First run post-marathon went well. Just a little guy, did the Gorge route, tried to take it a little easy, ended up pushing my pace and doing bench sprintervals, I can’t help it, the Gorge route just makes me feel the need to interval train. Everything felt decent, foot was achey but fine. And then I took off my runner after and my foot felt like it was going to explode. I think I need to get an xray. It’s not getting better. I’ll tensor wrap it before I run tomorrow, that should help. It’s making wierd grinding and crunching noises and it just feels wrong. yuck. Training now begins for the Bear Mountain 10k. Lotsa hills. ugh. Printed out the course map today, giving it a try with Marissa tomorrow.
Sidebar: I don’t feel good about Starbucks instant coffee. I know, I know, I haven’t tried it, but it just seems fundamentally wrong. Although instant coffee has gotten a bad rap. Maybe I should give it a try before I condemn it. However, my first reaction is to feel not good about the whole thing!
