hello friends! Since I haven’t posted a general update in a few weeks I figured it was about time. Running-wise things are going pretty well. I’m closing out April with 132 running miles. This is within my normal/healthy range from last year, so I’m pretty excited about it. I’m also looking forwards to running the Mini next week (and hopefully meeting up with @running-engineering-cats at some point)! I’m thinking that with good weather I’ll be able to run a 1:44-42, which is pretty solid after 4ish months of being in injury/recovery mode. Speaking of which, my foot has been doing pretty well. I still notice a stiff feeling sometimes, especially after sitting still for a few hours, but as long as I keep moving/stretching it feels pretty good. =) (If I were good at adding gifs I’d insert that Rob Lowe parks and rec gif here. You know, the one where he says he has to keep moving to avoid sinking into a pit of despair or something.) I’m thinking I’ll get a cortisone shot after the Mini and see if that gets rid of the last bit of inflammation that’s left. But yeah, definitely feel like this plantar fasciitis thing is just about done… at least for now.
Outside of running things are fairly busy… I’ve been traveling every couple of weeks for work, which is a lot for me. I should be home all of May though which will be nice. And I got some more wedding stuff done this weekend which is good, since we’re kind of behind on some things.
