More of the same.
The good news is that my doctor appointment is less than a week away! Tuesday at 9:15. 5 more days!!!
More good news is that I have no pain or soreness in my foot walking around as normal. I haven't worn the boot in over a week. My boot-induced shin bruise is healing nicely. I no longer have sore hips and legs at the end of the day from the boot.
...Thus I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tempted to do the 5k race on Saturday.
I am a little sad to think of how much fitness I have lost since June 15. A month. Gulp.
I am a little sad to think of how much habit I have lost. I worked very hard to instill the 4 days a week running habit among working full-time and having two little kids. It became second nature to head out for a run on my run days. I am hopeful that it won't be too big of a challenge to get back to that.
...And I am feeling a little recharged after a month off.
My wallet is a little thinner than a month ago. Those who can't run apparently buy running-related products.
I am hopeful that outside of this Saturday, my race schedule for the rest of the year can remain unchanged:
July 28: 5K Race for the Bacon with Oiselle WI crew
Sept 17: 8K for Children's Hospital of WI
Nov 6: Milwaukee Running Festival Half-Marathon
I think I have to give up PRing again in the 5k. Let that go. That is hard for me as I really wanted to get closer to 18:00 in 2016. Focus on the process, right??
Ok. That's all of my random thoughts for now. Back to work.
