My foot has been killing me for the past three days but this morning it seemed to feel better so I went ahead and ran. It was not a comfortable run but I managed the 7 miles hobbling along most of the way. Yesterday I decided to set another appointment with my first foot doctor to get a second opinion. It has been almost a year since the surgery and I don't feel like I'm any better than I was a year ago. The pain was so bad I could bairly put weight on my foot yesterday. Something is not right.

Here's the painful run:

7 Miles @ 7:53 Pace. My foot pain has subsided to the normal level. I'm continuing to show some improvement in conditioning but still a long way to go.

Also had a nice win at a small Thursday night roping today!
