18 Wheeler... keep on Driving

right over me. At least that is how I feel after my long run this morning. My whole body rebelled and decided that today was not a good day to run that far. BUT I got my butt out into the rain and hung on for dear life and ran. Hip and calves hurt at first but by mile 4 they were pretty much warmed up. The rain finally stopped around mile 8 and stayed away until the last mile or so.

I'm worried though... the top of my right foot hurts.. a lot. I don't want it to be anything big and I'm thinking that I'll wake up tomorrow and it will be a bad dream. 6 weeks to CIM and its not a good time for an injury. I'll ice again tonight, I'll ice tomorrow and back to running and KOR on Monday.

So I'm giving that 18 miler (and wheeler) that kicked my ass today, permission to keep on driving because I have too many important things riding on this program and a lot of prep/run time invested. Lets keep our fingers crossed for good news!

Tina - those 18 milers are HARD! I don't know why we don't acknowledge that but is SUCH a long way to go. Baby your foot, ice it, rest it, be kind to it. You will be fine.

Thanks Petra! Foot is propped and icing now. 18 miles is far and 20 miles next weekend in the rain is a little scary. I forget I have people out there who feel like I've felt. thank you for reminding me.
