Stupid Heel, Pre-Breakfast, Core, Bulls Eye
Happy Friday! Today I present to you some of my favorites, and not so favorites, of the week. Let’s start with the bad and end with the good…
Before Gasparilla, I broke in a new pair of shoes for the race. Granted, I only put 10 miles on them, but they are the same shoes I’ve worn for years and have never had a problem.
Not sure if it’s the shoes or something else, but ever since the race, my left heel has been bothering me. It doesn’t hurt when I’m barefoot or in sandals, but even just walking around the house in my shoes puts pressure on it and it hurts.
I ran on Tuesday and it hurt (not painful, but more uncomfortable than it should be) for the first .25 miles and then felt OK… until I stopped. Not cool. I ended up walking Riley this week with the heel cup pushed down so it could heal.
This really pisses me off and puts me in a crappy mood because in a few weeks, when I start injections to get preggers, I won’t be able to run or workout. Not to mention, I was going to meet up with Stephanie again this weekend for a run.
I really wanted to get as much running in as I could before starting the whole pregnancy thing and this has really derailed that plan. I’ve pushed through injuries one too many times and know I need to play it smart and let this things heal. UGH!!! OK. Enough of the pity party. Moving onto the positives…
So the above happened for pre-breakfast on Thursday. I woke up extra hungry and polished off half an avocado before heading to work.
I came across this Dirty Dozen Core Routine for Runners and wanted to pass it along.
A co-worker of mine had a bunch of these Bulls Eyes candies at her desk. I took a few because they remind me of my childhood summers when we’d go to North Carolina. I love reminiscing and these certainly brought back good memories. And yes, my sister is in my phone as Shalane- her real name is Kristin. And I am Kara. It’s our thing.
And lastly, the website Playback.fm will tell you what song was #1 on the day you were born. Pretty neat!
