A short update on the running.

Here’s an update.

Been very slow going this week, I’ve still got that weird “pop” feeling in the back of my left foot, around where my achilles is … so for that reason, I’ve basically rested up this week and will get back on the horse come Tuesday. It really is problematic when I walk around barefoot and walk up the stairs.

Maybe when I cut the grass tomorrow (it’s way too long and it’s all wet right now), I’ll get a feeling for how the rest has done for it. I had tendonitis in my right achilles a year or so ago and had to wear a boot around for like two weeks. I’ve worn the boot on my left foot just to keep it straight for a few hours at a time, but I’m still doing things with the girl that require anything other than the boot — batting cages, driving range, dinner, movies — so I don’t want to slow the pace.

That’s the abbreviated update for the time being.

Marathon Update: June 18

In case you’re wondering, there hasn’t been any video this week because I’m all out of tape. Yes, I sadly do NOT own a hard drive camera, so that would mean I have to run out and get some of those little miniDV tapes.

I’ve bought too many of them this year and after using an HDD camera yesterday down in Rochester while covering the Jimmy Chase-Justin LaValle wrestle-off, it’s about time I “get with the times.”

Thursday’s run sucked. I got zero pace, no motivation, no rhythm. 3.34 miles (or 3.44). iPod started working tonight after I got home.

So I didn’t run Wednesday. My left achilles was feeling a bit funny, so I just rested instead of trying to pressure it. Bad runs for me right now, mean more walking and running.

So for now, I need a real video update, but I’ll just get a new camera instead, then work on it from there.

Things I don’t want to do today …

This run …

I’ll do it anyway, but I’m really NOT feeling motivated.
