Sigh

I haven't run since that 7 miles I did on Saturday, because my left foot is bothering me in that inner ankle area. It's a little swollen today. I had my last Phoresor treatment today so I'm hoping it will feel better tomorrow. I'm depressed because it's not looking good for running that half marathon on Sunday. If I couldn't handle 7 miles, then 13 is out of the question.

I ordered new shoes (Saucony Omnis) that will arrive tomorrow. They have more pronation control than any of the other many pairs of running shoes that I currently own. I'm hoping that will magically make it possible to do the half on Sunday. Yeah I know, don't run a race in shoes you haven't done a long run in. It's just the dreaming side of me that thinks I'll be doing the half. The realistic side of me - the depressed side - thinks I'll be sleeping in on Sunday and feeling a little mournful.

My house is filled with stacks of running shoes. I hope I get the chance to wear them all out some day.

((((HUGS)))) Cathy. You will run again. Hang in there and let yourself heal. I hope the new shoes and orthotics speed the healing and prevent anymore pain and swelling.

Sending good thoughts, too, Cathy. I know how frustrated you must feel. You just want to run, pain-free. Doesn't seem like too much to ask.
