So let's see, just what have I been doing?
The diagnosis is in: tendinitis of all three tendons in my right foot. So I've been taking it easy for what seems like FOREVER and trying to listen to my damn ankle. I have a bunch of exercises I have to do, and I think they're helping so I'm continuing to do them. So very boring. And I've been walking a lot in lieu of running. Also boring And I've been doing more core work so hopefully that will pay off at some point, too.
|Note the distance - I must have killed the tangents again! |
My official time was 30:31.
|It gets kind of warm in Arizona in August....|
Remember last February when darling daughter and I traveled out East in search of the perfect college? Well, I dropped her off at college last week. In Arizona. Did we travel to Arizona to look at schools? Nope. Have we ever even BEEN to Arizona? Nope. So how did she find this school anyway? Her boss told her about it during her performance review. She looked it up on the google, applied, found out that they would be very generous with scholarship money and made her decision. Ta da! But it's awful having her that far away. A three hour plane ride and then a two hour drive...... She'll do great. I'm the one who needs to adjust.
