So I’m still struggling with a very unhappy left foot. I tried to get my planned 4 miles in Sunday but after 500 metres I had to stop and walk home. Crying because of the pain. So I’m banned from running, whether I want to or not. And trust me, I DO NOT want to rest from running. But as we have the big move coming up (very soon) I guess I’ll be fine. Fine, not sane.
I won a pair of ProCompression socks over at Amalia’s blog in the start of last week and they arrived yesterday. Believe me when I say I’m even more bummed about not getting to run now when I have these happy socks to try out on my runs.
I’ve been focusing on upper body strength instead of running and yes, it feels good. My arms, back, shoulders and abs are absolutely on fire after today’s 50 minute workout at home in our little.. hm, walk in closet. It’s far from as satisfying as lacing up the shoes and go out for a run, but it still gives me energy and makes me feel like I’ve done SOMETHING to keep my body and soul in working order.
Otherwise, the house is a mess and I can’t wait to be done with the whole move thing. AND of course, I’m hoping I’ll get to go out running once this is all over. Let’s cross our fingers?
