I have been avoiding blogging and feeling a bit BLAH! I think I have a touch of the BLUES! I am not a fan on doing nothing. I have been feeling heavy (AKA fat)and unmotivated. It has been 3 weeks since the marathon with minimal running and 10 days straight of REST! UGH!! The top of my foot is still tender and seems to hurt the most when I am sleeping and in the early morning.
Today I tried RUNNING. My girls woke me up at 6:30 and the sun was SHINING. So I decided to head out and give it a try. The first mile was mildly painful. I could feel the pain but it wasn't too bad. I was hoping it would be GONE...but by mile 2 it was feeling better (still there) and seemed to come and go. I went slow partly just because I didn't really want it to end. I knew I should not push it and pretty sure I went further (5 miles) than I was "suppose" to but it was such a BEAUTIFUL morning. 7:00 a.m. and I was wearing a tank, shorts and SWEATING!! The best!
I still have this lump on the top of my foot. It's like soft tissue, so I know I am not out of the woods yet? Seems crazy that it is still inflamed...so I will reluctantly go to doc tomorrow and see what they say.
I am bummed that I keep missing things. Last weekend I missed on an opportunity to run with my coach while she was in the area. I am missing out on the strong training I had hoped for Rock N Roll Seattle. With only 3 weeks to train to get ready for Rock N Roll I am feeling a little bummed. I feel like I am just not in the LOOP lately. Crossing my fingers I will get some good feedback at doc and can pick up the pace and get back on track. Or maybe I will write a BLUES song?
