    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I ended the week at 2/7 with a 5 mile race on Thanksgiving morning. My foot bothered me pretty much the entire run, and the next day was even worse. :angry: Looks like I will be putting my running on hold until this dang foot heals. I've been reading some running forums and based upon my symptoms it sounds like I have a tendinitis, so basically rest, ice, ibuprofen are the treatments. I'm hoping that laying off of it for a week or two will allow it to heal. So my fitness on here will be spotty at best for the next bit. I still have 8 weeks until the half marathon, so there's enough time to build my mileage as long as I can get back to running in two weeks. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!!

    Sorry things are so busy for you, Debra, but I'm sure you're burning tons of calories with all the work you're doing! And keep up the great work Verda, you continue to be such a rockstar!!

    I'm still sitting at 0/7 for the week. :sad: At least my foot isn't bothering me as much to walk on it now, so maybe within a week or so I'll be back at it. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    Hope everyone is having a good week and keep up the great work!

    Hey guys! Just checking in. I actually ended the week last week at 1/7 with 35 minutes on the elliptical, and was relatively pain free. Today I had an appointment with the podiatrist at our hospital who happens to be my neighbor, so I was able to bypass his 2 month waiting list--score!!! He checked an xray which was fine, and he thinks that I just strained the ligaments in one of the joints in my foot. I'm getting custom orthotics, and I can start running once I'm pain free. So we'll see if my foot will c ooperate with a little more rest. In the meantime, I think I'll befriend my elliptical once again. :smile:

    Hey friends, hope everything is good for you. I am so tired these days and I feel so unmotivated. Glad to see this feeling does not spread around like the flu :wink:

    Keep up the good work and I hope your foot feels better soon Heather.

    ok... only 2/7 this week

    Sunday I hit the hotel pool pretty hard and last night I took a brisk walk before game.
    not to good, I know... but really trying to get back in routine...

    Heading to town for mail drop off and a few groceries then I have to pick up my son and get dinner... but will try to jump on elliptical later tonight... I need to sweat out some toxins!
