Well, I've found the flaw in my training plan. My kids have swimming lessons on Friday afternoon. The younger three are together in a beginner class with 10 students and 1 teacher. It wasn't going to work, so I volunteered to assist. After 30 minutes, I'm exhausted. And of course, swimming is between my short-long run Friday mornings and my long-long run Saturday mornings. I was so tired this morning, I forgot to turn around and ended up doing an extra quarter mile! Oh, well, on race weekend when I *don't* have to swim between runs, I'll be that much more prepared, right?
Now for some good news: I haven't had any discomfort in my foot during my last three long runs! I think it's finally healed. Just in time, too, because I'm heading into high mileage. I did 7 miles yesterday and 14 today. Only 8 weeks until race day(s)! And now I think it's time for a nap.
