What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Foot

So I took the boot off yesterday. It was a little early, but it was causing issues with my ankle. And my other foot was getting sore from overcompensating. Anywho, I didn't plan on running. But (said with a whine) it was a VERY stressful day.

So I ran half a mile - no pain while running which was great. But I woke up in the night with burning/pulling along the arch. Grrr....

I also remembered that I did planks with Lil Man siting on my back. He loves doing up/down. So I'm thinking putting the pressure on my foot probably wasn't the best for it either.

I'm not back in the boot (yet) today. I'm in my tennis shoes. I feel twinges of pain every now and then. I'm just trying to rest it as much as possible with running after Lil Man.

Fingers crossed the pain will subside today instead of increasing!
