I'm not sure where the time has gone since my last entry?
I ran the "Recover from the Holidays FA 50K" on January 2nd, ran 22 miles of the loops. Had a great time. My planters fasciitis was killing me at the end and it was the beginning of a bad bout of arch pain.
Kept up the trail running--about once a week--at a local park and continued running my marathon training program for Pittsburgh. My left foot kept ticking away until I decided to take a week off!
Yesterday I ran the "Get Together 15K" and had a blast. It was my first run in a week and led to MAJOR arch pain last night. I hydrated, stretched, iced, and stretched some more in hopes I would be able to meet up with the Elite Runner Trail Running Team (ERTR) this morning for a 4 mile trail loop.
After the first 4 mile loop, I decided that I was feeling good and it was time to end today's run! More stretching, hydrating, and icing throughout the day and I think I'm making some progress!
I WILL SURVIVE THIS!
Stay safe, keep your soles to the ground, and keep moving forward!
