Today I decided I would run. Practice was at Liberty. I did a mile warmup with Nat, then over to the start line. My foot hurt right when we started, but it warmed up a little as we kept running. Then we did strides and my foot hurt a ton on those. Next was a mile. I was supposed to hit 6:30 since my foot was hurting, I hit 7:10. Right when we started I could barely move it, it hurt so bad, but it warmed up, once again, a little bit into it. It still hurt a ton, but it was at least manageable to run through. I didn't feel winded much, but my foot really set me back. When I stopped it was so painful to start moving again, I had to quit the workout. Bill said to try barefoot running for a bit, still was super painful. I hope it'll feel better soon.

I biked today for about 30 minutes going up 13th to Wasatch then turned around at thunderbird. 

We had our BBQ and Alumni fun run thing at sugarhouse. I did 1.25 warmup. My foot wasn't hurting too bad when we started, so I decided to run it. I started out okay, I felt a little out of shape, but halfway through my foot started to really hurt again, I ran through it but it hurt. At least I was able to run it this year, last year I was injured too and couldn't run it. I was 2nd on the girls side, got 18:27, so not that fast (it was 2.5 miles.) Hopefully this plantar fasciitis will go away soon. Hurt too much to do a cool down. Took 10 steps and knew it wasn't happening. But good news is I'm a captain again, this time with Stormy!!

Today my foot was hurting still, so Bill told me to go over to the dog park (we met at the zoo trail) and do core. So I did. Crunches, planks, arm swings, push ups, wall sits, squats, modified version of lunges, all sorts of fun stuff.

After work I went back to the pool and did 10 minute warmup, 10x2 minute on 1 minute off, 15 minute cool down. Definitely have not missed pool running. I am actually pretty sore from core yesterday, maybe that's an indication that I should be doing core everyday.... :O I saw something interesting on the way home, some guy didn't read the signs at Harmons saying not to take the carts past the yellow line, a cover went over the wheel of his cart and he was trying to drag it across the street. Apparently those things do work.

10 minute warm up, then a ladder of 1 on 1 off, 2 on 1 off, 3 on 2 off, 4 on 2 off, 5 on 3 off and then back down. On the cool down I only got a little under 2 minutes in when they kicked me out of the pool because they were closing. But I did bike for like 5 minutes, going home like usual, until my tire decided to go completely flat. Nothings gone right for me today. Some girl in the lane next to me asked me what I was doing, like was I running but not touching the bottom? Yeah pretty much what pool running is. It must look weird. I've only pool run for 2 days and I'm already sick of it.

Today I went to the meet to cheer everyone on, everyone did great!!! Wish I could have raced it but oh well. Once I got home from school shopping I went to Steiner and did 30 minutes of pool running until they kicked me out again, I guess on weekends they close early. Funny how I work there and I didn't know when they close. But my shift wasn't at night and I never bothered to ask. Anyway, after that I went up to the elliptical bike and did that for 25 minutes, then decided my foot felt good enough to do the other elliptical, so I did that for 10 minutes until that part closed. This has by far been the worst week ever.
