Bad Schedules and A Bad Toe

Well I am too nice. I have a really hard time saying no to people and now I have gotten myself in quite the jam.

Next week starting on Monday at midnight I am on shifts at Fermi Lab from 12am-8am (called the owl shift). The shifter who is on owl shift this weekend has a friend coming into town and was looking to swap the Sunday morning (12-8) with my Monday morning shift. This would actually help me for volleyball on Monday evening.....but....Jason is on shift from 8-4 both Saturday and Sunday, we only have one car, we live about 1 hour away from work, and have a party with our volleyball teammates on Saturday night. So do you follow? My schedule will be up at 6:30 Saturday morning, and then to bed at 8am Sunday morning. Needless to stay I decided to work at home today to try and get some naps in.

In toe news. It's not looking good. My toe is swollen red and hurts to the touch. That can't be good.

Because of the sore toe and the fact that it took us 2.5 hours to get home last night and because it was 45 degrees with crazy wind and rain we decided to take Thursday night off. We are still in recovery after the race right?

The only light on all this crap is that really this is the only week that I have before I want to get into more serious training for the marathon. I want to take the next two weeks to get my milage back up, then I want to start the program a few weeks earlier than I have to. So if I was to get injured or help out a friend or choose not to run in crappy crappy weather then this is the weekend to do it.

I am in the same mode today for some reason. It's been raining for two days, cold and windy, running today is just not appealing. 5k tomorrow and run long on Sunday I think.

I hope your toe feels better, Leah!

Don't feel bad about taking more time off running.  You need to heal.

Sorry to hear that your toe still hurts. I'm sure you've been through worse and you'll have no problem getting through the next few days. Keep your head up and keep your stick on the ice!
