After my awful run yesterday, my feet were feeling that same kind of pain, and there was a weird lump on the lateral side of my left food. I immediately thought, "Stress fracture! OMG, I'm not going to be able to do the marathon now!" But I didn't want to jump to conclusions. I took it super easy yesterday and hoped that a good night's sleep would help.
My feet still hurt pretty badly, particularly my left foot. I pray to God that it's "just" inflamed or bruised or something. Today is obviously a rest day, and if I still feel pain tomorrow, I'm going to rest as well. I'm going to ice it and keep it elevated, and hope for the best. I'm also going to switch to my new shoes (they are the same exact brand and model of shoes, just brand new).
Anyway, I had plans to go to Whole Foods with Jessica today for her birthday. We got there pretty early, at around 9:30, and did some grocery shopping. We got coffee to carry with us (decaf for me, of course) and we picked out a treat to have with our coffee. I was going to get gelato again, until I tasted Jessica's turtle brownie. It was seriously the BEST brownie I've ever had in my life!! It was really soft and gooey with caramel. I tried to get a pic after it was half-eaten, but the picture doesn't do it justice:
After we were done shopping, we got our lunch--I had been planning on getting pizza, but when I walked past the Chinese food, I had to sample the orange chicken and was immediately sold on that. I got orange chicken, fried brown rice, and an egg roll:
After lunch (no dessert, since I had dessert with coffee!) we went to pick up our race packets for our 5k on Sunday. We picked them up at a running store. While we were there, I bought a couple more Bondibands in fun colors (those things are awesome for wicking sweat!). I really wanted to get a specially-made one from their website that says "Runs for Cookies" but it's uber expensive to create your own. So these will have to do!
