I had to stop running this week after I found out I have Achilles Tendonitis. After getting that "pins & needles" feeling in my Achilles, I knew I had to stop. I saw a physiotherapist this week and I have avoided cardio.

You can hear all about it on the latest episode of Step Ahead 006, where I discuss what I have gone through this week and what my future plans will be.

Check out the episode here.

Heads up!

I see that many people are getting to my blog by searching "Ford Focus FIre" or "casted ankle". I'll give you some help.

The story about my Ford Focus fire can be found here. Please note it's also in the top right hand of the screen, between 'running achievements' and 'search'.

The broken ankle story is here.

Anything else can be searched on by clicking the 'search' link at the top of the page or the search box on the bottom of the page.

9 years ago today...

On November 1st, 2002, I went to my local YMCA and got myself a gym membership. This profoundly changed my life.

I recently discussed on the 1st episode of Step Ahead my history of becoming a runner. That all began 9 years ago today. I was depressed, overweight and ashamed of what I had let myself come to. It had to stop. Thankfully I was able to pick myself up, dust myself off and move my feet forward. I am grateful for making that change.

My Ford Focus Fire

Okay, so insurance is taking care of a few things, but I need to start kicking up a fuss with Ford.

Any ideas? I've been doing some research and I have found some other complaints or stories regarding fires in Ford Focuses.

My car was in good condition. It was well maintained and I have most of my records. Although my last servicing that was done in St. John's, Newfoundland, went up with the car.
