Zero running but some lifting is happening over here… I’m not even sure who I am anymore;) The cortisone shot helped my foot to feel normal again, but my doctor told me not to run for two weeks, so I won’t run for at least two weeks and I’ll continue to do the things he gave me the okay to do!
The podiatrist spent 54 minutes with us… Fifty-four minutes of listening to every detail of my history, checking out my foot/calf/achilles, x-rays, giving me recommendations on what things I can do etc. He was so incredibly helpful and gave me an excellent plan of attack. He really thinks that the culprit to my plantar fasciitis problems are these shoes. I’ve worn these for marathons in the past and never had a problem, but I hadn’t worn them much after I had Beck and then (even though I had been loving the Hyperion Tempo for my workouts) randomly decided to wear the old Hyperions for my track workout (+ a track workout that was a little much for where I was at too)… and that is right when the pain started.
Goodbye to the type of racing shoes that I have used and loved over the years; we have a lot of great memories together. I’m not sure if it was pregnancy or aging, but my feet need more support now.
A big highlight from the weekend was spending a bit of time in the mountains with Brooke. The kids and Andrew will be the only ones doing current running pictures here for a bit of time;).
Being in nature with Brooke is the best because she points out the little things that I don’t usually notice. Noticing the small stuff makes everything better.
Andrew left early for work, and Brooke snuck in my bed one morning.
My sister’s husband was working all weekend too so we joined mom forces with our kids.
Skye loved all of the cousin time.
And my podiatrist recommends that I do the runner’s stretch as much as possible throughout the day.
Andrew worked a bunch and the kids were thrilled to see him again.
SO excited to watch Boston today. The last time I was there, I smiled for 26.2 miles non-stop, and my cheeks were sore for days.
In 2015 I definitely didn’t smile very much though;)
2019 Boston was in my top 3 favorite races, ever!
Share any highlights from the weekend?!
Who is watching Boston today? Who is at Boston cheering?
Have you figured out anything that has caused you an injury in the past?
Hot chocolate or apple cider (or other delicious drink at this time of year)?
