Please visit my new "page" 101 Things in 1001 days! I have finally made some concrete goals on a concrete timeline. Yes, some are simple, silly things (get a pedicure) but it also points out marathons, competing, and traveling. :-)

Sunday is my first workout with my new coach. I plan on taking a set of progress pictures. I am pretty much starting over in that respect. Its sad, in a way. I was so far and I had made so much progress. Getting married and drinking and eating for a week really derailed that for me. Plus the stress fracture. I would be competing TOMORROW if those things hadn't happened. But no regrets, right? Apparently this was supposed to happen.

I am trying to continuously remind myself of that, but it is tough since I worked hard for a long time to get to where I was...

Speaking of my foot... I am no longer in my boot. I have ordered my new insoles for running. They'll be in in about a week and a half. They are being custom made for me. :-) So although I am allowed to ease back into running a this point, I am holding off, as I think I should wait for my insoles. I don't have any big races, just a 5K and a 10K scheduled for November. So I should be able to ease myself right back into those distances.

On Sunday, I might with Mike for my first training session with him. I am pretty excited about it, and I am looking forward to working out with a trainer for the first time in a pretty long time. I am hoping to get extremely sore! I know he'll want to work upper body because he is anti-injury, and I think wants me to be good with running again before we do lower body.

New diet has been going pretty well, its not perfect, but I am trying not to stress about it too much as it is supposed to be my "offseason" right now. I figure I will be better off after the first of the year if I do try and relax a little right now.
