The last 3 Mondays (today included) have been the start of a new week in my running program. I hae never really enjoyed running but now I like it. It makes me tired and feel good, but also keeps me happy. In the words of
On Saturday evening I went to the gym and my foot started to bother me. It was bad, it was tolerable. The corpsman in me asked how bad it was on a scale of 1-10. It was maybe a 2-3. It was on the back portion of my arch on my left foot. Well, I worked through it (go me!) and dealt with it all day yesterday. Today felt the same so I went ahead, put on my running shoes and started Week 3 of my running program.
BAD IDEA! I lasted about 10 minutes before the pain just became awful. I had to stop running and just walked. I finished out my 20 minutes, quickly grabbed CJ and hobbled out to my car. I wish I could just cut off my foot right now. It really hurts :(
So now, I have my first running injury as a civilian. I had my fair share while in the Navy (shin splints, stress fractures...all that fun stuff). I am contemplating if my body is ready for running. I have a couple days to think about it. If not, it's back to the elliptical I go.
In more exciting news...I left CJ with my dad for about 1 1/2 hours on Saturday evening so I could go to the gym. When I got home, CJ came running to the door screaming "MOMMY!". He knocked me over with a huge hug and said "I missed my mommy very much". I love being a mom...
