Oh great Yoda

I am following all the bloggers in bloggy world and doing the ABC's of me.

 Before we get to them,  My Heel has been feeling really good this week so I decided that I would do a 3-4 mile run at an easy pace.  PF has had me in the pool and on the bike and ice.  The weather was cold (26) so I headed to the mill.  I made it 4.5 miles at 10.30 pace with little pain.  I felt like I could go more but I got a little scared.  I do not want to make the PF worse.  My pace was not my desired pace but I will take it. I did a lot of stretching after and came home to ICE!  ICE! ICE!

Heel is a little sore.  UGH!  Good News though, Not as bad as it has been.  Lots of stretching tomorrow.  I will be doing Stretch X!

Please tell me I have plenty of time to train for my races...

I am running the TX/NM Challenge Half in New Mexico on April 23rd.  And then contemplating the OKC Memorial Half on May 1st.  That is back to back Half's.
