I took 5 days off to rest my foot and since then have run 2-4 miles every day (Wed-Sun). I’m not sure what to think about my foot. It’s not acting like a stress fracture. It doesn’t get worse as I run, it doesn’t always hurt in the same place (sometimes it’s my big toe or second toe, sometimes it’s the original area of soreness). But I did have that acute sore spot when I was at the chiropractor, which certainly makes it seem like a stress fracture, or at least the beginning of one. I don’t really know what to do. So I’m just going to keep going and see what happens.
This week will be the first week I wrote my plan for the week instead of winging it. Still just a bunch of 2 and 4 mile runs and short strength workouts, but I scheduled them. Seemed like it was about time.
My new shoes are both working out well. I prefer the very minimal Pace Gloves but I still rotate with the Bare Access.
I am finally down 5 pounds due to cutting back a bit on calories. My runs are feeling pretty good but they are all short and easy. My pace is picking up finally, too. I will eventually start eating some food on runs but I am not running long enough yet.
