I wish I was sitting here writing about how amazing my last 10 miler felt, and how stoked I am to be running in a few days but this is the reality…. it hurt. Here is were my story began…. 2 wks ago before My SI Half I bought these new shoes that I was in love with. Race day I put them on… I hated them… I am a stability girl, and as far as these shoes were concerned (while very pretty), they were very unstable and left right ankle with sharp pains… I shook it off.
My new run was on the treadmill… and before I even left my house to head to the gym… I was limping around my house….I got to the gym and by mile 2, I was feeling better.
Then came Sunday…From the moment I started the run I felt like hell. I also always have this theory that I feel better if I run the day before a long run or race and I didn’t… so I thought ok, it’s just going to take a few miles. Well by mile 7 I was limping and by mile 9 I could feel a blister forming on the bottom of my left foot. Needless to say, I finished it, but it was not pretty.
I immediately emailed my coach and he told me I had two choices… wear the sneakers I had been training in all along or go get new ones because I still had time to break them in… so… that is what I did tonight.. I went to Fleet Feet and got my new kicks and I’m hoping that they will be the ones that I wear to Boston… if not I will just still to what I have been training in….but they are quite pretty:)
How are my Boston friends enjoying the taper?
Can anybody recommend a good sushi spot in Boston?
Is there anything that I MUST do?
