Given recent foot issues that have persisted despite new running shoes, I've decided to amend my marathon training schedule. My foot does feel a little better in the new shoes (I'm one run in), but I'm still having some stiffness/achiness/swelling going on that isn't normal. So until my foot is back to feeling better I'm going to change my running schedule to something like this:
Wednesday: 10-12 mile run
Thursday: rest or bike/walk
Friday: rest or bike/walk
Saturday: long run (per schedule)
I'm hoping this will keep me active enough, keep my mileage decent, but still give my foot good rest time in between runs. I'm planning on playing this by ear - if I have a longer 20 mile run on Saturday and need to take off the following Wednesday run, I will. But this is the plan, for now.
Luckily my sister-in-law is not so lax in picture-taking as I am. A few Easter pictures I stole from her. Dave and I, enjoying the sunshine!
