The week started off iffy and ended exciting. I took a full week off from running but kept active with swimming and a little bit of biking. On Thursday, I attempted an easy run at night and it wasn’t so bad. 8 hours later, I headed over to my ART appointment. I was looking forward to the pain this time because I knew that all the rest I gave my foot helped and so all that was left to do was get all that junk out of there! Doc suggested continuing to take it easy until my next appointment in two weeks. Incorporating swimming in between run days was also suggested. Last night, my run finally (and I mean it this time!) felt normal. As long as I don’t do anything stupid with intensity, I should be good to go! I’ll write about the elusive “I’m back” run this upcoming week!
