She lives!

I know, it’s been about a month since my last confession post. I’ve been busy and don’t have a good blackberry app to update with.

Anyone know of one?

Anyways.

In the past month, I’ve eaten some good food —

And some unhealthy food —

(that’s chocolate bacon and it was DAMN good.)

In fact, during one weekend I went to a Giants Game AND the California State Fair:

Beer and fried foods were had. And enjoyed.

I have also:

Gotten my hair chemically straightened —

Started coaching a half marathon group from the bike–

Annnnnd…..

drumrolll please….

started running again!!

Now, don’t get TOO excited. I have done the following runs since I last posted —

July 29 – 1.5 miles on the track to try to flare up my injury for the doctor’s appointment
Aug 5 – 2 miles, with a 20 minute break in between the miles while the group did speedwork
Aug 12 – 1.5 miles on track
Aug 15 – 3.1 miles (above map)
Aug 18 – 2 miles
Aug 19 – 1.25 miles on track, .75 miles walking on track

The doctor said my arches are collapsing. This may have been happening slowly over the last 2 years of me running. He told me to wear my running shoes with super feet in them at work. I laughed. And compromised with:

I’m wearing those super feet inserts in my work shoes and taking my runs easy and slow. And so far, no pain! ::knocks on wood::

I’m not training for anything really specific right now. (On my radar: Tri Girl Tri on Oct 9th, but I can do that run with no training.) I’m not going to boost my mileage over 3 miles for a while. Just gonna let my legs get used to it again.

My next big thing: Texas. White Rock Half Marathon. Dec 5th. Training starts in October. Bring it.
