My Game Plan for Recovery.

Let's talk about what lies ahead for me in terms of running........

But first, last night........

I repeated my lunch and snack eats for dinner.  Real original.  Food blogger of the year.

We were rushing out the door last night because I got home late from buying a table for $40 (can't wait to show you the finished product) and we were going to be gone from 6-9.  I think I was still high from my run that morning and I forgot about a minor thing called dinner (that doesn't happen in Janae's world).  I made Billy turn around and I ran inside to grab a lil' (okay, not little, more like a family sized serving bowl) of something to eat in the car.

Leftover homeade Taboule with lettuce thrown in.  I am seriously addicted to that stuff.  Sorry for the blurry picture.  It smelt too good to wait to dig in to take another picture.  And that green thing....that is a shirt that was in my back seat and I used it as my napkin because I forgot to bring one out.  That is classy and now my shirt has an oil stain on it.

We went over to some friends house to see their new baby, make banana bread and let the husbands talk about technology and playstations.

After that we headed over to Yogurtland to meet some friends.  Yes, that was twice in one day.

In my defense Billy set up the double date and I didn't find out about it until I had already gone with my neice.

Wait a second, why am I defending my obsession?  For as much as you know I may go there 3 times a day and only post about it once every few days....muhahahah if you only knew, you just have a small glimpse into my crazytown life.  I minor victory in my world...for the first time my yogurt weighed less than B-diggity.  Usually mine is double his....baby steps.

Why I decided to lay my head on Billy? Oh yeah, it was ten o'clock at night.  The party animal in Janae comes out during the summer......that is until I can do early morning long runs again:)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I guarantee 80% of you runners reading this have come back from a major injury, whether it be a stress fracture, muscle tear, sprain etc.  Every person is different and every doctor says different things.  I am going to share with you what my doc is having ME do.

-One mile every other day SLOW.  If I wake up feeling good, then the next run I can do one mile run one mile, walk and one mile run (watch out Kara).   I will stay there until I go in again in 2 weeks to see how the legs are handling it.

-Run 3 times a week (or less if it is painful) and cross train like a maniac on the other days (1-2 complete rest days a week).

-Keep swimming so that I can do an Ironman someday.  Yes, I did just admit that I really want to do one now with all the swimming I have been doing.

-Listen and be ultra-sensitive to any pain or discomfort.  Soreness is normal but pain is NOT.   Taking a week or two off is a heck of a lot better than taking over THREE MONTHS off.

-Strengthen my quads, hamstrings, inner and outer thighs and glutes like crazy.   I guess those days of doing 5 minutes of weights before I get bored on my own are gone....time to buckle down.

-Eat lots of ice cream.  Seriously, he said that but mainly because I told him that I think it was one of the main healing components.

If you are injured right now please be PATIENT.  It sucks having to wait for the go ahead but you WILL heal a lot faster if you listen to your doctor and avoid the urge to lace your shoes up and hit the pavement.  Patience is a virtue (unless you are talking about candy or donuts).

IMG 5156

Thank you femurs, I will treat you good forever-ever.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have been injured in the past, how did you ease back into running?

Do you ever forget to eat a meal?  Do you plan out your meals that day, in advance, right when you are about to eat it?

-NEVER.....I am always planning out my next meal as soon as I finish the previous one.  Billy (and a lot of boys that I know) will just go throughout the day and forget to eat until they get home.  I know...... I don't understand it either.

What is your FAVORITE way to cross-train?

-Swimming and dare I say it....the elliptical.

Lol I love that ice cream is part of your plan. And again, I'm so glad that you're able to run again! :)

Hi! I just want to say I adore adore adore your blog! I stumbled upon it one day a couple of months ago and have been hooked since! I am so excited to see you can run again!! Seriously you are such a motivator- you run so fast! I can totally relate to your injury (though I think yours is definitely worse!!) I have run 2 marathons (Providence, RI to qualify for Boston and then the 2010 Boston)... BOTH times I went back to running to quickly and gave myself bursitis in the hip and couldn't run for 2 months each time. Literally so depressed I wouldn't even speak to my fiance (boyfriend at the time) because he was still running his 6-minute miles while I was gaining weight breathing air! Sorry for the rant... but I've learned that I can do half marathon after half marathon with NO PROBLEM... so I'm trying realllllllllllly hard to come up with a training plan to run a marathon again with no injury! Hopefully before our wedding in October. Again sorry for the rant but we just moved to NH out of MA/RI big city and sometimes it gets a little lonely here up north! PS we have no YOGURT places like you do.....however I am 99% certan they might be putting one in in the center of town and I may or may not run by it daily and peer in the window......

