Better days ahead

Foot pain and tight hamstrings. Sick fussy baby and never ending demands from my 3-yr old. Sleepless nights. Restless days. Tears and more tears. This was my emotional roller coaster week.

To top it off, while I was running additional miles after my interval workout with the track club, the discomfort in my right foot got worse to the point where I had to stop and walk. It didn’t bother me during the 800 intervals but I must have pushed myself too hard since my split times were faster than any of my previous ones.  So I took two days off, ran 4 easy miles on Friday wishing my foot would stop bothering me, yet it still did.  Saturday was a scheduled 11-mile long run but I made a smart decision to skip and hit the elliptical and bike instead.  I plan to stay off my feet, stretch, foam roll, ice, cross-train and pray I can resume my training next week. Only at week 2 of training and already hurt.  Aaaarrggghhh!!!!  However, I can’t be completely discouraged since  it is only week 2 so I still have enough time to prepare for NY and be ready for it.

On a positive note, baby Iz is no longer sick and smiling again. Eyva managed to make her laugh and hearing them giggle together sent me back to my happy place.  My day is looking better already!…
