This week was 32 miles of running and 6000 yards of swimming -- training log is here.
|I named them Fred and Ginger.|
More ups and downs - isn't that how it always is? Highs were a track workout on Tuesday, and possibly one of the best rock concerts I've ever been to (VNV Nation - I've seen them at least 7 times, and they've never had a bad show, but this was outstanding).
I also got a pair of orthotics from my podiatrist, and started phasing those in.
For the first day, wore them 1-2 hours, then started working towards wearing all day, with the goal of starting to wear them for short runs next week. They felt fantastic at first, however, they seemed less comfortable the more I wore them.
And then I noted the outside of my right heel starting to hurt again towards the weekend. I'm not sure whether it's associated with the orthotics, especially since I didn't wear the orthotics while running. However, I do note that the foot hurts more when walking in the orthotics, and less when I'm barefoot.
After an easy 6 miles on Saturday, the foot was definitely sore. Shit. It felt much better the next morning, but I decided to sit out running anyway. I may give it another day or two to be safe, and then start coming back carefully. And contact my podiatrist tomorrow.
