Thanks to all those hills in San Francisco, my 2 big ole toes were holding me back. I needed to get out and do something. So I decided to take a walk with my dog Miles. We ended up walking 3 miles. 🙂 My first 1/4 mile, my left toe was hurting. I didn’t know if I could do it and I almost turned around a couple of times. I asked myself, does it hurt or is it uncomfortable? If I stopped every time I felt discomfort while running, I would never complete a run. I think with every run, something bugs me. I once read that you need to know the difference between true pain and discomfort. I’ve always used this theory when I run. As long as I can keep running, I keep on running and most often the discomfort stops. So I kept walking and sure enough it eventually felt better. This was the first day I’ve worn tennis shoes since race day. Flip flops were my best friends and for work I wore Crocs. It felt great to get out and exercise. Even if it was just walking. 🙂 I work every other weekend, so I won’t be able to try running again until Monday. I will try and hit the gym once this weekend (a mini workout) well see how my toe friends are doing on monday.
