Stinking heel!!

Monday, June 27, 2011

My heel is hurting again today...didn't get to run or walk very far. I have been putting off going to the foot doctor, I hate getting the steroid shot -- it hurts and is not healthy. But, I am getting worried that if I don't do something I am going to end up sitting on the couch again for at least a month.



Boating is promoting walking and cardio -- Yayyy!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Well, now that we have a boat we are spending A LOT of time walking back and forth to the marina!! It's about a one mile walk from our house to the marina and back. I am going to start wearing my pedometer to keep tabs on the total miles.

When it's cooler at night, I am going to jog it to get my cardio in.

Bought a Boat Today

Saturday, June 18, 2011

My husband and I bought a boat today after 3 months of boat shopping!
We both love being outside on the water. Now we will be able to travel all around the Chesapeake Bay with friends. It has a fridge and microwave so I can make/keep healthy foods on board. We will be swimming, tubing and water skiing which will help keep us fit!

Plantar Fascitiis

Friday, June 17, 2011

My plantar fascitiis is finally clearing up after I pushed it running a 5k three weeks ago! It was worth it -- I beat my time ! emoticon Anyway, this time I knew to rest it -- only walked a little over a mile each day. It was really hard not running for three weeks, but I knew the pain would drag on if I didn't take it easy.

Today I used my IFIT trainer module with my treadmill -- Yayyy! If my foot holds up today, I am going to go for a jog tomorrow. My goal is to run my next 5k in three weeks.

    Linda is right, better not to risk worse injuries.

If the choice is between your fear of not being motivated to run later, and the fact that could possibly never run again EVEN IF YOU WANTED TO later, choose to risk lack of motivation and follow through on the prescribed rest.

    Thank you both for your words of encouragement! I am just worried that if I go to long, I will stop running and have to start all over again; or not have the willpower to start again.

And yes, I love my boston terrier - she is such a sweet, great dog - and spoiled rotten too! ;) She keeps me walking!!

    I so understand taking time off to heal, but you must, and also make sure its fully healed before trying again. Nothing sucks worse then re-injuring it and causing even worse damage the second time around..
Feel better soon, there will be plenty of runs and races in your future (and WAY TO GO beating your time!!)
Have a fabulous, fun weekend! Bostons are the sweetest dogs :)) I will never forget the awesome one we had :)

    I'm sure it's hard and frustrating taking time off to heal. But it will be so much better than running to early and making the injury worse. Glad to see you are healing nicely!
