So two days post 14k and my Arch’s are a bit niggly!
I am Rolling! Rolling my Arch’s. I have also spent a good amount of time with my legs in the air! lol
Every chance I get I am on my back elevating my feet.
Tomorrow I am going to run.
I follow the Expat Runner Blog written by the Irish Nomad. She also suffers from Posterior Tibial Tendonitis.
On the advice from her Physio, she was ordered to run 15k! So after some deep massage and ankle stretches off she went.
Tomorrow I will be following that same advice. Except not the “15k” bit ha! Just an easy 5k for me, with or without the children.
Actually now that I think about it, last time that my arch pain flared up, I ran on it days later and it seemed to actually help it. This Akmal (Expat Runners Physio) must be on to something!
Today consisted of some casual walks with the children, some baking, some gardening and cleaning the interior and exterior of the car. Of course I am not just going to do nothing with my day, even though my feet are achey.
But I am wondering whether I will eventually need to seek some professional advice about my Arch’s. They are starting to annoy me! I may have to deal with an orthotic!
Unfortunately this will be my last ‘Pimping the Beast’ post. I am still going to concentrate on losing that last 1.9kg, and keeping within my daily calories. I will still be continuing to do a Leg day every week, and also my dates with Jillian for Ab’s.
I am just running out of time to do everything that needs to be done leading up to Christmas. My children turn 2 in just 4 weeks – this requires an elaborate party! (We are not having any more children, so these birthday parties need to count! ha!), then we go away camping for a week and a half (yes, with 2 year old toddlers!), Back for Christmas, Then travelling for 3-4 hours for a 40th, then New years… all while training for a Half Marathon.
I am looking forward to every single mad moment of it!
What do you have planned for the rest of the year? Any loose ends that need tidying up? Any Mileage goals to meet before the New Year? How about starting some training to come run the Wellington Round the Bays with me?
I’ll still be around, blogging my awesomeness, and not so awesomeness!
Still bringing the Beast,
P.S. 10 DAYS TILL RACE DAY!
