Yep, It was the right decision

After I wrote my post yesterday my foot miraculously felt better. Go figure, right?

Last night it felt great.

And this morning it felt great.

So I went for an easy 3 mile run.

It didn't feel so great when I was running and definitely didn't feel great when I stopped.

It still doesn't feel great right now.

Bummer.

Not crying over it. I feel better about yesterday's decision, because I IMMEDIATELY felt the guilt and regret over the decision.

Basically I can't run. Massage helps. But it doesn't cure it.

Fortunately I have an appointment with the Doctor when I return from Vacation, and I will go from there. So NO RUNNING next week!

Not crying over this. Just stating the facts. I have accepted my current fate with the running Gods and I am SO looking forward to getting back onto the bike and into the pool in a few weeks.

I am going computer-less for 9 days starting tomorrow. I am going off the juice here folks! So have some great training and racing and I will catch back up with everyone mid September.

  7. Vacation will help then I am sure because of the break from running. I know it isn't in the schedule, but think about swimming and biking only when you get back man.

    Enjoy the vacation!

  12. No computer? You are a tech guy you gotta have an iphone or blackberry right? I mean if I am away from home for more than like 12 hours I bring at least a laptop with the sprint Aircard. I am getting the shakes thinking about it!!!

    Have a great vacation Jon!

  15. I'm getting ready for a running-free month after IMWI. Sometimes you just need to take a break. I'm going to bike like a maniac and am actually looking forward to it. Take it easy and things will get better!
