My foot felt better today but it was raining in the morning so I opted to run late in the evening. For some reason it just feels harder running in the evening to me. (Not that I do it very often.) Got 3 MP miles in. Don't know why my HR was so high to start out...this was really strange??

My foot was very sore for the first 2 miles then just unconfortable for the rest of the run. Legs were tired from last evening run but the weather was good!

My weight was down to 156 which is the lowest it's been in six months. Finally about the right race weight.

Couldn't resist the nice weather this morning. I was all packed to go to the gym but then felt how nice it was outside and opted to stay home and run.

I have a little concern this morning with my left foot (not my right that I've had surgery on), this morning when I was simply putting on my shoe if felt as if something stung me on my foot right at the same spot where my right foot began hurting. As I rub on that spot there seems to be a little tinder spot there....Oh I hope I'm not getting the same hammer foot condition on my left foot now! :-(

Just an easy low effort run this morning.

Now very concerned with my left foot. Having an occasional sharp pain in the same place as where the right foot broke down. :-(((((((

Still going to try and run in the next couple of days...maybe it's nothing.
