Endorphins, a Mixed Blessing
Thursday, June 13, 2013
Monday when I ran it felt so good. It had to be an endorphin rush. A few minutes after I was done, though, the second toe on my left foot started throbbing. I did not feel any problem at all during the run. If it wasn't for the endorphins I probably would have felt it and fixed it. I suppose without the endorphins few of us would want to run, though! I messed up. That is the toe nail that turned black after my January 2011 10K. The toe nail had grown out and looked almost normal, just a little thick. I believe it was a little too long and a little too rough and rubbed on my shoe and caught on my sock, causing the problem. I ran again today and again it really didn't bother me during the run, but now it looks and feels like I have a blister under my toe nail. Oh, well, this too will pass. It really is a little, little problem and one I don't think will interfere with running.
On a very positive note, my glute and back issue seems much better after my sports massage therapy session yesterday.
And another very positive note, we had a great local SparkTeam dinner this eve at a seafood restaurant I'd never been to before, but definitely will go to again. The company was fantastic. We enjoyed the food and the people very much.
