Happy foot :)

Good news - my foot is doing much better today. I walked a lot at work, pain-free :)! Gotta love the cortisone shot. Hopefully that plus the orthotics will cure me and keep me from relapsing.

Even better news - I got to racewalk a little this morning! I went to my weight training class and decided to do some short RW intervals mixed in with my weight sets. I went around the Huntsman Center (right next to HPER, where the class is) and back to class 3x, for 0.37 miles (0.6 km) each loop. I did the loops at an average pace of 10:08, 10:10, and 10:21. My foot felt basically fine, and it was SO GOOD to RW again! I am totally hooked on RW and enjoy it so much. It was so difficult to have a long layoff. Just the short distances I did today were really wonderful and improved my mood a lot.

I'm hoping to be able to do some good miles with the team tomorrow. Don't worry, I'll be careful... but if I'm feeling good, I'm going for it!

oh that's such great news. It feels so good to be able to walk again. I hope all goes great tomorrow for your longer walk.

I am back to the physio on Monday, hip pulled again today. Maybe another week off for me.
