It has been a crazy week. We are trying to get our crops in and it keeps raining. Needless to say it can get a little stressful around our place, this time of year. I don't handle stress very well. The first thing I want to do is eat. I know I need to replace that thought with go workout, clean house anything but food. That seems to be easier said than done. I missed my workout this morning, because I had to be around to make sure the guys got moved to what ever field was next to plant. I know it will be over soon. But I really hate missing a workout when I have a race coming up.
The other thing I have been dealing with since last weekend is an ankle problem. I got 28 miles in last week with my vff's. On the last two runs I noticed my ankle was hurting when I plant my right foot and pushed off when I'm running. On Monday I thought I would try running in my running shoes to see if that made a difference. It still was hurting. On Tuesday I thought I would try running in my vff's for 3 miles. Starting out it was hurting quite a bit, by 2 miles it still was hurting but not as bad. I was able to get the 3 miles in.
I didn't have time to ice my foot before I went to work on Tuesday. My foot was bothering me the whole day. Finally when I got home I got some ice on it. The ice helped relieve some of the pain. I know I sound like a broken record, but I have a 20k on June 4. I was so hoping on running that race in my vff's. Right now I'm not running at all due to the pain.
I got on the Internet to see what it might be. My pain is right around the back of my right ankle bone. It looks to me like it could be a peroneal tendon strain. I think I might of over did it in my vff's. "SHIT" pardon my french. I only have 2 1/2 weeks to get this ankle better before my race June 4. The Internet said to rest it and do some strenghting exercise for the tendon. So my workouts consist of the elliptical and weight training along with some strenghting exercises for my ankle.
