Training Log - Friday, September 17, 2010
We left my house at 5:30 AM for an easy road run. Well, it wasn't a good day for me. The pain in the bottom of my left heel has flared up for some reason and I felt the throbbing in my heel. This must still be related to the VFF trail run Richard and I went for a few weeks ago, when I lost my balance and landed hard on top of a rock with said heel. On top of that, my stomach started acting up as well, which never happens. So an easy training run turned into a short 4.4 mile run and walk, well, more walk than run, really. I am going to try to address the heel with some Ibuprofen and see if that helps. Otherwise, I am really going to have to start to worry. I have a 24 hour race next weekend and I won't be able to even attempt my goal, if this doesn't get better. I jsut hope it's not a fracture. On the side note, the temperature was perfect and cool with the humidity being unexpectantly high duer to rainfall overnight.
