And the Recovery Continues

So, I finally feel like I am starting to get better.

Not perfect, but better.

I am pretty sure that I will only be running the half at Disney, but I continue to hold out some hope.

I have gotten to do some rehab and keep some fitness on one of these:
Cool, right? I have been running at 75-80% of my body weight here on earth.

Monday, I did 14 minutes, but had to stop because I was "limping" (clearly, I didn't make the call on that one!). Wednesday, I ran 35 minutes, and felt fine. Today, I ran 18 miles at 9:13 pace, and felt good! I am a little tired/dehydrated (it is HOT running in a bubble!).

I keep hoping that my coach and doc will say, "ok Kacie, go for the full instead of the half," but I know it is doubtful!

Ok, back to healing! I am planning a "year in review" blog post tomorrow, so I'll be back!


  1. Kacie - what in the heck is that thing and what does it do?

    And just for the record, it would look really cool in my living room (-;

  2. It is an alterG treadmill, and it changes the amount of weight you run with by pumping in air and lifting you up! That way you can run the distance without the pounding. They are crazy crazy expensive, but fun to borrow!

  3. Think "Big Picture"...sometimes better to be safe and have the rest of the season to look forward to :). Hard choices I know....good luck!!

  4. Can't wait for the year-end blog!!

  5. Get well soon Kacie!!
    I love the look of the anti-gravity treadmill!!
    Looks like fun!
    This is your mother posting-but the only way to get it to post it is identifying me as your Oma!!!
    I obviously need some remedial technology lessons!

  6. I think that might just be the coolest training tool I saw of 2010!!
