The blog streak was REALLY helping me, so now that I'm back from girls camp and had a day to recover, I'm bringing it back.
Young Women's camp was soooooooo wonderful... but it was also stressful and I really just had to eat what food was provided, and I also just went with the flow on some camp treats.
One of the other leaders made fresh homemade donuts for the girls AT CAMP. How often do you have the chance to indulge in something like that? For ME... that would be NEVER. So I partook of those. Also smores. It's camping. So yes. Smores.
I tried to eat healthy with what food was provided at the meals, though - they did a decent job of trying to provide good food, too.
I also ran all but one day of camp, and although the mileage was half of what I wanted total for last week, considering I was recovering from a realllly tough half marathon, and the runs at camp were very challenging (hello, it's the country in Vermont, meaning hillshillshills..).
So I was ready to run this morning, come downstairs and find a puddle of dog pee that has soaked into the bottom of my sleeping bag roll. :( WAhhh. So I was cleaning and I'm still working on laundering that beast. I'm going to train Roscoe to ring a bell for us to let him out because right now he just goes silently to the door... which is fine when we're in the room, but at night we have to notice him leaving the bed and apparently we didn't notice last night. I think we're gonna get a gate for the bedroom door, and I'll put the bells there at night, and when we're home I'll put em on the back door.
So anyway, I think I'm gonna switch a couple of my mileage days - today was going to be 5, but since I didn't get out in the morning, I'll look for a quick 3 later on.
Some ST and laundry will be the main order of the day.
Also I believe I've diagnosed some pain I've been having intermittently in the ball of my foot: metatarsalgia. Yeah that is really just a word describing pain in the metatarsals. hahahaha. But it seems to describe it pretty well and I don't believe I have a stress fracture and it only hurts sometimes while running so I'm still going to try to train through it just like I did with the PF.
