Not the best news from my podiatrist today. Yes, I can run again, if you call running an 11 minute per mile pace for 1 1/2 miles every other day for the next 2 weeks "running." I'm on a gradual running schedule to build myself back up to my longer runs by the spring. So, after two weeks, I can increase my mileage to 3 miles every other day at an 11 minute per mile pace. Then increase my mileage to 4 miles or so, at about a 9 1/2 to 10 minute per mile pace. You get the idea. Plus, I still have to wear my night splint, and my heel cup for the next month. My goal of running a half marathon again on April 5th is gone. I'm not even sure when I'll even be running a 5K race again. The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon will not happen on May 3rd. My new goal: Running a half marathon on June 28th. This sucks. PLEASE, fellow bloggers, appreciate your running even more. I will continue to be inspired by all of you as you continue to blog your race reports. By the way, congrats again, Lisa! You really kicked some half marathon ass!!
