Today it seemed a little warmer than the conditions read, but better than normal. Today I go back to the foot doctor, on my own accord, to see if there is anything that can be done to relieve some of my foot pain. I'm sure at best it might be a cortisone shot but he may not want to do that. I'm really hoping for something to relieve the nagging pain.

On a different note, today I ran the big loop. No real goal but as I ran the first part was just running while the middle was a slightly uncomfortable and then a push at the end. I also had run the same run about a month ago (8/28). It is interesting to compare the two as the conditions, topography and other factor are all exactly the same or very close. Looking at the paces and HR it is interesting to see the improvement mile after mile and how much it has been in a short time. I think in anoter month I will improve another 30 seconds per mile with the same effort.

Next weekend I am going to California to run the Long Beach Half Marathon with Callie (my daughter). I can't decide if I am going to just run with her (at about a 8:45-9:00 pace) or try and push myself. I think my best effort would be about a 7:30-7:45 pace.

Hey enjoy the run with your daughter (either way, racing or pacing)... Have any races planned after that? That might help you decide.

From SlowJoe on Fri, Oct 02, 2015 at 19:49:08 from 107.77.100.95

Nice work. Any luck with the doctor?

From Hillbilly Runner on Sun, Oct 04, 2015 at 13:25:41 from 76.122.210.58

Nice run but the suspense is killing me !!! What'd the Doc say?

From Tom Slick on Mon, Oct 05, 2015 at 09:37:54 from 168.179.158.193

Ya, what did the Doc say? And I think you should just run the Long Beach 1/2 with your daughter, just have fun!

From I Just Run on Mon, Oct 05, 2015 at 12:04:33 from 108.178.73.170

Doc said it was still healing fine/looked good/joint was still tight. I told him how sore it has been and showed him how large/swollen the joint was and he said "yes". So basically no relief given just assurance it should get better. Since then it was so sore on Friday and Saturday that I could not run at all. Visibly limping every step.
