Totals : 7.5 miles
Last week my theme was sweaty and hot, and surprisingly 3 days last week were a bit cooler... like the temperatures were in the 80s instead of in the 90s.
This week, sadly, the theme was pain. Two weeks ago my calf/ankle pain started to subside. I started warming up more before my runs, but on Tuesday I started having some pain in the back of my right heel. I googled it. Some articles claimed lack of stretching my calves/ ankles.
Tuesday, arrived home to this
I have a love hate relationship with suspension training...
I ran with the a combination of three running groups, about 18 people were there. It was a different type of run... The run was to be 3 or so miles, with stops at three local breweries. Almost everybody had a beer at the first brewery, and then ran 1 mile to the next brewery. I didn't drink, because 1. I don't drink much, 2. I don't drink when training. The run was fun, we ran in Harrisburg, by the capitol and other buildings. I really enjoyed it. And I felt pain on my right heel the entire time we ran.
All day Wednesday I felt the back of my heel tingling, and was very nervous because we had the Harrisburg Mile race that night. I iced it, massaged it, put an ankle support thing on and kept stretching my feet. I was not going to drop out of a 1 mile race!
After work, on my way to the start line, I saw my son running with his father's girlfriend. I asked him if he wanted me to run with him, he said yes. He had 3/4 of a mile left to run.

My age group was to start at 7:15. Jodi, Emily and I were very nervous... we had never run a mile race before. I'll do a recap later this week.
My garmin said my time was 7:17. My official results were 7:12. 10th of the 30-35 group. Rogers Time was 8:38.
I got up extra early on Thursday to run 3 miles on my hood. It felt really good, I only wished I had more time to run.

The pain didn't bother me during this run, but it came back later that day.
Sunday was just waay too hot. That and the pain in the back of my heel was still tingling a bit, so we skipped the long run. I want to feel bad about it, but I don't. The road will be there when it's a tad cooler and when my heel is no longer hurting.
