Huh? What’s she talking about? I promise, I’m not crazy. I just need to explain myself here.
On Saturday, May 10, I will be running the VT Respite House 5k Jiggety Jog in memory of my Grandmother. Then, on Thursday, May 15, I will be running in the Vermont Corporate Cup Challenge and State Agency Race with some of my coworkers. It’s an annual 5k run/walk event that takes place in Montpelier, the state capital, and starts right on the statehouse lawn.
So, you see, in two weeks, I will be running two 5ks in the same week. Got it? Good 🙂
That is, of course, if my foot is healed by then. It’s much better today than it was yesterday. After work Ben and I went to the gym and did some upper body work, and then I went home and literally put my feet up. I kept my foot elevated on a nice cushy pillow and relaxed all night. I won’t be running tonight, and I plan to get properly fitted with some new running shoes before attempting another long run. The pain is not at all sharp, so I’m assuming it’s just a muscular issue. It’s not my heel, so I’m fairly certain it’s not plantar fasciitis. If it’s not fully better in a couple of days I’ll head to the doctor, because I really don’t want to screw up my training with a serious injury.
Have you ever had a running-related injury? How do you determine when it’s time to see the doctor?
