A little back-tracking to fill you in. After a week of no foot pain (still not running) I attempted to slowly start back up again, with permission from my PT. I ran Friday, and Saturday I intended on running with my group. They were going to run seven miles and I planned on 3. I didn't even make it through stretching. The pain was back, this time more beneath my foot than on the side. I went home, down but not defeated. Monday morning I made this appointment to get an X-ray and maybe some answers. The weird thing is, I walk fine on it. It used to hurt just to walk but it's not that bad anymore. Running triggered that weird pain again, though.
I will continue getting my cardio on the bike and elliptical so I don't lose any endurance. It's not the same as a good, long run, but it is what it is. I will not be defeated by this. I am a runner. I am just experiencing a minor setback. I may be down but I am not out. I may not be running the 2013 Rock N Roll Half Marathon but you better believe I'll run 2014. This dog still has alot of fight left in her (Did I just call myself a dog? As long as it's a cute breed...)
Once again, I want to say thank you for all the amazing support I've gotten from you ladies. Where would I be without you? I promise to include every single one of you in my Grammy acceptance speech.
I had a great weekend and a wonderful Monday. That's right, Monday. This weekend I'll be doing makeup for a huge Mardi Gras ball in my city and I have several women booked to beautify. This means my Saturday will be B-A-N-A-N-A-S (admit it, you just sang that like Gwen Stefani. Just me? Okay.) I am so excited Mardi Gras is early this year. It's my second favorite holiday. More on that later.
And lastly, best husband ever award goes to this man, for making me a healthy dinner on a nightly basis!
