April 15th is the last day I ran. It was 3 miles and I wasn't even going to run but I did for obvious reasons. I had PF my entire marathon training and told the hubs I would stop and let it heal! Well Its been 3 weeks now and I am ready to go!!!! PF is something that is reoccurring and I know when to stop and when to keep going.
I went out today and ran/ walked 4 miles....well the first mile I walked some...I was a smidge nervous about my foot! And guess what? It felt good! didn't hurt once! I wasn't sprinting now...and its humbling that a mere 3 weeks of not running ,you can lose so much ability.
I am also disappointed by how much weight I gained! I was doing great with weighing in everyday. It keeps you on track! For real!!!!! I was avoiding the damn scale because of my lime a rita and chip consumption! And even though I know some of my weight it just water(fingers crossed) its still disappointing to see the scale move up instead of down.
I went to my local health food store and LOVE this section!

And made some killer veg soup with wheat berries I bought there for 1.09 a pd!

I am also eating smaller and smarter...egg whites with spinach on ww muffin

I didn't just stop running and do zero exercise! I tried lifting again sat. Only exercises that doesn't require crazy wrist action! And then I PRed on my squats! 160x8! what! BEAST mode!

I felt super chunky today BUT I know in a few weeks Ill look "normal" again! I am just happy I can RUN again!

Running! YES!

    I'm sooo glad your foot is feeling better. Nothing is worse than being out with an injury. You'll be back to good in no time. And congrats on the PR with the squats. Beast mode, indeed! emoticon

    Happy days! I had two bouts of PF and it is so painful! I've found that arch supports and not doing tae kwon do as much (workouts are barefoot) helps a lot. Glad you're feeling better!
