Recovering from my long run.

Hey America,

Well, I hobbled around the rest of the day Saturday and Sunday too, but my muscles are pretty much recovered now. Although there does seem to be something wrong with my foot. There's some pain on the outside edge of my foot, when I stand or walk for long periods of time, and I've had something similar about 6 months ago on my other foot. I searched all the right messageboards to figure out what it is, but no one seems to describe it the same way. Last time I blamed it on a new pair of shoes that I had, and I do have a fairly new pair of shoes right now, so perhaps that is the problem again. One of these days I'll learn to stick with the brand of shoes that work (I like to try different shoes each time). So I've been icing it a little bit, but I am such a pansy. It's too cold for my poor little feets.

I saw on Jon Walk's blog, that there is going to be a houstonbloggers page and logo which is really cool, and I'm glad to see that my name is included there.

On another note, one person has already noticed the new feature for the blog. A "One Question Poll," with this weeks question asking whether or not replenishing glycogen during your long run is essential to finish strong, or is counterproductive to your training. You can submit your opinion if you have one.

So far the leading answer is "Keith sucks."

Poor feets. Perhaps you will have one of those URIs: "unspecified running injuries" that eventually seem to resolve on their own.

By the way.. where'd you go to school in Florida?

I just ran 21 miles on Sunday. It sounds like I am experiencing the same type of pain on the outer area of my foot. A pain I have never had before...but I have also never run as far as I did. Did you ever find out what it was? How long did it take for it to go away? Any suggestions
