|Doing my part to keep Garmin in business.|
Also, I am not a baby, but I worked a full day yesterday (Saturday) standing on concrete in dress shoes, and it was tough on my feet and kinetic chain. By lunchtime I had significant pain in the joint where my pinky toe connects to my foot, and I was limping by the end of the day. It's a bit better today, but I decided not to risk running on it. I hope it's just a weird thing and not an actual injury. We'll see how it feels tomorrow.
I am glad to have this week behind me, the busiest week of the year in my field. I was actually lucky because I didn't have to work last Sunday and only worked one evening this week, Friday. I told, not asked (haha), my boss that I was leaving early Friday to go for a run before my event. This is why I keep a Y membership — for showering between work events! This made for a long day Friday and a long day yesterday. I came home yesterday and laid in bed until my husband had dinner ready. He even brought me potato chips to eat in bed — what a guy.
So, I'm bummed that I didn't get to train yesterday or today, but I definitely needed the time to relax. With the busy-ness behind us, hopefully I'll get to hit it hard in the next few days. I considered briefly getting up early to run today, and even set my alarm for 7:30 a.m., but almost instantly fell back asleep and the next thing I knew it was 9:10. Well. I obviously needed the sleep.
I hope you're having a great weekend and a great Mothers Day if you celebrate! I had a lovely brunch with my mom today, during which I ate way too much bacon, if there is such a thing.
