Diego Columbus' House; The Jayhawk and I on the beach.I've wasted no time jumping back into real life with a touch of bad luck to start it off. I took a nasty chunk out of the arch of my foot and it has significantly impacted my ability to run. Fortunately the Jayhawk has been helping me care for it and placating me when I ask him every 2 hours if it looks better.
One week post injury, the swelling is down and the wound is about half the original size.It's been a week and it is improving, but the wound is right on the arch impact point in my stride, so next weekend's half may have just been downgraded to a run for fun, not time. Since bad things tend to come in 3s, I rounded my three out with my car dying and getting pulled for jury duty all in the same week. Seriously! I think that should take care of my bad luck for the month.
But on to fun things!
I'm not sure if you have noticed, but that little list over there to the right has been growing.
I kind of got excited post marathon and registered for a race or two. Then several I was already planning on opened registration and then on top of that I got asked to join a relay team with some super fast ladies (I believe I am the comic relief for the team and I am very much ok with that). I'm hoping their speed is contagious.
I've got a mix of distances (5k to 39k), surfaces (road, trail, and hills), and a one team event. This means I'm going to need to mix up my training a bit and increase my mileage.
So. I hope you've rested up. We're going to be busy!
