2018 has been a great year, and also the year of the leg injury. Leading up to my last marathon on 11/03 I was having shoe/foot struggles, but got through the 26.2 miles. What I now fear is happening is tendonitis. I have not yet been to the doctor for this, but am taking it easy for a few more days. I know the old saying is 'listen to your body', which I did. Took it easy and then I tried to run after a few days and the pain would return. I'm doing what is driving me up the wall, and I'm not running for the next 5 days.
This will be tough on me as you may know I depend on running as my therapy. Also it's just fun for me. I like getting out and breathing in the air, being in nature, and meeting other runners. The goal of hitting 1300 miles this year is slipping away and I'll be happy to meet my amount of 1128 miles from last year. The plus side is I've gotten the feeling back in the toes in my right foot, that was a bummer. Trying to remain positive in this, to lay off the legs, and get myself prepped to safely run again. Looking at big things for 2019, wanting to kick off the marathon season in April doing the run in St. Louis.
