So I tried out the new shoes last night (just 2 miles) and it was hard to tell if they helped at all. I was so hyper-sensitive to everything and even the slightest twinge had me on edge. I know this is more severe than a “worn out shoe” pain. I was just in denial.
I decided to take the week off and just rest it. I’ll continue icing and using the heating pad before bed. I have an appointment with my orthopedist for Friday morning. If he looks at it and says it’s okay, great. If not, I’ll work on my recovery one day at a time.
I may not be able to run the Buffalo Marathon May 30th like I planned, but I can work towards the one I had planned for September. There’s lots of other races.
