Blues

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?

Sending hugs your way!!!

I know that feeling of feeling out of the loop. I promise you things will come back around...maybe even better than you thought! I hope your trip to the dr. goes well!! I'm sure part of it is this beautiful weather and wanting to be out in it.

Hang in there! It is hard to have to rest from something you love so much, but sometimes our bodies tell us when true rest is needed.

It stinks, no getting around it. Keep your chin up--there will be a light at the end of the tunnel before long!

Injuries are the WORST...but it will get better from here. I once had to take off 4.5 months after a stress fracture in my pelvis, it was VERY hard on me.

I hope your trip to the MD goes well tomorrow, good luck!

Harmony- get to the doctor!!! Have you been yet? Hang in there.

I am so sorry your foot is still hurting. It definitely sounds like something you need to see a doctor for and I am praying it isn't anything major and will heal quickly.

As far as what you are "supposed" to do, unless a doctor tells you otherwise, I would just listen to your body and go with what feels good. Hugs!

So sorry... It is HARD to run with pain and try to get over injury without getting "blue". Hope the DR goes well. Good Luck

Sorry that you are feeling bummed. Good news that you were able to run a bit and get out to enjoy the weather. I hope you get GOOD NEWS from the doc.

I will try to rustle up a crazy hair pic to cheer you up soon!

Gosh gang it. I'm sorry your foot is being poopy. But, so glad you could enjoy a weekend run in this weather. Let me know if your foot feels better and we could maybe meet up for a joggy-jog?!!
