AM 73/100% 5 Easy miles, up and out early for work. Trying to clear the mind... 

PM- 85ish- 8.2 Miles w/8x800 (400 recoveries)  6:35, 6:36, 6:40, 6:41, 6:52, 6:41, 7:40, 7:23 - as you can tell I was getting tired and thirsty, those last recoveries were pretty dog slow too. I really just wanted to stretch the legs since Saturday did not go as planned.

It's going to be a long week of work.

Was going to be a big workout day, after a mile something was wrong so I shut it down. To the docs Thursday morning. Leg and foot pain.

AM- Doc's. Some news I knew was coming. Left foot - plantar fasciitis. I would only casually mention the pain thinking if I didn't talk about it I could handle it, it has gotten pretty painful at times. The upper left legs fortunately is a few pulled muscles and ruptured blood vessels. So he told me two weeks off, I could bike and water run, but we would re-evaluate then. I explained I had the marathon in 9 weeks and asked if I could make it worse if I ran on it. Long story short we agreed on option B- I begin physical therapy, he allows me some minor pain meds, I keep training and deal with some of the pain. As soon as the race is over, 2 weeks off. 

PM- 93/hot - 10 easy miles, had lots left in the tank at then end, if the park did not close at dark I would have been tempted to push more. Saw some deer and a baby one at that, plus some baby raccoons. Hurt early on, but as i got going it felt better.
