Tonight Susannah and I went for a 42-minute run and I definitely was feeling very blah. I feel like lately I've been having a lot of doubts while I run. Like if running for "only 42-minutes" is difficult, how am I going to be able to keep it up for 26.2 miles? I really do try and push those doubts out of my mind, since I know they do no good, but the doubts do creep in.

It's always nice to stop working for the day and get outside and run by the ocean and in lovely Santa Monica. Our route took us past the promenade and then along Ocean Avenue while we did a big loop and ended up back at Katie's apt. Today's workout was 4 run/2 walk x 7. It was hard. Even if the route was beautiful, it was just a hard run. My body is feeling really blah. I am not taking care of myself in a nutritious way and I know that's not making any of my running easier. In fact, I know it's making it more difficult.

On top of me just feeling generally blah during my runs, my plantar fasciitis is still not totally better (might help if I actually wear the boot on a consistent basis) and I'm starting to feel some slight shin pain in my right shin. And (yes, sigh, and) I'm feeling a weird pain on the top of my left foot.

Here I come!
