    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.
