Run 2/5/2009

I have not ran since Sunday and I don’t plan on running again until Saturday. On Monday after the full mary I took a walk in the morning and another short walk after work, then my foot/ankle started to hurt me. It still hurt Tuesday and Wednesday when I walked too. It’s my tendonitis foot, so it might be the tendon acting up. I decided I would rather make sure it is completely okay before running again so I can bounce back fast.

So, I’ve just been taking easy walks and relaxing. I want to make sure that I am mentally ready to run again too since I want running to be enjoyable for me, not a chore.

Note: A general rule of thumb is not to have a hard run again for the number of days that the race was in miles = 26 miles means no hard run for 26 days.
