Weight I have lost

Black and Blue

So for this whole week, my toe nails have hurt. They feel bruised. I finally took the nail polish off and aha! Black and blue toenails on both big toes. Seriously, how can I get all the way through training and then get the toenail thing during the race. All I can think, because of the rain my feet were wet and sliding in the shoe. I knew my feet had rubbed on my socks as the the socks had coral nail polish (my polish last week) all over the socks.

Oh well. I took a picture , but I'll spare you. Unless you are a FB friend. Then it is on my "Running injuries" photo album. Although they aren't as dark as other people's bruised toenails.

I ran 2 miles yesterday. 24:30. It felt good to get back to running. So of course I didn't do it this morning. I have equated all the training and the actual event to getting married/planning a wedding. Once it is all done, then what? I know, another one (half-mary, not wedding). Right now though funds aren't in the cards for that. And I still have to sign up for the triathlon since my great aunt gave me the $$ for the entry fee (her sister (my grandmother) had Alzheimer's so I will do the Tri2Remember Tri again).

The numbers for April are in. I ran 90+ miles. I'm shocked by this. And I lost 5.9 pounds. Woohoo!

First!

Wow on the mileage and weight loss. I'll bet you feel awesome! And a half. You've had quite the month. I hope your bruised toenails heal without toenails falling off. Ick - specially on the big toes. I lost a nail last summer and just painted my toe til it grew back. :-)

Sounds like April was an awesome month for you! Just found your blog -- LOVE the blog title. Will be tuning in! Have you tried using BodyGlide? Will help prevent those painful blisters/chafing due to HRM (and other) straps.

90 miles!!! That's awesome. I think you SHOULD put your black and blue toenail pics on your blog -- they're badges of honor among us runners.

Nice numbers sista. Just keep painting the nails. You don't need nails anyway!
