Yikes! It’s been 8 months since my last post. So many wonderful things have happened since then in other aspects of my life, that my running has fallen to the wayside. However, this blog isn’t just about my running successes. I aim to provide a completely honest, no-strings-attached record of my running journey – from the proud moments to the hard-to-swallow losses, and even my boring routines that upon repeating enough times hopefully lead to success.
So that’s my long-winded way of saying sorry. Sorry for the silence and pinky promise to never do it again. Friends forever?
To sum things up, I’ve gotten a new job (hooray!) and developed plantar fasciitis (boo). It’s been very frustrating as I’ve tried icing, stretching, jogging, running, rolling, wearing orthotics, and even drinking cherry juice concentrate. Apparently, it’s supposed to help.
I’ve been out of commission and missing more races than I like to even think about. I can’t help it. Each race is another missed opportunity to qualify for the trials. I know, I know. I need to be patient and do what’s best for my body. And if it’s telling me to rest, then I need to rest. No point in training when you’re not fully recovered. Patience!
