Slight change of plans

For the next few days there is going to be a lot of this:

And some of this:


It's really not anything serious (and it won't become anything serious! power of positive thinking), but I took a funny step with my left foot towards the end of my long run on Saturday and whatever tendon (ligament? muscle?) that runs up the inside of my leg from my ankle started to bother me during yesterday's track workout.  I'm hoping that by being extra cautious, I'll be back to normal very soon.

Funny observation that came out of my second ever time pool running this morning - I used to wear swimming shirts when I went running so that I people knew I wasn't a runner.  I was a swimmer who was cross training.  Now I wear running shirts to the pool.  How times have changed!

Good call to get into the pool immediately! You'll recover quickly from the niggle and be back on the road in time for a super kickass Philly!

Is that you running in the pool? It looks like a lot of fun! I think you will always be both a runner and a swimmer, Allison. Darn that bike portion on the triathlon! :)

How is the recovery going? Unfortunately, rest IS the best, so I hope you're getting a lot of it!
