Well I got some good news tonite at the doctor’s office. While still not 100% yet, the foot is definitely doing better, so I have the go-ahead to run the Marathon Kickoff 5-miler on Sunday-as long as I promise not to get all competitive-esque and race it. (No problem. My 5-mile PR is 37:51 on the same course-considering that sub-9’s feel like work these days, I don’t think my PR is in any danger of falling.) And I can actually run 3 days next week…yay. But Sunday should be fun, I’ll get to meet up with the Flyers afterwards for brunch (mmm…Bellinis!) after they run the last 10 miles of the marathon course.
But while the PF looks to be going away slowly with time, I’m not sure I have my fatigue problem kicked yet. I thought it was overtraining but now I’m not so sure. I did have bloodwork done earlier this year but all I got was “oh, there’s nothing wrong with you.” They didn’t even give me the exact results (numbers, etc.) Being that what’s normal for a non-athlete may not be normal for a runner…I’m thinking it may not hurt for me to get a second opinion and get re-tested while I’m really not in training for anything except to recover. Something to think about…
and of course, a day is not complete without a small-world encounter (finding out I went to college with a client of mine) and a missed connection on the subway. Dammit, why do I have to be so shy sometimes.
