Still riding the high from Sunday's Oly. Really cant wait for the SC 1/2 IM. This week is mainly a recovery week. At least until the weekend.
My back is much better. It really hurt on Monday, by Tuesday, the pain was barely there. Now its just about gone.
I definitely need to stay out of the pool for a little while. My shoulder continues to hurt. I shouldnt have swam today, but I did and after 1300M, it really hurts.
Tuesday I went for a easy run. I started out thinking I might actually do the intervals planned as part of this week's HIM plan. I knew after a few of them there was no way I was going to make it through it, especially as hot as it was. I ended up doing a total of 3 miles.
I think my new Nikes may be going back. I feel like the side of my foot hangs over in them. I wore them last night, and this morning my foot still hurt. I may try a few more runs, including this weekends long run in the New Balance's I have and then just buy another pair of them. At least my feet fit into the new balance. My big problem is that the outer side of my foot tends to "hang over" the side of the shoe, thus putting pressure on the side of my foot. I dont think my New Balances did this. I may try losening up the Nikes to see if they feel any better, but most likely theyre going back. Hopefully Big peach will take them back. They just have a few scuff marks on the bottom.
I am hoping to feel better for Saturdays long run and Sunday's long ride. I wont get back in the pool till at least next week.
OH! And the photographer still has not posted photos from the event yet! DOH!
