Ran another 4 Miles @ 8:10 Pace. Met another runner on my road, a young guy getting ready to go to the police academy and running about 3 miles every few days.

I'm tired of hurting .... it's wearing me out!

I'm out of shape, tired, sore and ready to get things back in order. Going to the foot doctor today to try and figure out if there is something that can be done about my foot. I'm falling apart ... no, I'm tearing myself apart! :-(

I went to the foot doctor and got some answers on my foot. I have 2nd Metatarsal Overload Syndrome in my right foot. The foot doctor took xrays and examined my foot (no MRI). He believes it's not too serious at this time and suggested a cortisone shot, adding foot pads to my shoes to relieve the pressure. Also he suggested Aleve for 7-10 days to see if these things would elliminate the inflimmation and help the healing. I can run tomorrow. Hopefully this will solve the problem but if not I'm supposed to go back in a few weeks.

Ran today. Got the cortisone shot in my foot on Monday. The pain is gone but I still feel the pressure. Added the pads to my shoes. 4 miles @ 7:50 Pace. Slow but better than the other 4 miles the last few days. Hopefully I'm back to so decent training soon. My shoulder still hurts when I run but it's getting better too.

I entered this race a month or so ago as a $5.00 add on to entering the Chosen Half Marathon. I didn't run for about 2 months prior because of a foot problem and then a bike accident. I was only able to run last week so I had very low expectations going into this race. My last 5K two months ago I ran a 19:42 with no speed training and this race I ran a 21:38 with basiclly no training. 

I ran the race at a slightly unconfortable pace but really didn't exert maximum effort. I was able to continue to increase my pace throughout the race and finish with a slight push at the end. Fun day, fun race ... and I ended up with 5 dry fit T-Shirts for doing it! :-)

Again I got to run with Callie. She was dragging a little this morning so I only ran 4. I was still 20 minutes late for work. I've got to get her moving earlier for running together to work. :-) Ran the 1st and 4th miles with Callie.

My shoulder was really hurting, for no apparent reason, this morning.

I was feeling a little better and a little more rested today so I decided to run my small loop which is almost 7 miles (I went ahead and ran a little extra to make it a full 7 miles). I was supprised to find that the results of this run (pace and HR) are actually not far off my normal results when I'm in good shape but I know that mentally my brain was telling me it was much harder. 

I really haven't been feeling very good lately. My shoulder is just throbbing and I don't think I'm getting very good sleep because of it. This hot and humid weather is draining when I run.

On a good note, the Chosen Half Marathon is 12 weeks away and I think I'll be trying for a PR in that race. It's not that easy of a course but with good training and good weather I think I can do it! :-)
