So I started off the new year determined to be more consistent with my running. It was great! I think I ran 3 miles or more for 7 days straight. Then I had a really busy week and a half where I was on my feet about 8-10 hours a day and my foot started to hurt. I'm not sure what it is or what happened. I'm hoping it's nothing and that after I give it a little bit of a break it will be fine again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one, can you tell? I don't want to go to the doctor. I don't want to hear what they have to say.
I have stopped running though. I stopped about 5 days ago and I've noticed an improvement, so I'm going to keep this break going until it's totally better.
While I haven't been running, I've clearly still wanted to work out. Lucky for me, I work at a place with a lot of opportunity to do just that. Last week I swam and did a TRX workout and this week I started spinning. We had 30 spin bikes delivered to the pool in December, so I might as well put them to good use. On Monday I spun for 25 minutes just to try it out. I brought my ipod, a book, and a bottle of water. It was pretty nice. I tried it again yesterday, got lost in my book, and actually went for 48 minutes. That's a pretty long time for me and it was quite the workout. I was drenched in sweat when I finished.
I'm going to try to keep this up for a while...wish me luck. And keep your fingers crossed that my foot is better ASAP.
