Slow Progress?

It's been a few days since I posted and I don't necessarily have a big update. Since my last post I've been to Catalina for a couple of days, I've done yoga once in my hotel room as I promised I'd do for myself and I went to see my therapist.

I took a break from the running and haven't been working out as much as I have been for the past couple of weeks. But at the same time, I'm trying to listen to my body. The aches and pains are still preventing me from running. I've been doing some research on shin splints and know that the only thing that helps them go away is to stay away from the activity that caused the pain for several weeks. It's been less than one week since I ran, and I'm not sure when I'll try again.

I asked around to see if anyone knew of a good podiatrist and I got a nice tip about a Santa Monica based podiatrist who will be at a running store near the Venice Pier tomorrow for most of the day. I'm going to bring my sneakers and explain the problems that I've been encountering and hope that I can get some great advice to help me get on my way. And maybe I'll get an appointment out of the deal too.

In the meantime, I'm paying attention to the food/nutritional aspect of all of this. One thing that I've been tasked with for the next couple of weeks is to not make plans with people that revolve around food. Instead of making plans to meet for dinner or lunch or whatever, I'm going to try and make plans to workout together, go to see a movie, head to the museum, listen to live music, etc. You get the point. I'm up for the challenge and can see how this would be beneficial for me.

Wish me luck!
