I cant believe I didn't do my Monday mix tape yesterday. It was 9:30 by the time I go home from a busy day then my support group and I just didn't have it in me!
I'm back from Florida and happy to be home! I miss my pool that I had there but I don't miss the heat. The weather here is so nice right now - almost cool in the morning - so I got back to running my hills in my 'hood right away on Monday. It was one of the best runs I've ever had and if it weren't for the fact that I had work to do, I would have kept going. I never ever ever ever thought I'd get to the point where a 5k isn't enough of a work out but I have. My calorie burn is down to 350 for that run where it used to be 500. It's guess it's not as much of a burn now that I don't carry around an extra 90 pounds :)
My heel pain in my left foot came back suddenly after being cured for almost 2 years so I called my foot doctor right away and got in for this morning. I knew I was going to be getting a shot and I was not happy but I didn't want it to interfere with my running so I put on my big girl pants and went. I thought it was funny that the doctor said "When people ask for a shot in the Plantar Fascia I know they are serious because this is the most painful shot we give in orthopedics." barf. I just laid down, did my yoga breathing and bit down on my sleeve. The cortisone takes FORever to go in but then it's almost instantly feeling better.
Headed back to yoga tonight and the rest of the week will be preparing for my longest run ever - I'm going to try for 7 miles on Saturday. If the weather stays this nice it should be totally doable and maybe even fun!
I know you all are sick of all the media blitz but here's another article that came out while I was away. http://bit.ly/152fqGc
This was for a neighborhood newspaper. I love the picture!
Have a happy healthy week everyone!