The only times I forget to eat a meal is usually on weekends when I'm having tons of fun. During the week, sometimes planning an awesome meal is what gets me through a boring work day. I'm so pathetic. Lol.

I was injured last year and I eased back in pretty much how you are. Lots of strength training and easier runs. I stuck to the treadmill for a while because it was lower impact.

swimming and biking are my favorite ways to cross train.

I have shattered my finger, torn my rotator cuff, and had an extra rib removed before. All three surgeries took me out of swimming for months at a time (I used to swim competitively)

Huge planner here and plan almost all my meals! But when a craving hit be sure those plans don't always stick!
I love the ellipitcal right now! Used to think it was wimpy for some reason...

You will totally do an Ironman one day, and it will be awesome!

Um, no. I never forget to eat. Like you, I think about my next meal before I even finish what I am eating. My hubby forgets to eat too, I just don't get it...

That's an awesome game plan! I(knock on wood) have not been injured yet while running, besides tripping over my feet.

I never forget to eat, it is something I think about frequently, but my husband forgets to eat all of the time. How do boys do that? My stomach would be eating itself in minutes if I tried to do that.

My favorite way to cross-train is biking. There's just something about the wind in my hair that makes it awesome.

Yay Janae! You have the green light to run :) That must be so exciting. I know that if you ever did an ironman, you'd kick some serious butt.

Easing back into exercise has never been hard, since I know how much my body can handle. If I feel pain or am dying from overexertion, I know I need to stop.

Seriously! How do boys just forget to eat??!! I swear it's because they're lazy. At least that's what my boyfriend is LOL

My favorite way to cross train is spinning. It always gets my heart pumping and leaves me drenched in sweat!

I had a patellar subluxation, aka knee cap moved out of place, and I had to do similar things that you are doing. I did physical therapy and strengthening like you, and I even went swimming a few times even though I hate swimming. Maybe I can learn to like it like you though! I want to get in to tri's too.

My husband forgets to eat too unless the food is placed in front of him. I don't understand it either! I'm like you and start planning my next meal as soon as I finish the last.

Cross training favorite right now is Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, and the elliptical.

So excited for you to run again! Your enthusiasm about it is contagious! I was taking a running break, but you're making me want to run now!

I think that sounds like a great plan! Good Luck!

After I was cleared to run from my stress fractures, I went out and ran a slow 3 miles. I ran every other day and tried to keep them slow and steady. And then I ran a half marathon four weeks later! Oops.

I'm still terrified of rebreaking the bones so I take a calcium supplement and eat greek yogurt almost every day.

Fav cross training. Biking. Does yoga count? It has helped me so much with recovery.

Forget meals? Never!

Swimming and biking!!! YAY for you!

I found your blog a few weeks ago and love it! So motivational!

I've never, ever, EVER wanted to run before. Detested it. But for some reason, this last 3 months, that's all I want to do. So I'm starting slow and I think I can say....I really like it. I need to get out there more, but time is an issue these days.

Thanks for your great posts!

Yay for you Janae!!

My PT cleared me to start running last week after my posterior tibial tendonitis.. he started me off with 3-4 minutes of running every other day for a week. Now we're at 8-10 minutes for a week, and hopefully tonight he clears me for me! Yay for recovery!!

I've never had a serious injury and I really can't imagine having one. Your plan sounds awesome and like something I should bookmark in case one day I do have an injury!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:38 AM , Anonymous Bess@Bess Be Fit said...

My favorite way to cross train would either be the elliptical or walking on the treadmill! I wish I had a pool in my backyard so I could tan and swim and work out all at the same time....one day! You will be back before you know it girl!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:40 AM , Blogger DEM said...

I have torn both ACLs, and both during highly competitive times in my life - it sucks, but taking it slow on the recovery and sticking to my doc's/PTs plans were key for me to come back 110% - and heck, now I have two bionic knees to keep me running out there - or at least that's what my Dr. says :)

I try not to forgot meals, I would say I plan them more so than eat on the fly.

