Training Journal 1/14-1/20

Monday, January 14-Sunday, January 20, 2013: This was the week of the much anticipated HURT 100 mile endurance run!  This week I finally decided that I needed to get my foot checked before the race so that I could run better at HURT.  I'd been having foot pain since early November when I got my mileage up consistently and I needed to know if it was something serious (ie. stress fracture).  Thursday before the race I saw a sports med doctor and got an x-ray.  The doctor gave me the green light to run- no discernable stress fractures.  He diagnosed the pain as a tendonitis and recommended resting after the race.
