Last week my leg was feeling better. I told Sarah that I wanted to test it out. I did test it out by taking Herbie on a long walk. I got just over a mile into the walk, when the top of my right foot started to hurt real bad. I almost had to stop and call my wife to have her come pick me up. I actually did text her, and she didn't reply, so I slowly walked the rest of the way home. When I got ready to take my shower, after I'd been sitting down for a while, my foot hurt so bad I could hardly walk on it. I ended up hopping into my office and resting some more until it felt good enough to make the climb upstairs to the shower.
I wasn't sure if it was a stress fracture or just soreness due to inactivity. But it was feeling better so I decided to try and run on it this morning. I went real slow. I wanted to go over to the Floodway and turn south instead of north like I usually do. But for the last two weeks they've been doing construction work at the stop sign at 48th and Adobe. They're replacing a sewer line. When I got to the stop sign it just looked like there were too many work trucks around, so I continued straight. I basically took the same route I walked Herbie in, only in reverse.
Everything felt ok. I did stop twice to stretch out my calves and catch my breath. I was wheezing for the first half mile. But all in all, it was a successful run.
