to my running friends–please help

Lately while running my left foot has began hurting about 4-3 miles into my run.  it feels like it’s a sleep you know that numb but hurts feeling.  Today it again did it but at the 3mile mark.  I stopped and completely loosened my shoes.  It did make it feel better but it didn’t go away.

So do I

1) try another run with my basically untied sneakers

2) buy another pair that are wider/or bigger (of course I would go to Fleet feet before buying a pair

3) try inserts??

Any tips or suggestions???

Who's that girl?

I am sorry that I have been gone for about a half a year.  I have no good justification other than being so tired at night that I have not been blogging at all.

I can tell you that on December 1st I was 177  - the last time I weigh myself (4 weeks ago) I was 189.  I can tell that my clothes from last summer are not fitting that comfortably.  I need to get my act together and get this weight off.  It was all gained in December and has not come off since – I did get down to 182 in March.

I am still busting my ass at bootcamp – during the winter I went 4-5 days a week. but its my food relationship that sucks.  Candy, candy and bad portions as the major issues.   I was named Bootcamper of the year!! I am pretty excited about that!

On super bowl Sunday we did the Next Level 1000: 100 push ups, 200 Squat jumps, 300 Kettlebell Swings (I forgot what weight I did for a swing) and 400 burpees. Heres my after photo and time:


I am really looking forward to improving my time the next time we do it.  I also ran a 5mile race for the heart run and walk.  I am in the process of training for the 15K boilermaker – the biggest road race in our area.  Tons of media and events leading up to the race.  Sunday I ran 7.25 miles in 1:24 minutes.

I am refocused – and hopefully out of my funk.  I am recommitting myself to my blog – hoping the accountability will keep my head out of my backside.

This photo was taking a few weeks ago around Easter.  It was right after I shook my favorite hockey players hand (twice!)


Talk to you soon!!
