I tried running today...fail. :(
I did 2 grass laps with the girls, and it felt great to be running again!!! Towards the end of the 2nd one though, I could start to feel the pain. But I didn't pay much attention to it and assumed it was just my mind getting the best of me. Then we took a break, and did speed changes. I felt great, I was in front, right where I was supposed to be. Then I felt my foot hurting again, and thought "oh no" and laid off a bit. Abigail passed me, I tried to speed up and go with her, but it was too much. I also felt so out of shape after that!
The workout was a 1000, 2 800s, and 4(?) 400s. I told Bill before we started that it was hurting, so he gave me a slower time. I wasn't happy that I couldn't do what I wanted, but I knew it was the right thing to do. So I was placed in a group with Sarah. So I just knew that I needed to stick with her. I started out great, I was right behind abigail the whole first lap, then on the 2nd my foot started to hurt again. With about 200 left, the pain in my foot and my out-of-shape-ness combined to be too much. I slowed down, and Sarah passed me, making me lose it mentally, and practically jogged the last 100. We were supposed to jog 1 1/2 laps, I got 1/2 of one done when Emily asked if my foot hurt, and I said yes, so she said to stop. So I did.
Bill said to judge if it was mental stuff or if my foot really was hurting. I put weight on it, and yes, it hurt. Not as bad as the day I stopped running, but it was still hurting me pretty bad. It hurts in both places now, top and bottom. I told Bill it DID hurt, and the thing he told me was the thing I did not want to hear, to stop running.
You know, I'm really upset about this. I thought I would finally be able to run, but no. Every time I watched the girls all come around the track, I was reminded that I was once there, and that if I weren't injured I would STILL be there. I'm not gonna be able to race at Pre-Regions. Back to the stupid pool.
