After seeing the doctor yesterday and hearing his opinion (and as I wait for the results of the x-rays) I stayed off my feet and did a Crossfit Endurance workout.
30 - 20 - 10 Reps For Time: 12:11 mins.
Full Cleans (25 lb d.bells)
Bench Presses (60 lbs.) (doesn't sound like anything but do it 60 times)
3 x 30 Decline bench Sit-ups
On The Bike: 8 x 20 secs. all out / 10 secs. recovery.
It was about 45 mins. total with the whole works. Circuit training with weights, hard Ab work and Tabata drills for speed. Very tough workout. And now I wait for the call.

Speed hiked 3.22 miles of high elevation paved trail in about 55 mins. My foot is bothering me and I finally made a doctor appointment for Thursday. I read where when you have pain on the top of your foot associated with swelling that gets worse during the run, it's probably a stress fracture unless proven otherwise. I have to find out. My half marathon is in 27 days. I know I'm in the shape to run it, I just don't know if I would end up in a cast if I try. Time to find out.

Ran 2 easy miles in the rain. I usually take Monday off but it was so warm when I got up, and with my early Monday meeting I never have much time. But today, I put on the sneaks and ran a quick one in under 19 mins. (Quick for me in the rain and in the dark.) Great thing that Garmin. I wanted to run somewhere different so I just took off and when I hit a mile I circled around and headed fast for home. Great run on a warm, wet day.

I ran 3 miles today slowly in the pouring rain. Linda A. lost her husband in Afghanistan and a friend of hers ask that we run three miles for her. I thought about going to the gym and getting on the treadmill but it just wouldn't have been right. 3 Miles for Linda A. and her warrior husband.
