Tuesday: Planned 4 miles. We ran in shorts and had to battle some very fierce wind. I can tell that I am in shape, but not enough to battle these crazy spring Kansas winds without feeling like I might die. I am going to be very honest and say that even with the anti inflammatories on board, that I had some pain in my foot throughout my run. It was more like a running on a bruise than any sharp stabbing pain, but it was there. The pain certainly wasn't a deal breaker, but it still makes me feel like this is not healed and maybe we need to do more to figure out what the hell this is (see a podiatrist or nerve specialist?). I was pretty sad after this run, that maybe the weekend activities of running 6 on the road and pool jogging was too much, and that maybe we should be going much more slower with this.

Thursday: Planned 5 miles. Well, Kansas decided to go crazy all in the span of a day. Wednesday we had wildfires burning out of control in southern KS that were causing massive amounts of smoke in the northern part of the state plus ash was falling from the skies. We had horrible wind gusts up to 40 MPH in some parts of KS that sure wasn't helping the fires. Then sometime over night and thursday morning, we got snow dumped on us. It wasn't much, but to see the ground covered after an 80 degree day the day before was very surprising. Here are a few photos that my good friend Alice took and posted of the hazy smoke that blanketed us most of the day Wed and the snow we woke up to Thursday morning. After work, I headed out to do my 5. I decided to run with music, something I normally don't do, just to distract myself. I had pain, but it was different, more in the arch of my foot. I kept telling myself different pain is a good thing, which is different than anything else I have ever done. Any pain is usually bad right?
