She’s (Sort of) Back!

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.

Welp…

 

I’m glad the weekend went so well. Remember that on-and-off foot pain I mentioned during the Trinity River Half Marathon? Well, that foot pain came roaring back Saturday night after the race. And hung around on Sunday. And continued to hang around today. Basically, I haven’t walked without a limp since sometime Saturday evening.

 

So, I got the afternoon off and made my way to the doctor’s office. On the upside, the doctor didn’t see any obvious fractures on the x-rays. And that’s about all I know. In the meantime, I get to sport the walking boot, ice my foot, and take ibuprofen until I can see the practice’s sports medicine expert…next Wednesday.

 

Will Mallory get to run Dallas, after all?
