4 days to Cobra 70.3 – I injured my heel :(

Wednesday is our usual run day, but since typhoon “Gener” seemed to have found it more fun in the Philippines and stayed a little longer, our coach suggested we do our program on a treadmill. However, since it was just drizzling in our part of Manila, my husband and I decided to do the run drills in our village. It was a 10 minute warm up, 6 x 400, in my case sub 6:00 to sub 5:30 only, with 400m recovery in between, then finally a 10 min cool down. My run went okay and even paced up to sub 5 though the road was slippery with the leaves and broken branches. At the end of my cool down, I felt a slight pain on my left heel. Ouch! It was from an old injury I got several months back when I did a wrong jump to avoid stepping on floor tiles freshly installed.

So Thursday was INTERCARE to the rescue.  My heel was swollen but ultrasound has been done and medication prescribed.  The staff promised I’d be ready to run by Sunday….

Ice ice baby was one of the prescription

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
