Remember how I said the other day that my right foot started hurting on the treadmill? It started hurting again during this morning’s run but it eventually started feeling better by the end. However, when I went to leave for class and it hurt to walk. Not good.
My mom is helping me set up an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon through the doctors office she went to back when she had a stress fracture. They don’t have anything available until Monday though.
This is so hard to figure out what to do. I don’t want to damage it further; however, I don’t want to miss the race on Saturday. At least I’ll be able to go to the doctor before the 8 mile race I have planned for April 3rd.
Right now, I barely feel any pain at all when I walk. I’m taking that as a good sign.
I’m not going to make a decision about this weekend right now. I think I’m going to do a little more research about what could be causing this before I decide.
My mind automatically goes to “stress fracture,” but I’m not a doctor. Hopefully, it’s something simple and easy to fix.
Let’s jump into a happier topic:
I’m very happy with my splits from this morning’s run
Mile 1: 9:00
Mile 2: 9:35
Mile 3: 9:41
Mile 4: 9:35
Mile 5: 9:25
& 0.02 miles: 7:07 pace
Distance: 5.02 miles
Time: 47:25 min:sec
Avg. Pace: 9:27
Then my foot started hurting… 😦
Class was uneventful.
Cheesy, carby, deliciousness.
