Weigh-In; 236 lbs Miles Run Today: 7.85 Week Total: 26.2!!!
That's right! I'm done!
I got on the treadmill this morning planning on maybe doing 3-4 miles, which would have been half of what I had left. After yesterday's run I started to develop a slight blister on the side of my big toe on my left foot, and where that rubs on the toe next to it. So last night I went to Sports Authority to try to find these socks that I figured might help:
I couldn't find them so I tried another store. No luck. This morning came around and my toe felt OK.
Back to my run this morning: At around 3 miles I decided I felt good, so I'd go ahead and do 5 miles, leaving me about 3 for tomorrow. When I got close to 5 miles my toe starting really acting up again, and having some experience with blisters before I had a feeling it was going to feel pretty bad after the run, so I decided to go ahead and do 7.85 miles which was what I remembered I had left in order to have run a marathon.
In the end , I did it. At one point I fell off the treadmill though! It backs up to a wall, I just closed my eyes for a second and I guess I went too far back. Somehow I ended up into the wall, kicking the chord out, and then landing next to it on my feet. So one second I'm running, and the next I'm standing next to a turned off treadmill. Luckily I had been watching the numbers on it so I just laughed for a second, then jumped back on and added the totals in my head to what I had.
That's pretty much it. I think I made the right choice finishing today because I'm now limping around the office due to my toe. I'm taking tomorrow and the weekend off from running, then next week I'm moving back to morning H.I.I.T and weight training.
