It has officially happened.

I have my first running injury.

This doesnt exactly make me happy, especially since I would give anything to be able to pound out three miles tonight after work.

I have new running shoes that are dying to be used.

I have googled every common foot injury known to runing.  I don’t have one of those.

I have pain along the outside of my foot.  Between my heel and my little toe.

No pain when I touch it.  Only when I walk or move my foot around.

I am, of course, hoping that it is only a sprain/strain or hurt muscle.

I am dreading that it may be a stress fracture. Or something else that will sideline me from working out for the next month.  Or longer.

So I am being an adult.
I will stop hoping that it will just go away on its own.  Because I have tried that for three days, and if anything, it has gotten more painful.

I am going to have to go to a podiatrist.

But the earliest I get into a doctor is Monday.  So, from now until Monday I will sit.  And not workout.  And try not to gain back the weight I just lost.  Ugh.


  1. We are so different. I would give anything for a martini after work. Tell me whose idea is more fun?


    So just stop running and get drunk.

  2. Great review! I am on Day 24 now of Whole30 and it is the best thing I have ever done for mylsef! I didn’t think I ate that bad before, no processed, no gluten, but sugars, rice, dairy and alcohol. The changes I have noticed, and journaled on my blog, are amazing! I am gaining muscle and loosing body fat finally have a six pack!, my sleep is sound and restful, energy is out of control, skin is clearer and just feel awesome!This may seem like a huge challenge, giving up the typical SAD (Standard American DIet) but you will be amazed and will learn a lot about your body along the way.One of the best benefits that is starting to show is that my kids are now craving healthy, real food! They see that is all I eat, comment how good it looks, and try it now! Go for it, all you have to loose is some fat, restless sleep, and lack of energy!
