I gave myself some time off to recover from running since January but when I started to run again the pain that I'd had in my foot/ankle in Sonoma came back, with a vengeance. I went to see a podiatrist, fearing that I'd really injured something, and he told me he thought that I had the beginnings of a stress fracture. He told me I needed 2-3 weeks of rest. Except, I was still training for my fall half marathon/goal race for the year. I asked what I could do and he suggested swimming...
Diane came to my rescue. She told me about a gym that had indoor pools and had a program for people who needed to join for medical reasons. So, I joined. After my first visit I knew I wanted to join for the winter! I've been working some aquatic fitness classes into my schedule and on the days that I can't get to a class I run in the lap pool.
My weight has fluctuated but has been within reason. I struggled after the half in July because I was still eating like I was running 4 days a week! It took me awhile to get that under control but I suppose that's just a new lesson to learn.
So, what's been happening with you? Catch me up on everything!
