I had some great runs this week! (Until Saturday)
Wednesday: A track workout to celebrate National running day! 8 miles total.
Wednesday night: 3 miles with my new running friend Shannon!!
Thursday:Hills!! I watched McFarland USA on National Running Day and this quote stuck in my head. That movie is SO good & i highly recommend it for some good old Run-Spiration!
Friday: Tempo run with my new friend! It was a nice cool morning and we had a terrific run.
Saturday: 16 miles in 2:08…I was about 4 minutes slower than I thought I would be because my stupid left foot started hurting out of nowhere. I had to stop about 10 times and massage my foot/take off my shoe and rub the top of it. It is SO weird. I would have called for a ride home, but I was so far away that I felt guilty asking anyone to interrupt their Saturday and come to get me. (The hubs was at work) . My shoes are new-60 miles including Saturday’s run. (Pureflow 2s) it’s really odd that the 2s did this to my foot-I wore a pair of 3s that caused a pain in the same foot -however I haven’t worn them since that particular run. I’ve probably had 5(?) pairs of Pureflow 2s and it has never happened. It feels like a pulled muscle from my big toe to the start of my ankle, it’s so weird. I’m partly blaming this one pair of work shoes that I wear all the time. I’ve been icing it and taking Advil…it still hurts. I am not happy!!!! I took Sunday off from running in the hopes of letting it rest/heal…hopefully a few days of no running will make it A-Ok. (I HATE DOCTORS, and will probably go *only* if it is 200% necessary )
40.1 miles, 7:48 avg pace.
The rest of my weekend was relaxing and fun…
A trip to Bass Pro Shops for my husband…
Mr Mac’s Mac & Cheese in Manchester, NH….I got the buffalo chicken mac & cheese, my husband had chicken bacon ranch…BOTH were amazing!!! If you’re ever in the area, you NEED to check it out!
Sunday Funday with my favorites! This girl: She is the funniest kid ever and she happens to be my niece!! I am a lucky auntie!!!
This guy. I like him.❤️❤️❤️
She is the funniest niece EVER!
Look at those legs!!
And finally….icing my foot as we drank Sangria!
I hope you had a great weekend!
Anybody ever have a random foot pain like this? What’d you do?
