Things are gradually calming down but running is not yet possible. Physical therapy has the best toys. My place has the powerplate show below. I highly recommend it except when you come up from the squat and your head and jaw begin to vibrate uncomfortably. Otherwise, lots of squats, lunges, single leg stability stuff, and those annoying crab walk with elastic bands. The results are less pain (particularly when using foam roller) and increased strength, stability and range of motion. I can even "run" across a street when the light changes without hobbling or screaming. Still not there yet for real running which is insanely frustrating (especially given mild dry late fall). Just glad I didn't do anything structural. Followup visit to sports medicine guy this afternoon. Unfortunately,I suspect I will just getting back on the road at the height of winter horribleness without a lot of time to gear up for Rome.
In the meantime, I have been biking to elliptical in a 2:1 ratio plus
occasional pool work and core. Or as the Zen Master would ask: "Can one
train for a marathon without running?"
