Summer Run Streak, Day #49-#57

Obviously I'm not going to recount all of those days.

Suffice to say I've been running, and I've had some complications. I slammed my right middle toe into the bathroom cabinets (because I'm a clod. Can't handle walking through my own house.) and it's been swollen since. I'm not convinced it's broken, as I can move it, but it has been very badly bruised. In any event there isn't much to do for a break like that other than buddy tape it, ice it, and rest it. I've been limiting my mileage because of that, and I've been limiting my walking as best I can, too.

Sleep is pretty messed up, but it's summer so that's to be expected. We've been doing a decent amount of stuff with the kiddos, and with friends and family. So that's fun, and I'm having to remind myself that July isn't usually a big mileage month for me anyway. Mostly my marathon training usually ramps up in September, so I shouldn't be expecting 50 mile weeks right now.

The wife and I joined a gym, and we've even done a couple of sessions with a personal trainer. I should be doing more to build strength in my upper body and core, and I've absolutely been taking a pounding from the workouts at the gym. Today I was actually so sore I considered taking an ice bath for my upper body.

So anyway that's what's going on. I'm going to do my best to get back to the daily running log, and hopefully soon I'll be writing more about upcoming goals. We have a couple of big things we're working out race wise, so I'm excited for that.
