So strep throat sucks. Hadn’t had that shit since elementary school. I’m allergic to most antibiotics so I ended up with Levaquin which makes joints hurt. Fun.
The past few days with Red have been really fun and easier than it had been for a long time. I’m hoping we turned a corner there, but really she will probably be possessed by demons tonight just because I mentioned it.
So no long run was done over the weekend and my 55 mile week turned into 35. This week will be my big 55 if I can stay healthy. My weird foot pain was bothering me even after my three days off so I mentioned it to my chiro. She adjusted my foot, which luckily was still clean from my morning shower. I also switched back to using my Brooks Pureflows and so far so good. Maybe chiros aren’t all quackadoodles.
Eased back into running with 5.5 on the treadmill Sunday. I ran 10 yesterday and 8 today, the majority of which was outdoors. Yesterday’s run was fun and easy. Today I was really struggling still at mile 3. I was very aware of any pain in my foot, the sidewalks seemed extra icy, and I am running with my monthly visitor so my stomach felt like garbage. It was one of those “OMG I never want to run a marathon because these 3 miles are so hard” runs. I pushed through and did my eight for the day. Maybe it just took me 4 miles to warmup. It wasn’t THAT cold though, probably around 20.
I took my little chunky monkey Tater Tot to the vet on Friday for his yearly exam.
Cost me $250 bucks to find out that he’s fine, lost 2 pounds, and WILL snap if you stick something in his butt.
I’m so bored lately. No races til March. Still trying to work out travel details for NYC half.
