Week's Summary

I am still in recovery mode.  I can still feel a bit of lingering tiredness, especially in my quads on my longer runs.  These are just residual effects of the marathon, just about two weeks ago.  I know, you basically aren't supposed to run after putting in a full marathon for nearly a month, but with this weather and despite my soreness, I have been putting in some decent training.  It was also half the reason why I went to the hot springs today.

I am a little bummed I didn't get in a quality speed workout session, but I was sort of saving that for my 5K race.

If I included all the miles I walked, I would've easily eclipsed 60 miles for the week.

Upcoming Races

Next weekend I am hoping to do a 10K up in Ogden.  I am also going to sign up for the Riverton Half Marathon.  I got a flyer from them stating that they are capping the size of their race.  That race isn't until next month and I ran it last year.

I am also finding it hard to believe that in about 2 months, I might be doing another full marathon.  I've got the Sand Hollow Marathon down in Southern Utah on the radar as well as Reno.  The Sand Hollow one is probably the biggest probable at this point.  Looks like I am going to have to start to ramp up the miles a bit.

Weird Injury?

I've had some pretty rough plantar fasciitis in the morning.  Not good.  I've dug out my orthotics and I am hoping they will help.  They aren't the most comfortable things, hence why I don't wear them very often.  But more often then not, they do stop plantar fasciitis.

Also around mid week I found that on the ball of my foot, just below my toe, on each foot, my toe area would just ache.  It wasn't a sharp pain, but it just felt numb and achy.  I am wondering if running on the trail in Bountiful last weekend had something to do with it.  It is mildly better today but still it is something to put on the radar.

Keep running!
