I think that I might put the blog on hold.
Here I sit in my home office day after day and the pain in my foot is slowly subsiding. No, I didn’t go to a doctor. I know, I know… I should have gone right away, but I have confidence that this is going to be fine in a week or so.
I won’t do this again. I won’t overdo my miles and risk injury. I am going to let this heal and then run a couple miles and over time gradually increase my mileage. The goal of the Philadelphia ½ marathon in September and the full marathon in November are still viable, but I will not be running 13 miles much before then.
Until I get some major mileage and get closer to my goals, my blog entries will be pretty lame; “I ran to the end of the block and back. The end.” So I am going to keep the bolg page up in case someone stumbles upon it and wants to Facebook friend me or contact me, but I won’t be posting too much.
I know that a couple people have told me they actually have read my entries. I really, really appreciate it! It was fun to write about my initiation into barefoot running.
Keep the faith and get out and run (but not too much too fast)!
