Headed to downtown East Austin for the Adios East Side celebration for Rogue running store. They are moving to the heart of downtown west of IH35 to a bigger space Feb 1.
They kicked off the day with runs leaving at 6 and 7 am. Met several friends down there for the event. HUGE turnout. I knocked out a great 8 miles, which is the longest i’ve run in over a month. I thought about 10 but I didn’t want to push it. I have a race next weekend that I will be participating in, but certainly not racing. I’ve been registered since last May, which was wishful thinking on my part, since I was barely back to running then.
We stuck around for the party for a bit, then a trip to Trader Joe’s, and then back North. It was a productive yet exhausting day of errands after that.
My mom is visiting, so her and I got a Netflix movie and settled in for the evening. I went to get up to put my dinner plate in the dishwasher and I totally crushed my foot in my sister’s futon. There was a bar holding the cushion on and I was sitting on my foot. When I leaned forward to get up, the whole side of my left foot was smashed by the bar. There was a crunch. Hopefully it was bone pushing muscle against metal. Anyhow, I have a swollen and sore foot. It’s been iced off and on since it happened.
Hopefully this is just a bruise and nothing serious. I was getting my hopes up about having a better race than Shiner next weekend!