Congrats again on being able to run - even if it isn't 20 milers - nautilus/weights were my best friends when I was recovering - it will make recovery ten times easier!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:44 AM , Anonymous Meg said...

WOOO Congrats Janae!!! I'm so happy your femurs have healed! I think your recovery plan is great!
I had a major rotator cuff injury when I was a competitive swimmer... for 4 years of my career! Cortizone shots and convincing my coaches to let me kick a few sets were what I did, but 6 years later it still hurts sometimes!
I forget breakfast sometimes, and lunch if I'm busybusy during the day.. but usually I plan every meal.. because I look forward to when I get to eat again!
My favorite cross training is swimming, yoga, and spinning!

Yay for you being healed! It must be sooo nice to be able to run again!! When I am done with my cancer treatments, I cannot wait to lace up my running shoes and also run an entire mile!

I never forget to eat a meal, haha. It's kinda sad, no matter how busy I am at work, I still make sure to chow down.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:50 AM , OpenID strawberrysweat said...

I'm also working to come back from a running injury, and for me, I'm using a lot of walk breaks in my runs. I notice that it helps my knee and allows me to go a bit further every time. I'm also trying to incorporate more strength training, but I haven't done any swimming yet (no pool!).

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:51 AM , Blogger Jen said...

You are BACK! This is awesome! I'm so excited for you! You really have been such a good girl and it takes so much self control to not do too much. You are going to do great with your recovery because you have this awesome game plan! Since you have to run slow... it would be the perfect time to run with me!
I wish I could forget a meal now and then. It wouldn't hurt me but alas... I think about my next meal all day long.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 7:56 AM , Blogger Britt said...

I'm glad to hear that you are being cautious with your come back. If there is anything in the world to make you want more then ever to achieve your goals, it is an injury. And hit those weights girl! Squats and lunges are your best friends, just ask Kara.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 8:29 AM , Blogger Alisa said...

The only times I forgot a meal are when I've been snacking all day and my stomach isn't begging for food. So I guess that isn't really skipping, but I live for my three squares, so it is to me.

My favorite cross training would be kickboxing. It works your body in a totally different way and makes me feel like a beast!

I'm so happy you can run again! Did you know that today is National Running Day?

I ran cross country and track in college so I had my fair share of injuries, including stress fractures. My coach and trainer had me get back into running by starting out at running for 5 minutes and then adding a minute a day. Slow and steady. Also, I know with stress fractures that it's really important to run on soft surfaces (no treadmills!), so don't be afraid to run in your neighbors' yards.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:00 AM , Anonymous Liz said...

So happy for you :) When I came back from a tibial stress fracture, I would always push down on my shin bone to check for fractures. OK, I still do that over a year later because injury paranoia sticks around much longer than the actual injury.

I'm so happy for you!! I'm trying out BodyPump and spinning this week at a new gym I joined. More cross-training is my goal this summer!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:03 AM , OpenID myhighonlife said...

You have a great plan there, Janae!! I'm hoping to do an Ironman someday too... I Just need to work on running more than a half marathon first. I'm signing up for my FIRST fulll marathon today! Any tips?! Or a good training plan you liked?

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:06 AM , Blogger Pamela said...

Glad to see you can get back on your feet. When you mentioned to be patient, you're so right! I've had knee surgery before and this was before I was into a fitness routine, but some years prior to that I had to get stiches in my right shin. I thought nothing of walking normally, oh boy was I wrong! I didn't realize "how" much we use our shins and "how" slow I had to walk. I couldn't walk fast if I tried. I really was shocked with this!! I worked in NYC at the time and used a cane, just so people would know I was the walking wounded. After that I said I'd never take my legs or the ability to walk for granted again!
Heal well and enjoy the ice cream!!

I had a stress fracture in my hip last summer and took 12 weeks off from running. I couldn't even walk quickly, it was that painful. But now I know how to judge pain vs discomfort/soreness, and I know to listen to my body. I had to ease back in, similar to your plan, and although it took a while, I'm a stronger runner than I was before (thank you cross training and strength training!) Keep your head up! The worst is over :)

Froyo twice in one day is so good for recovery. ;)

You are setting a great example on how to not shut down when in recovery and still care for yourself to allow it to happen. Clearly - you're awesome.

