Let the healing begin

Tried out my new running shoes on the treadmill last night. I'm happy to report that they are very comfy and didn't feel like "new" shoes. I don't believe there should be a break in period with new shoes and these fit the bill.

However, I think the time is coming that I need to take some downtime and let my foot heal. It's getting progressively worse and while these new shoes should help the problem, I think I have to heal first. I could only run for 20 min last night and then I switched to the elliptical, which also hurt for a couple minutes but then was fine. I HATE to scale back on running. I enjoy it and really it's so convenient. I don't have to worry about weather or time or expense or anything - I just go. Swimming isn't an option, and with the rain this week I'm not interested in biking. And I really don't want to just completely take time off. I suppose I could just focus on weights for a week to at least keep active. Sigh......

Today's meal plan....

Breakfast - Red River Cereal

Lunch - Raw Veggies (Carrots, Celery & Cucumber ) & Asian Noodle Salad

Afternoon Snack - Banana & Yoghurt replaced with Almond Butter, a few pretzels, 1 oreo type cookie and 4 jube jubes

Dinner - Almond Butter and strawberries on a small La Tortilla Factory wrap (having a light dinner before bootcamp) replaced with a piece of breaded sole

Post Workout - Yoghurt & Berry Protein Smoothie

Points 21

Exercise - 60 min bootcamp (but I may walk during the beginning run to take it easy on my foot) All of Level 2 and 1/2 of Level 1 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

That sucks Heidi! But I think taking a little break will do wonders.
I haven't ran in a day and i'm already getting antsy!
You'll be healed in no time.
