Speaking of yesterday, it appears serious injury has been avoided. After the debacle that was the treadmill workout yesterday, I really did have some concerns about how injured I was. Today, my left knee is very sore, but, I can work with it. My right leg hurts from the bottom of my calf, around to the front near the top of my ankle, up through my calf, and finally, all the way up through my quadriceps! My right calf is sore, but it isn’t the stabbing pain that I had last year.

I am guessing it is just some type of strain and will be fine by next week. In the meantime, I’ll be returning the Dr. Scholls inserts later today!  The one good thing that came out of this is that the inserts did quiet my running on the treadmill as well as relieve the pain on my bone spur. The foot doesn’t hurt at all! Since Zappos gives you free returns and shipping, I am going to try these inserts: Sorbothane. If they can provide me with some extra cushion, that can only help. I really noticed a difference when I took the Dr. Scholls inserts out. My shoes felt almost worn out!

Today is a work day and then later, I’ll be reading up on the Jeff Galloway training manuals that we have here. Training manuals

I’ll be switching to the methods described in the manuals next week as well as just running on the treadmill as a warm up for my regular workouts. I am confident that right now, I could do the 10 mile race and finish in the allotted time, but I do want to make a 10 minute per mile pace which puts me somewhere around an hour an a half finishing time goal.

Until tomorrow……………………………….   🙂

    Ok. That’s all I had to say. 🙂 Thanks for following, and we hope to hit the ground running this upcoming week. The website is still It just looks a little different now.
