A Week Off
Tuesday: 3 sad, sad miles
I took this picture of my ankles after my “run” on Tuesday. You can’t really tell, but my left ankle and lower calf were completely swollen. I thought my calf pain was gone after feeling okay for my 15 miler this past weekend, but I think the Advil just masked the problem. Colby thinks I need to take ibuprofen, stretch, ice and take at least a week off from running. Miss my 16 miler this weekend?! I guess it is really want I need to do. I was practically limping on Tuesday when I was trying to run through the pain. If I want to make it to the marathon, I guess I have to take the time off.
This is week 11 of an 18 week plan. I’m hoping to take a week off, ease back into it and possibly run the 18 miler during week 13. I might try to ride my bike with Colby as he runs his 16 this weekend, but I promise. No running for a week. Even though it makes me really sad.
Even though I was upset over the injury and no exercise… it was kinda nice to come home after work and relax. Then I got an email that my engagement pictures were online and I was very happy! Here are a few of my favorites…
