Limpin' along..

Hiya Everyone! I am actively training for the Breast Cancer 3 Day walk! Saturday I walked 17 miles!! I got up with my teammate at 4:30 so we could start walking at 5. It took us 7 hours and 50 minutes to complete 17 miles but we did it! My teammate planned the route very well except for the very end. The last 2 miles had no bathroom. I could be heard going down the street praying very loudly "Please DEAR GOD let there be a church!! PLEASE?!?! PLEASE?!?!" Luckily, as we are in Utah, there WAS a church and it was open. You have never seen such a pathetic person as a woman who is about to pee her pants!

When we were done my foot was in some pain. So I took a bit of a break and took a short five mile walk. I woke up this morning and couldn't put weight on my foot. The insta-care told me it was plantar fasciitus. From my understanding, it is basically tendonitis of the foot. Boo. Here's hoping for a fast recovery. Until then I will be best friends with an ice pack and an ace bandage.

I am four weeks from my walk and I am starting to get nervous. I am still determined to make 60 miles in three days. Seattle, here I come!!!

17 miles! That's awesome! Do take care of your foot and don't push yourself too much - sounds like your doing great so far!
