three after ten

I finally went out for a short run today after ten days of trying to rest/heel my left foot. I still don’t really know what exactly is wrong with it. I think it’s just “stressed out.” It was a bit of a struggle to get back in to my rhythm. I felt like a lumbering old rugby player. I think this was because I was trying not to flex or push off of my foot too much and so I was over using the other muscle groups that aren’t as much a part of my normal stride.

The foot never hurt during the run and it doesn’t hurt now, either. Which I assume has got to be a good sign. I’m hoping to get in a run each day for the rest of the week now – maybe even a bridge run.

This adds support to my theory that while it’s a good idea to rest after an injury, it won’t stop bothering you until you get back and run it out, or ride it out, (or drink it out) or whatever activity contributed to the injury to begin with.

Hmmm... M...

Well, M could be short for Midnight Rider, but I doubt it. Why would Midnight be anonymous?

Or Mallie. No, same reasoning as above.

Or Me. No, if I left a message for myself I'd probably remember.

Or secret adMirer. Nice try.

So, I guess that leaves Mom. Who else but an international spammer or my very own mother would call my blog beautiful?

Is that you Mom?

(too!)

Wasn't me. I'm always nonymous. Also that competitiveness should pass as you get older. Well it did for me.

Then again, maybe it was because I always came in last that I gave up competing.

Or it could be bird flu.
