Well the week started off great, and had a disasterous end. After last weeks high I was back at it, feeling strong through Mon-Wed. At the end of my morning trail run Wednesday, I had a strange pain/stiffness in the bottom of my left heel. Hmmmm. Walking was difficult, but I figured a little stretching and ice and all would be good. Thursday, still hurting headed out for my run and it was worse. No flexibility in the ankle and pain every push off with the toe. I had a chiro appointment Thursday. and he thought it was my Peroneal Tendon, which almost made sense. As the last few days have unfolded I no longer think it is the Peroneal Tendon as both side of the heel hurts. I have no idea what is going on and walking is painful, running way worse.
Sunday, Father's Day, Graham and I ran the Do-It-For-Dad 5km race in Ottawa. It is an annual race raising funds for Prostate Cancer. This was Graham's first 5km race, where we ran the whole distance. It was hard for both of us, for different reasons, but we had a blast (27:51).
