recovery/recharge gone wrong

To start I had a very low mileage week. I finished off the week at 28km it was not much and that is exactly what I was aiming for. I did 3 short 5ks and then 13k at a reasonable pace of 5:47min per km. I was feeling good, legs were feeling refreshed. I focused a lot of my time on stretching, strengthening work and rolling.

The day after my easy long run, I started to feel some pain on the bottom of my foot that carried up towards my Achilles. NOWWWWW it hurts to walk, so a little worried but I am hoping it is just a strain that will get better with time off. Going to take it easy again this week and probably not run for now. Just going to leave it to feeling for now. If things do not improve I will have to head over to the doctor to get it checked out.

Sometime it can definitely feel as if I am prone to injuries no matter what I do. Not sure anymore because I definitely do not feel like I am over working myself for the most part. I am alittle frustrated but I just have to go with the flow and keep looking forward to what is next. Definitely anxious to see how things go after this week but I will keep you guys updated.

For now I will leave you guys with that. As always, thank you for reading and I hope that everyone is getting their mileage in.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
