|I wish i could sleep like that in the car! He got a nap while I drove.|
|I love this time of year when the storms try to build and break afternoon early night. The clouds are amazing!|
Tuesday: Four easy miles with the girls. I honestly didn't know where my foot was and didn't know what to expect. I wanted to see if would hurt on a short run and prepared Mel that I might not make it the whole 4. Oddly enough, my foot didn't bother me at all, go figure. I did try to sleep in a strassburg sock (homemade at that) versus the night splint and I must say, I slept so much better and my foot felt great upon waking. I also did a barre class called RUSH and it was again amazing!!!!
Wednesday: Chiropractor day! Dr. Needles was mad at me for staying away since last November. He quickly got over it when I told him about my theory about my shoes and my possible PF. I had brought the new version of the Triumphs and the older versions so he could geek out on them and geek out on them he did. He took measurements and weights and pictures. This is why I love this guy!!!! He truly is a scientist and dr! He feels pretty confident that the shoes did cause this, and gave me even more exercises on top of all of the healing PF exercises to try and counteract this mess. His biggest worry was that this could become a chronic issue and that total rest is really the only way to get rid of this. My coach did bring up that barre may even be aggravating this too as we are always up on our toes and pointing, so I may have to modify my barre exercises because I a NOT stopping now. Even though he was talking about a break, I never felt that normal panic I feel when I am trying to get things accomplished. Let's hope I can stay that way. After some horribly painful trigger point massage and some ultrasound diagnostics, he taped my foot really, really well and made me promise i would take it easy especially after my last pacing duties on June 2nd.
While coach likes for me to do 18 week training cycles, she assured me that we could get by with a shortened 14 week cycle if needed, and I could still be okay to pace my friend Lindsey in early September. Whew. I also ordered a specific heel cup that my chiro recommended, and I am probably going to see him weekly for a few weeks. Finger's crossed that this all worked as he is very against steroid shots and orthotics. He is very into fixing what causes this verses a quick fix, and that is why I love him. I may spend all day doing PT though but if it works, it works.

|The photographer sent me more pics from my marathon! So many to chose from now!|
Post work and sylvan Andrew and I went over to see the second corpse flower blooming at KSU! I got to see the other one bloom last year and I wanted Andrew to get to see one as this may be the only one in his life time! Andrew was pretty nervous about the smell but he was brave and un-pinched his nose long enough to get a picture.

Sunday: Rest day. T ball got rained out so we took our show to the shop and practiced there. Andrew hit two bucket of balls, which is HUGE for him, and took some good corrections without crying and whining. I was pretty sore all day so took it easy and even took some dreaded advil to help with the pain. Surprisingly, several of my other friends were sore as well so it wasn't just me, which makes me feel a little better.
