I got out again on Tuesday morning and ran.  I am proud to say that I completed just shy of 3 miles (2.9 to be exact).  

It was cold!!!!   BRRRR

The foot....ached.  By about the midway point I was dreaming about taping my foot.  Because yes, I'm obviously not the brightest lightbulb and I haven't been taping my foot.   When I sprained my ankle last April I taped my foot a LOT.  Stupidly, I haven't taped it at all with this most recent sprain.  Yeah, stupid.  I'm not sure if it is a placebo or if it really helps, but I believe it helps so I will be doing it.  I taped right after my run and felt immediately better.

However, I was beet red....this was taken a good 10 minutes after my run ended....was it from the cold or from the exertion?  ha ha ha

So the run?   I swear it looked like I was running on concrete and blacktop, but it felt like I was slogging through quicksand!    I wasn't feeling awful but I felt like I was running as fast as I could and just not moving.   I checked my stats...I was actually only a few seconds per mile slower in my pace on my Tuesday run when compared to my Saturday it really was mostly in my head.   Oh well.  I pushed through.

The weight....Monday was my official weigh today was Grrr!    I'm ok with it though. I'm doing what I need....for the most part staying within my range and doing what I need....the healthy weight will follow!!! 

How is the contentment going?  I'm working on it.   I'm happy with with where I am at.  I have some stressful things that are on the fringes that I'm worried about...and while some days I panic.....for the most part I feel content.
