Last night I got my swimming things and my running things ready to go for this morning. My foot was still a little sore, but I was hopeful that it would be ok in the morning so I could still do my 3 miles. Unfortunately, it seemed even more sore in the morning, but I still brought my running clothes to the gym for some reason.
I did speed work in the pool: 16 x 50.
By the time I got done, it was time to get home and get the kids to school. I went home, with my sore foot, still thinking I might try to run. Then I just took a few running steps, and knew it wasn't possible. It's weird because my foot's ok standing around, and not too bad walking, but it's when I take that running step onto the ball of my foot, it really hurts!
So I made a doctor appointment to get it looked at tomorrow. I really, really, really hope he just tells me it's bruised or something and that it will be ok to run on by next Saturday. I've been feeling pretty depressed about all day. I know it's not a big deal, but it's frustrating that I missed this race last year, and now I might have to miss it this year. Arg!
So, this evening I took a nap instead of making dinner, then sat and read while Mindy was at ballet, and had to make a treat when I got home.
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
Combine sugar, butter, milk and cocoa in a sauce pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Boil for 1 minute then remove from heat and add salt, vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and chill for at least 1 hour.
Send me good vibes that my doctor's appointment will go well tomorrow!
