Recovery & Menu Plan – May 23, 2010

This has been a long week. I have been recovering from my marathon last Sunday, which has been harder than I thought it would be. The hardest part? Staying away from the gym. My body craves exercise & I become a very cranky witch when I am forced to be idle. I saw the dr last Monday and he advised me to rest for a week and if it still hurt Monday, come back. I was very sore Monday & Tuesday, no problem staying out of the gym; I could barely walk down the stairs. Wednesday I started to feel better and get antsy. My foot was still sore, but the rest of my body wanted to go. I did a lot of yoga, stretching & foam rolling. My foot is still sore, though not as bad. I am going to call the dr tomorrow and probably head back in to be safe. I would hate to resume any gym activity (elliptical, bike, etc) and have a stress fracture. The plantar fasciitis is still there, but I know what that pain feels like. This other pain is on the outside of my right foot. It isn’t constant and has been improving. I would just hate to make anything worse. If it is just the pain from the plantar fasciitis, then I am fine to get on the elliptical, bike or even run slowly. I am heading to swim tomorrow and lift some weights in an effort to save my family from my crankiness.

    Sorry — I'm just now seeing your info on Simply Heinz. We've been getting the Meijer Naturals ketchup for our family for a while now. Our daughter just goes through too much ketchup to be exposing her to that much HFCS. Taste is really good, so I thought I'd offer it up as a suggestion too…

    Thank you! My kids won't touch the Meijer stuff!! :( I don't see a difference in taste, really, but they can tell. My kids might as well drink ketchup! LOL!

  • Hope it's not the PF… that's the worst! You may already know all these tips, but a looooong time ago I wrote a post about my experience with PF….

    I've since learned how to deal with it pretty effectively – so I think/hope! – but it's frustrating that it's never going to be completely gone.

    Have a great day!
