I don't think I mentioned it but at the very end of my run on Sunday, the top of my left foot started to feel sore during the run intervals but okay when walking. I was nearly done so I just finished up the mileage. It was a little sore the rest of the day but I figured that I may have just tied that shoe a little tight. I was also wearing the Nike Lunar Eclipses because I wanted to give them another shot before deciding they weren't for me. I had worn them for the two short runs on Tuesday and Thursday. They still made my right shin a little sore and did so on Sunday, too. I think I give up on those shoes.
My foot was still a little sore yesterday so I gave it the day off. Today it was barely sore so I thought I'd give it a whirl in the shoes that had been making me feel the best...Nike Air Pegasus. Maybe there is something weird about the treadmill because even though I had been walking around the house and didn't feel anything, as soon as I started walking on the treadmill my foot started feeling sore. I attempted the first run interval, but it got even more sore so I stopped. By this time, it was too late to try to do my CLX so that will wait for the afternoon. I did ice it and took and ibuprofen.
I am thinking I will skip all the short runs this week and just do the long one on Sunday. Hopefully it will be feeling better by then. Otherwise, my whole training schedule is messed up. Boo!
I'm sad because I was really itching to run today. Oh well. At least it feels good right now. We'll see how it is once the ibuprofen has worn off. Actually after I iced it and took my shower, it felt pretty good so I'm staying positive that it will be happy by Sunday.
There should be no problem keeping up with the ST because it's pretty stationary.
They're repaving the streets in our neighborhood including ours this week starting today. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find a place sort of close by to park when I get home. It's not that I wouldn't walk farther, but walking around at 5am is a little sketchy sometimes. I wish they had done this when we were on vacation, but it never seems to work out that way.
Enough ranting. On a happier note, it's Wednesday!! Halfway through the week is always a good thing. We'll be having some whole wheat pasta and turkey meatballs for dinner...comfort food and healthy, too.
I hope you are all having a great week!! Keep up the good work :-)
