Sore Foot Again

I've been trying to recover from the half marathon this last week, which was harder than I planned on it being. My foot wasn't really hurting, or at least I didn't notice it hurting because my hip, knees and calves were hurting. I did a 6 miles run on Friday and really it was just my calves that were hurting really bad after that. Today I did another short run. Just 30 minutes, and now my foot is hurting pretty badly again!

It's so frustrating. My run this morning was really fun too, and it didn't really hurt while I was running. It makes it that much harder to stop running, but that's what I'm going to have to do. Echo is in 2 1/2 weeks. I'd really love to be able to run for that, but I'm probably going to stop running until then. This means I have to resign myself to a super slow run. That's ok, though. I'd rather have a slow run at Echo if it give my foot time to heal so I can run at Utah Half. I hate it, but that's the plan. I'm going to work really hard on my swim and bike for the next few weeks.


  1. So sorry to hear about the foot. Sounds like some rest might help. Is it swollen at all? Wonder if it's a stress fracture or something? :( Hope it heals quickly!

  2. Thanks, Colleen. I was a little confused when i saw this comment because i just saw my name! Haha

    Anywy. It's not really swollen, and it really doesn't hurt that bad. I kind of feel like a baby, but I need it to just get better! I really really hope it's not a stress fracture. I've been there before and that was 6 weeks of no running! I did go to a dr. a few weeks ago and he said it was just bruised, but that if I ran on it while it was hurting, it wouldn't get better.