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:25 AM , Blogger Christina @ The Athletarian said...

Yep, I got PFS training for my first marathon. I continued to train but VERY lightly...really short and slow runs, and a lot of cross training. i still ran the race, but a lot slower than I hoped.

I never forget to eat. Sometimes I even plan the day before!

In terms of crosstraining, I also love the elliptical but my heart lies with spinning!

Woo hoo I am so excited for you and love all of the tips that you shared. You are just amazing and I love you so much!

Could you please share the exercizes you are doing to strengthen those legs. My legs are weak sauce. And heck no I never miss a meal. Even if I'm not hungry if it is meal time I eat! :)

P.S. This is Rachelle!!!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:30 AM , Blogger Neon Blonde Runner said...

When I had the stress fracture in my pelvis, I had to take off almost 5 months....I made sure I was fully healed. I started doing the elliptical, which I hated. The best substitute was spinning, which I started doing a lot and then I started back running on the treadmill.

Then some full blown, outdoor running, it was heaven!

 
At June 1, 2011 at 9:30 AM , Blogger Julia said...

eeeeeek. I feel like this week is the ultra holiday. i woke up today and was STILL so excited for you. I think it even motivated me on my run because it was the BEST run I have had in forever.

Can we train for an Ironman together? One day my dad told me he thought I would do one some day...he said it just seemed like my thing. I didn't believe him so I have never told anyone but maybe we could train together? haha!

I am probably NOT the best example of how to come back from an injury. I know I pushed myself way too much with the anxiety of the upcoming marathon, etc. That just resulted in more problems. I really think if you can take it slow and listen to your body you will be in much better shape. I can't wait to take a "real" break and hopefully feel whole again after it. Maybe I can learn to swim? haha!

The thought of forgetting to eat a meal petrifies me! I'm working on curbing my obsession with planning out every single morsel of food that's going to enter my mouth all day the second that I've bounded out of bed...but I like to plan ahead because it gives me something to look forward to when I work out.

As far as cross training goes - I love lifting and surprisingly also the rowing machine

do i ever forget to eat? NO WAY! haha. do i run out of time to eat? OFTEN. sometimes i go to bed hungry because it's too late for dinner and time slipped away from me. tis the life of a mother turning soccer mom.

i'm so glad for you janae and your one mile walk/runs. i haven't had a major injury from running but running is newish for me. i've only been running for about 3 years.

right now, i'm crazy about jillian michaels circuit training program from making the cut. i've been writing about it on my blog. i'm about 1/2 way through the program. the best "cross-training" for me.

Keep up the hard work recovering! I am a big believer in recovering properly! In High School I tore my ACL playing soccer. It was tough not being able to play, but I looked at recovery as a way to come back better and stronger! I did, and it was amazing! Keep it up girl! Take it one day at a time! Strength training and cross-training are crucial! My favorites are Spinning or any sort of biking (a stroll on my beach cruiser counts right?)and hiking! You can do this! Love ya!!

I had bilateral tibia stress fractures, had to take several months off and call off a marathon. It was devastating, but I reintroduced myself to running and took days off unlike before.

..and if by forget a meal you mean forget you ate already and eat again, then yes-all the time.

Yoga and swimming are winning my heart right now.

That could have been the best news I've heard all day. My doctor has me doing the same strength training for my legs as yours is having you do on yours. (Wow. Did that even make any sense?) Needless to say, in the last week I literally woke up in the night because I was laying on my back and my butt was KILLING ME.

It's the good kind of pain :).

I haven't run in 3 weeks and am nervous but will definitely do it slow and see how it goes. Def planning on using my best frienemy---ICE!! Just trying to strengthen my hips, glutes, hammies, quads, and arches of my feet to get this plantar fasciitis outa the way! lots of stretchign too. Keep us updated on your recovery!! I'll do the same :)

I've had ongoing issues with stress fractures in my footsies :( annoying, but i'm learning to accept it as my body's way of saying STOP! CHILL! RELAX!

I NEVER forget meals. Food is always on my mind :D

Fave crosstraining = spin classes + elliptical. Though i'm currenly doing them MUCH more than I run!
