Happy Monday! First, congrats to my
high school elementary school buddy Tricia on her BQ at the Coastal Delaware Marathon! Second, congrats to Jackie on her win at the GW Parkway Classic 5K. They are both a great source of motivation. Speaking of inspiring, did anyone watch the London Marathon this past weekend?

My plan was to run 2 miles today, but I went to an impromptu happy hour instead (iced tea for me). I figured I will be on social lockdown when marathon training ramps up, so I enjoyed a nice afternoon with my co-workers.
Friday 4/21 – Rest Day
Thought about going for a 2 miler, but it looked like it was going to pour outside. Of course it didn’t and I regretted my decision. Oh well.
Saturday 4/22 – 3 miles | 16:04 min/mile
I was SO looking forward to this run -I wanted to see how much I improved from the previous week. I started out with tight calves/shins – nothing out of the ordinary, it was the body saying “uhhh warm up, Jennifer”. That went away after a mile, but then I started feeling a little tingling sensation in my left ankle/top of my foot. It was an odd feeling, but I figured I could press on since it did not hurt. Then right around mile 2 my foot was numb. It wasn’t the same type of numbness when you sit on your foot, it was less prickly. I tried running it off, but decided to stop once I couldn’t feel my footing,. I didn’t want to sprain or twist it. The numbness lasted the entire last mile. Weird, huh? Thanks for all your tips/suggestions on my IG post. Hopefully it doesn’t happen again.
After my run, I met my friend Jenny for a nice brunch at Pearl Dive, we had some Mopey bread. It was soft and had a hint of orange flavoring. Sooo good!
I decided to make Sunday a rest day because of my foot. Plus I was traveling for most of the day. Can you guess where?
How was your week?
Has your foot ever gone numb while running?
