Foot was sore from the start but felt better during the run. More sore later in the day.

My HR is finally starting to go down.

LESS EFFORT = FASTER PACE

For some reason my foot felt much better this morning. Maybe it's because I took some Nyquil before bed? :-) ...Or maybe it was because of the pop and warm feeling I got in my foot Tuesday when I ran? Don't know but it does feel like some improvement.

My running is getting better despite my foot. I've gone from a pace/effort of about 8:45 Pace/165 HR to 7:45 Pace/155 HR in about a month. My target is 7:15 Pace/145 HR, this is where I was at at the peak of my training before the CIM Marathon in Dec. '14.

6.66 Miles @ 8:09 Pace - 155 HR. Feels like I'm coming back. My foot is sore after every run but not to the point that I can barly walk as before.
