I've been able to get out running the last couple of days, albeit gingerly.
Wednesday I knocked out 9 miles in my Minimus trail shoes, though toward the end of the run I was wanting more shoe and yesterday I tacked on 7 more in my trusty old Cascadias.
Last night I noticed that I once again could distinguish the tracing of a vein across the top of my foot. That of course means that the inflammation is going down. It's still not gone (need an entire network of veins bulging up there), but it's getting better. The pain is easing off too.
All this is good. This afternoon, I'll run 11 miles in Cuevas. Not sure where, I expect the roads are muddy as there has been a fair bit of rain the last couple of days, but I really want to log 50k between today and tomorrow and then again between tomorrow and Sunday. That'll essentially cap my "training" for the Blues Cruise and I'll really ramp up the healing process going into the race.
Gear wise, I'll go with my Vibrams today, Minimus tomorrow, and decide between them for Sunday's run.
Thanks for reading, and until Monday then...
