An evening I don't have to work
All of the heavenly bodies must have converged in some special way, because I managed to leave work without any reason to VPN in later, whoohoo! Partay = eat a nice supper, then settle in to watch the replay of today's Tour de France stage and hope I don't fall asleep before the end like I did last night. But if I do, oh well.
Yesterday's training was nothing special but for the fact that it was the first double of this Plan; otherwise it was total recovery. This morning I ran 14 and tried to stick to the spirit of the Plan, which is to say that I ran the 2nd 5 faster than the first, and the last 4 faster than that. I was feeling right proud of myself until I went to leave for work and noticed exquisite pain in the arch of one foot. Once at work I iced with frozen peas a few times which helped the foot, and then I noticed some pain and tightness right where the stress fracture was last year oh my god. Hours later it's just a bit sore, and it's completely muscular (I think, I hope), but I'm glad tomorrow's workout is just a 6-mile trot around the neighborhood.
