This week I came off a week of rest. I am in my 9th week of training for the Houston Half. There isn’t a lot to tell about this week, as I spent it mostly resting. However, I am happy to report my foot is on the mend… and feeling so much better!!
I decided to play it safe for a few days and listen to my body. It was tough, but necessary. I started doing my foot stretching and strengthening exercises that I had stopped after my foot had started feeling better in the spring. I will continue to do them, as I’ve determined pre-hab beats re-hab.
Here’s how my week shook out:
Sunday – Rest
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Easy 3 miler with Anam. She was so excited to go, I was happy to have her for company (I knew she would keep me at an easy pace)!
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – Rest
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Easy 5 miles. Midway through this run, I took a nose dive to the pavement. The hubs has come up with a “running kit” for me, which includes knee pads, a helmet, and a 12-pack of little mermaid bandaids.
Total miles = 8
