HBBC Week 3 and my first injury. Boo!

So week 3 was going to be it! My best week ever, or best of 3 anyway. It started out great with an 11k run followed by a 3k walk with Gordie on Saturday and ended with a pulled something or other in the top of my foot and me taking it easy for the last half of the week. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. And of course it's always those days that you can't do certain things where you see them everywhere, teasing you. I doubt that I've ever seen as many runners out there as I did towards the end of the week. But, as my walks past the Long Term Care Facility by my house told me, things could always be worse. At least I could still get out there and take walks. And that's what I did. And now my foot feels 100% again. So of course I have a rotten cold now. *sigh*

My week in review:

Saturday was a kick ass day 11k run and a 3k walk (8.5)

Sunday I worked and then took a nice 2.5k walk at night with Gordie and checked out the Christmas lights around the neighbourhood. Some are so nice. Others. Well........ (1.5)
The nativity set to lights........not 100% sold on this idea

Monday morning I hit the gym at 5:30am did 20 min of weights, did a 5k run on the treadmill on the hills setting and got my 7 servings of fruit & veg. Yay! (5)

Tuesday morning I hit the gym at 6am, skipped the weights because it was shoulder day and my shoulders were killing me from a busy night at work the night before and ran 5k intervals on the treadmill. I have to tell you about the man on the treadmill beside me....he was really sweaty........really really sweaty. He was so sweaty that it honestly looked like a dog got out of the lake and shook himself off all over that treadmill. Nice gym etiquette. After telling my friend about this she told me that there used to be a guy at her gym who would wear a raincoat on the treadmill to make himself sweat more! LOL What is wrong with people?! (4) I also got my 7 f&v in today!

Wednesday my foot was starting to bother me whenever I bent it so I laid off the running and just went for a 3.25k walk and ate my 7 f&v. (3)

Thursday my foot was still hurting so I stuck to walking. 3k & 7 f&v was my total for the day. (3)

Friday, surprise. Foot's still sore and now I'm starting to get worried. Between 2 jobs and 2 sons (1 of which plays on 3! hockey teams) I have absolutely no time to get this looked at! So I walked 3k and ate my 7 f&v. Taking 4 servings into work in the mornings is really helping! (3)

Any way, making sure that I wore supportive shoes all week (I really missed my Uggs), keeping my foot wrapped and keeping it up as much as I could really helped. By Monday it felt as good as new. Too bad the rest of me doesn't.

Weekly total 28.
