Wednesday is when the foot pain came on QUICK during a run.
Friday a sports med doc said it was just tendon issues, and I could run through some pain for a bit (like a few months) before doing any real damage. The doc told me to try out 3 miles yesterday (Sunday), and if that went well, I could race the 10K and maybe even the 5K (as part of the "double-header") today.
Well yesterday, my run turned a little painful about a 1/4 mile in. I turned around and stopped after a half mile. It wasn't horrible, but I imagine it would be HORRIBLE after a 10K of racing had I raced this morning.
I want to make sure I'm ready for a half marathon in 6 days, so I thought it was best to skip the Victory 10K and 5K today. After all, I had won free entry into the race, so I wasn't even out a penny. Trying to be smart here! OK... time to massage my foot...
And for no particular reason, here's an Instgram from a few days ago:
"So this just happened in our backyard...."
