Is it Better Yet?
Well, the short answer, of course, is "no." I still feel pain at the base of my left heel when I stretch it out, or when I toe off. The pull in my right calf seems to have resolved, more or less, but I guess I still have a case of achilles tendon/bursitis in my left heel. I've done nothing but swim, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This has been good for my swimming. Yesterday and today, I'm actually taking off, since I have a work crisis that needs my full focus. It is, however, searing my soul that the biggest race in Brooklyn history will go off on Saturday without me. I love the Brooklyn Half. My photo for this blog is a photo from last year's race. This year the "expo" is in a tent just a few blocks from my house in Brooklyn Bridge Park. A big piece of me wants to just pick up my bib and soldier through it. I am counting on my runningprof friends (you) to talk me out of this. Let the injury heal you will tell me, right?? Okay, right. . . Grumble, grumble, ouch, grumble, grumble, ouch . . .
