Run this morning felt great! I even went a little faster than I had planned just because I felt like it. I definitely have my energy back and my muscles seem to be recovered from the half marathon on Saturday. The one problem I have is a sore toe. The second toe on my left foot -- the same one that has bothered me before -- is just a bit sore. I iced it. Not sure if I should "buddy tape" it to the next toe or not. The sorest spot is closer to the joint than the nail, but the nail looks a little purple, just a shade darker than the other toes.
I didn't watch my eating very closely the week before the half marathon and purposely ate a lot of carbs. This morning my weight was 128.4, 2.4 over my target, but still within range. Hope to bring it down a bit this week before I start getting ready for the St Pete Women's Half Marathon on November 24th. That one I'm running in costume with ONEKIDSMOM and one of her relatives who is running her first HM. I expect to stay with them and I don't expect it to be too fast, but a lot of fun!! Fingers are crossed that the toe won't be a problem.
