The first mile or two hurt yesterday but then once my foot was warmed up, it felt fine. I’m having a bit of pain in my right foot too but I don’t notice it compared to my left foot when it is hurting. My half marathon (it has been over two years since I last raced a half marathon) is ten days away, and yesterday’s run made me feel like it is still going to happen. Injury scares/time away sure makes you even more grateful to be able to run.
Emilee is taking some time off because of her IT Band:( so it was just me and a podcast yesterday.
It happened. The gloves are out, and I’m trying not to be emotional about it;).
If it is under 50 degrees, I will have gloves on my hands because I cannot handle cold fingers. These gloves are my 30-50 degree weather gloves, and they are light, breathable, and do an excellent job keeping my hands warm.
We had the car seat heaters on and hot chocolate with our breakfast.
We were then off for a few errands.
Skye has seen me do my PF stretches so many times now (7 times yesterday wahoo) that she is now copying me.
We were very excited to see Dr. Bennett. He has fixed many imbalances and running aches and pains for me over the last eight years of going to him. He said that the muscles that support my arch started to fail. My foot got jammed up and started pulling on the plantar fascia that is attached to the heel. The solution is to unjam the feet and restore/reactivate the muscles of the arch. There are times when the injury has gone on so long that the inflammation takes time to resolve and heal. I’ll be going back again next week to see him too. He also wants me to be wearing thick-soled running shoes and walking on grass barefoot each day for 10 minutes.
Skye then had sports conditioning, and Andrew was able to come to watch too. She REALLY winds up for that swing.
80% of my texts with Andrew are about places we want to go and try for food or memes… Really deep conversations via text ha. Yesterday we went to one of those places we’ve been texting about—> Via 313. It was my first time trying Detroit-style pizza, and I now feel like it is my favorite.
We told them that it was our first time going there, and they brought out free dessert to us for coming in.
Beck had another haircut. Andrew and I always say how nice it is to make whatever decisions we want with Skye and Beck ha… There are more people involved when it comes to decisions with Brooke and Knox.
There were SO many amazing plantar fasciitis tips in the comments yesterday. I hope you know how much that means to me. You guys are always there to help. If you are having problems with your feet, read through these comments.
Michelle shared this video with me, and I did it last night. I needed this.
Did you see that Shalane announced she will be running the 6 World Marathon Majors in seven weeks? Reading her caption to this post gave me goosebumps:
Who will be running any of the 6 World Marathon Majors this fall? If you could choose one to be entered into this year… Which would you choose?
-I want to join Shalane in this goal… wouldn’t that be amazing?
At what temperature do you start wearing gloves?
In your opinion, what is the #1 type of pizza style?
-I am a big believer in Detroit-Style now.
GPS watches in cold water—> do you wear them over or under your sleeves/jackets?
