Bump in the road

I have not run in a week. And, following doctor's orders, I will not run for one more week. I have a mild case of plantar fasciitis, aggravated by my celebratory 30k. So be it. I'm not happy about it. But it is what it is, and I'll deal with it the best I can. I've started some aggressive physical therapy and in the meantime, I'll bike and stretch and do my strengthening exercises.

Normally, I'm a very positive and optimistic person, but when my apple cart has been upset, and things deviate from my plans I have a hard time seeing the glass as half-full. It's half-empty. And chipped. And I cut my lip on it. And then I dropped it. And cut my hand trying to clean it up. Now, I'm wet and bleeding and I have no water.

Having said that, I know, of course that this IS just a bump. A temporary set-back, and it's better to deal with this now than two months down the road. The logical part of my brain knows all this. It just seems to function better when I'm actually able to run.

But oh well. It is what it is. Suck it up, Paige! Rocky didn't cry (except when he won!).


  1. Yo! Stop worrying. It's better to get this fixed now than have to deal with it 2 weeks before NYCM! (And, just so you know, I had to take off a couple of days of training last year because I fell and hit my head hard on concrete when playing bball. I ended up running the marathon just fine and the fretting was just wasted breath.)

  2. Just a little bump Sharon. I deal with these bumps all the time. Too much for my liking, but everything gets better.

    I hope you heal QUICK. I want to see you at speed sometime soon!!!!
