No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. And I certainly haven’t given up running!
Since the last time I posted, I’ve completed the Hot Chocolate 15K, the Too Cold to Hold 5K, the Fort Worth Zoo Run, and the DC Wonder Woman 5K! There’s also been a cold, travel, and two licensing exams for work (PS I passed both on the first try). And while I’ve managed (to varying degrees) to keep running, but now I’m having to dial it back for a while.
Why? Two words: plantar fasciitis. The “good news” is this isn’t my first time dealing with plantar fasciitis, so at least I know what to do. The bad news is I have to lay off running for a bit to give my foot a chance to get back to normal. So, for the next few weeks, I get to spend a lot of time on my bike (when it’s not raining), a lot of time in the pool, and a lot of time just cross training, in general.
