Let’s back up 11 weeks and 2 days. That was the last time I ran. I went to marathon practice even though my foot was in serious pain and my shin hurt with every step. My marathon was in view, I was supposed to have one more long run and then it was taper time.… Continue reading First Run After 11 Weeks and 2 Days!
Oh Tuesday. Tuesday is turning out to be the longest swim of the week. I dragged myself out of bed and made it to the gym. It was still warm out at this point in the week so I wasn’t miserable dragging my butt into the cold pool. I had 4,400 yards to get through.… Continue reading Ironman Training Day #9 & #10
Sunday was supposed to be the day of my first marathon! I had already processed that it wasn’t happening so it wasn’t a terrible day. The girl who bought my bib told me she qualified for Boston. I was happy for her! She was so sweet and kind for reaching out to me. I am… Continue reading A Wedding and a 5:45a.m. CompuTrainer Class

On Thursday I worked half a day and then went to get my bone scan. I had an appointment at 12:45p.m. I was called right… Continue reading Bone scan, mountain bikes, a movie, and the weekend!
I had an appointment with my orthopedic doctor yesterday. I love my doctor and his office. The appointments are always quick and efficient. I waited probably ten minutes and then was called for my appointment. Doctor did x-rays right away. There was nothing alarming on my tibia, but there was a little something (not sure… Continue reading Registration Transfered
I am finally getting a chance to sit down and write about the rest of my week and weekend. By Friday my foot was still hurting. It felt a little better, but still a lot of pain when walking barefoot. My wedges gave me relief, but that’s about it. I have also had some pretty… Continue reading Stubborn and Stupid are First Cousins
I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog. I am a huge fan of twenty-five plus healthy living and fitness related blogs. I have been on Instagram for a while and have “met” a lot of great people. My cousin actually told me that I should start a blog so that I can… Continue reading Foot Strain and My First Post!
