Sooo I might have gone a little MIA over the Thanksgiving holiday. I was thoroughly enjoying my time in PA and wasn’t all about spending a bunch of time on the computer.
So what have I been up to the last week you ask?
Well let me give you a quick rundown:
My mom and I hit the outlets on Tuesday looking for some pre-Black Friday bargains. I found a cute pair of boots and a few cute work things so I’ll call that a win!
I spent Tuesday night catching up with some of my friends from high school. We met for dinner and drinks and met a friendly guy at the bar who bought us a round of shots. Then the bar closed at 11. Only in PA, people, only in PA.
Thursday, like every other good American, I gorged myself on Thanksgiving deliciousness. But I did run a 5K that morning to make me feel a little less guilty. I also signed up for the Runner’s World Holiday Run Streak and committed to running at least a mile every day between Thanksgiving and New Years.
Friday I ran an awesome 10-miler on a rail trail near my parents house. It was a gorgeous day and I was able to run in capris and a t-shirt and feel perfectly comfortable. Managed to hold a decent average pace too.
Saturday I hit the pool with my mom to swim with her masters swim group. We did 2,000 yards and I was spent by the end, but I squeezed in a one mile run to keep the run streak alive. I also tried out my awesome new Pro Compression socks. I know they look really hot tucked into my capris.
Then this happened.
And the run streak came to a crashing halt.
It appears I have strained my peroneal tendon. It’s a small tendon that runs from your foot up and around your ankle. I can’t walk at all unless I’m in my really sexy air cast, but I’m hoping the pain and inflammation start to fade by the end of the week.
If it doesn’t, I’ll go see a doctor, but for now, rest is pretty much the only thing that will help this.
I’m already going out of my mind with boredom. I. miss. running. so. much.
