Foot Karma

Remember yesterday, when I bragged about conquering my foot and making it run? Yeah…apparently the foot gods don’t like arrogance, so here we are again.

footI’m hoping that wrapping the ice in a pina colada towel will make my foot think it’s at a party. And no, I still have not repainted those scuzzy toenails. Maybe that’s why my foot is mad.

Anyway, here’s what happened. It is not an interesting story, but I’m telling it regardless. I tried to run outside this morning, and after two blocks, my foot said, “Yeah, no.”  I took it inside to try the treadmill again…no dice. So I went to the gym, did  30 minutes each of elliptical and bike, then some abs, and took my sulky self back home.This is pretty uncool, too, Mr. Foot.

I think I will just cut my losses this week, cross train some more, maaaybe run this weekend, and hope that by next week, things are back to normal. It just feels like I overstretched some tendons, so I hope that a few more days of R & R will bring it back around. I know that losing a few days, especially this early in the training cycle, will really have no detrimental effect. But it still bugs me, you know?

We’re headed over to my hometown tomorrow for my high school reunion. Kinda weird to think that it’s been ten years. Also kinda weird to think that I used to look like this:

high school 002(So old that my yearbook was mostly black-and-white)

I’m interested to see how many of my classmates have changed, too, and what they’re up to. I think Facebook has taken away some of the fun of class reunions, though.

That’s enough rambling for today, don’t you think?

Did you (or will you) go to your high school reunion? How much did people change?

What do you do when your best-laid workout plans go oft awry? (Bonus points if you can tell me whose quote I just butchered there.)

  1. Yeah, the foot pain suck, mine’ll do it occasionally. Good luck at the reunion, ours was nice, and facebook does take something away. Also it’s good you are going, your brother was lame and did not. Have fun.

  2. ah your poor foot! thats unfortunate. my 10 year reunion was in 2011 and i didnt make it. 1. i live a few states away, and 2. both my parents have moved so i wouldnt have had a place to stay and 3. it was over thanksgiving break, so i obviously chose to be with my fam for that holiday. i guess it makes sense if your fam still lives in the same town to do it that holiday though. anyways, have a ball!!

  3. RATS! I’m so sorry your pesky foot is giving you trouble again. That pina colada towel should definitely help…or just pour some tequila on it…that would make me happy :).

    And girl – you look GREAT! Have a wonderful time at your reunion.

    My 10 year is next year and I won’t go. It’s 10 hours away from where I live now and I’m touch with everyone I want to know. And you’re so right – facebook changes everything.

  4. I already told you my ten year stories and thoughts, so I will just ask you a question. How do you think you have changed in the past ten years?
