How is halfway through June? I am so in denial.
I finally had my CT scan on Monday for my ever present side pain and I was glad to finally get that completed. Scheduling it for the afternoon wasn’t too bright but I made it work.
Later in the week I felt like I was run over by the tired truck. I was so damn tired from Wednesday on and I couldn’t figure out why. I fell asleep on my lunch Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and took a nap on Saturday. Everyone around me seems to sick with something so maybe I was fighting a bug or something? I don’t know.
Then there was my foot but more on that below.
Monday- 3.41 miles Maybe heading out for a run after a day of fasting and drinking a ton of barium wasn’t a good idea. Combine that with 95* weather and while this run started out ok, things turned south on me at the halfway point and my stomach let me know that I needed to to back at my car sooner rather than later but could I please not run to get there? 😂
Wednesday- Rest I was planning on running but then the brother offered to take the family to dinner so food won out.
Thursday- 2 miles This was not the plan for this run. However a little over a mile in, I landed wrong on my left foot and felt a shooting pain. I stopped, walked but it felt ok so I adjusted my shoelaces and my shoe and ran on. Only to pull up short less than 1/2 mile later by the same stabbing pain in my foot. And this time it didn’t go away. I turned around and hobbled back to my car.
Friday- Rest I never run on Friday’s but I really wanted to make sure to take it easy on my foot. The odd thing was that it didn’t feel horrible when I woke up or throughout the day.
Saturday- Rest Once again, I was resting the foot but it really did feel ok. I actually spent the morning helping my brother buy a new truck. When you’ve bought as many cars as I have, you get called in for reinforcement. Well that and your resting bitch face. 😛 However it’s hard to be as helpful as possible when the Toyota dealership gets a shipment in the night before and one of those trucks happens to be the exact truck your brother was eyeing on the Toyota website right down to the color. They were literally pulling the plastic off and he looked like a kid in a candy shop. Poker face! Poker face!
Sunday- 3.1 miles Not the long run that I hoped for. As soon as I put on running shoes, I knew my foot wasn’t happy. What gives?! My foot had felt fine until then. Grrr. I still headed out for a run hoping that it would ease up. I tried to run nice and easy and just focus on my form and sometimes it worked. Mostly, not so much and then I landed in a pothole. I kept the run short and on the slower side so as not to aggravate the foot any more.
8.56 milesfor the week. I didn’t think I could run less than last week but I did. Boo to landing wrong.
