last week was a nice and easy week. i ran every other day. it was quite relaxing to get in some extra sleep. i am finally sleeping better and my back/neck isn't so tight anymore. that should be great news for my arms tightening while competing.
i have been back in indiana and i am enjoying it, or well, i was enjoying it until today. i have had 2 really great runs around town on sunday and monday. however, today i decide to go downtown and run the canal. no biggie, love running downtown and a great change of scenery.
well, 20 minutes into the run i felt this twinge in my foot. BAM! i had to take my shoe off, thankfully i was in NIFS and out of the drizzling rain. i tried to push on the spot but nothing i couldn't feel a thing. so i stood up, and that's when i felt it. pain shot through my foot and i thought i was going to die.
i walked back to the car, a measly 20 minute run. wow, i felt pathetic. ugh.
i went to the doctor today to get my blood taken for ferritin levels. hey since i was at the doctor's i might as well go ahead and get some x-rays. so i did. nothing. nada. zip. zilch. zippo. nil. nine. NOTHING WAS WRONG!
i shouldn't be freaking out, it's only been what.....10 hours since i ran. but still, 2 knee surgeries and a stress fracture later, all i can do is be overly cautious and hesitant. this wasn't some kinda hangnail pain, no this was like ripping my heart out of my chest pain. i can't even walk without a limp.
i promise i'm not being a 2 year old,
oh and what's more, is guess what i got and now don't really get to flaunt because of my damn foot....yeah, brooks t7 racers. shut up, i know!
