My foot has been so sore I haven't been able to run for a few days. Went out for a bike ride and ran into this 20 miles into my ride. Had to turn around and have Sarah come pick me up at mile 24 since the original plan was to meet her at her sisters for dinner which is about a 35 total mile trip. There was no other route for me unless I went on the freeway. :-(

I didn't realize the bridge had washed out in the Memorial Day flood.

Went to the physical therapist last Thursday for my feet. I've been doing some excercises to try and help but honestly my feet feel the same. I only ran 18 miles last week and 12 of those miles were on the EL machine and none on the road. My right foot was really hurting this weekend and I couldn't run but rode my bike one day. 

Today I woke up and my right foot felt a lot better, the weather was great (52 degrees, 82% humidity and 48 degree dew point)! Decided to try a short run and came up with this out and back run. Legs felt great to start but lack of conditioning made my cardio struggle. We'll see how the feet like this run after a few hours.

Went to the gym intending to run on the EL machine but it was being used when I got there so I got on the TM. Ran 7 miles total with 6 miles in the 8:30 range and the last mile @ 7:30.

My right foot was a little swolen but bearable, my left foot was okay with just a couple of little tweeks.

Still struggling to keep up some mileage so I can make it through the Chosen Half on the 21st. Went back to the physical therapist doctor today, he wants me to go back to the foot doctor and find out how much stress can be put on the toe and joint.

I've lost a lot since my last run similar to this one about a month ago.
