Last week’s workouts were scaled back after Loon Mountain.
I was not sore at all just a little fatigue in my legs. However, on Wednesday, it seemed like my plantar fascia got really angry with me. I’ve been feeling some twinges in it off and on for the past couple of weeks. I would stretch, ice, foam roll and it would be a couple of days before I felt anything. I’m guessing it doesn’t approve of me wearing sandals even if they are Birkenstock.
Rather than making it more angry, I took Thursday – Sunday off from running to let it calm down. As of Sunday night, I’ve got no pain so I’m hoping I nipped it in the bud.
Even though I felt completely fine after the race, I opted for extra sleeping time. Always worth it!

I let my legs do what they wanted. Nice and easy was perfect for shaking the fatigue off from the race.

5.6 mile run, 8:54 avg/pace, 300 ft elev gain
I felt great during this easy pace run with Kyle. But after being on my feet all day at work and then standing at a baseball game for 2 hours, my plantar fascia started to hate me. My mind went into full injury panic mode. I’ve never had any issues with PF so this is all new to me. I vowed then and there to take some time off from running to give it my full attention.

If I can’t run, at least I can ride my bike. It’s really not a bad way to start the morning but I’d much rather enjoy the water views running then riding. But, at least I can do that!
I wasn’t feeling all that great so I opted for another rest day.
How was your week in workouts?
