Weekend Update

So from my voicepost, you know that I did run on Saturday morning. I was a decent run to say the least. My foot was bothersome when I thought about it. The last two miles, when I was only concerned about the hills in my subdivision, I didn't even think about my foot. Now, with that said… it hurt most of Saturday and really bad on Sunday, part of it – more on that in a bit.

Now with the run on Saturday, it was a total of 12 miles with a total run time of 1:52:41. The splits are listed below and if you take into consideration miles 9 and 12, my run is right around 9 min miles. Mile 8 was when I stopped to eat my Carb-boom and record my voicepost and I actually did stop. There's a trash can there and so I wanted to eat and drink what I needed and then not have to carry the trash around. Sad thing is that they cleared a BUNCH of trees right next to the greenway and I almost missed the entrance because it was so different! The last mile, of course, is that mile that is in my subdivision. I really should see how much of that last mile is uphill… it would be MOST of it. I took a Pro-Boom recovery gel afterwards and was NOT sore at all despite my pace. I am thinking those things are cool! Because I am recovering from a cold-illness-general yuckiness I did need a small nap and I think I found one while Eric was playing with who-knows-what… I was out for 10-15 minutes.

On Sunday, there has to be something for the Power of Prayer. At our Sunday School Class, Jen brought up that I was running a marathon soon and that my foot was a little under the weather. Then in Sunday Morning Light, I put down my foot on the prayer request card. During the worship, I was stretching my foot in such a way that it hurt! I was even limping some on Sunday. I didn't get a chance to ice my foot because Ryan wanted to eat my ice block and was getting upset when I didn't give it to him. Dude, it's freakin' cold! Of course, we think he is teething, so it might be something he would LOVE to have. When I woke up today, things were almost fine with my foot. Not at all tender or even sore. I have to stretch it very awkwardly to feel any residual pain and this concerns me. My podiatrist appointment is on Thursday, I don't want it feeling better, I would rather it be sore and he be able to better assess what the deal is with my foot. So, we will see. I'll still go I guess… I am sure that he'll recommend orthotics for my shoes… those are about $400 bucks… when is Christmas again?

So, here are the split times for my run on Saturday. Today was a rest day and I will probably swim tomorrow. With it being so nice, they are having outdoor swimming. I do need to figure out how to be this cold though!

I am working on an Intergalactic Plant3rry logo… hopefully will be done soon…
