Last week I wrote about a pain in my foot. I blamed it on my shoes. My coach told me it was tight calves and told me to make sure I stretched and foam rolled. I also started running again in my Brooks Levitate 1. They feel so soft and comfortable.
Monday was 3 miles and on Tuesday it was 1 mile. It was all I could handle both days. I also mentioned being more tired than usual and sneezing a lot. I sent a message to my doctor asking about an allergy test but she has not written back. I went to Target and bought the store brand of Claritin. I took one last night but today still sneezed but not as much as before.
I was supposed to run Wednesday but take a guess as to why I didn’t? I thought I could do it after school but I stayed till about 5:30 working on a project and came home for dinner and to rest. I ended up running the next day and it felt great.
2 miles on Friday was the perfect distance to start off the weekend. I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night and came back to Mateo getting comfortable on my bed. 🙂 So cool seeing all of the Christmas decorations.
Saturday was 7 miles on my calendar but I woke up with an achy body. I thought I had a fever so I took a Tylenol and stayed on the couch till about noon. Then my mother and I did some errands followed by a late lunch. We came home and I took a nap!
My foot is feeling much better. The top of it is no longer tender. Even my plantar doesn’t hurt as much. These running injuries suck but I am so happy that so far I am feeling better.
This morning I took Mateo to PAWS to be neutered. I picked him up at 4pm and he is doing fine. I hope my little baby isn’t in too much pain.
Less than 2 weeks to go till Winter Break? Yes, I am EXCITED!!
This week was not great running wise but sometimes that is how it is. Hopefully next week is better. I decided not to run the Kiawah Half Marathon. I am definitely not ready for it and don’t want to go undertrained like I did for the Detroit Half Marathon I did in October.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
