Boy do I have some catching up to do!! Let's see, where to start?
I am currently on Week 7 of my training...it actually feels like it's been longer then that. Last week was supposed to be a 12 mile long run but we ran into a couple of snags and it did not happen. In looking back at this, I am thinking it was a good thing. It gave my ankles and feet a chance to rest before getting back into it. So this week's long run will be 12 miles. I am still having some pain in my foot but am still hopeful to get rid of this problem. Still lots of stretching, icing, and rolling.
I think another reason why it was a good thing we missed our long run is because I need to remember that it's ok to miss a run every now and then. I get it stuck in my head that I have to do every single run and that it would be horrible to miss any.
So another thing that has happened it is I bought a new bikini! I tell you I walked around and around the store with that bikini in my hand and had to force myself to get to the check out. It was a pretty big step for me. Hey, I work out very hard and pretty religiously so why shouldn't I show off my bod a bit?! I will spare you all the strange selfie....I have some work to do on some tan lines.
Now to resist the cheesecake that is sitting in my fridge...wish me luck!
