Wonder if anyone noticed I haven’t posted a run for over a week now? Really bad timing for two reasons too. A trip to Montevideo meant an opportunity for one of my favourite runs – 10km up and down the promenade from Pocitos in towards Downtown, getting overtaken by the real runners and enjoying watching the locals out for a lazy afternoon stroll. And today was the Reebok 10km, one of my fave races of the year for the entertainment of dodging overconfidently lined up ankles and the exhilaration of running with 10 000 other like-mindeds on a Sunday morning, including Mer who guardia-ed on Thursday and would have run despite my absence if it hadn’t been for an attack of Bronchitis.
Right foot is playing up. I imagine it’s just a case of overdoing it and stressing the bones on the outside of my foot but it’s been pretty painful the last two weeks and means I limp when I walk, sometimes quite badly. I’ve applied plenty of the RIE of RICE but don’t have an appointment with the Doc for another couple of weeks, so won’t be able to confirm I haven’t done anything worse until it gets better or I go see him. Let’s hope the former is the case and sooner rather than later, since back to Montevideo next weekend and losing out on the promise of the promenade twice would be careless. So no running thoughts to offer you, but plenty of time for other thoughts elsewhere on the blog. Hopefully the Garmin, the running thoughts and I will be back running roads soon.
