Not So Good

My second test run went pretty crappy, truth be told. The pain I felt was undoubtedly plantar fasciitis related, as opposed to the area being bruised from the shot. And the pain was pretty bad, enough to where I think it was affecting my gate.

It's still early on, and I can only hope today was a bad day. If all of them are going to be like this, I might have to do some serious reevaluating of everything. But I'll give it some more time and try to have more patience.

Mark asked if I was still going to give cross training a go. Answer is yes. I'll probably join a gym soon.

Ran 3.0 miles @ 8:21/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 152/168
Paved roads.
Mostly flat.
Mid-teens, overcast.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.

Hang in there Jamie - I have the strong feeling this is a temporary thing. I sure know what it's like to be out of the game, but this won't be permanent!

Don't get discouraged, patience is a virtue. All things considered adding some cross training could open up a whole new world to you. Chin up!
