Books and fatty food!

Tuesday is my rest day.  Which worked out well last night.  First off my left leg/foot has been a little achy.  Feels like I am getting a touch of peroneal tendonitis.  this is really really not a good thing but it is slowly feeling better and has been like this for a couple weeks now.  I am trying to rest it as much as possible but still get my runs in.  I am pretty sure this stems from my severe ankle injury last summer that I have never really taken the time to strengthen and let heal properly.  I know…smart move right?  I am working on finding a PT near me that will be able to work with me to get it taken care of asap.  I am currently just waiting for them to call so I can set up the appointment.  Hopefully everything works out and I don’t have to take a bunch of time off.  That would just kill my nerves!       
A group I am involved in decided we wanted to start a monthly book club!  We already have made plans for lots of races this year (they are the ones I am running with Sunday), and we wanted to expand on that.  We want to read books that are fitness related.  We are going to read a book a month and for our March book we chose Running Like a Girl: Notes on Learning to Run.  I found this very fitting since I have been thinking about the harsh realities of running lately.  I am still very much so a positive person about running but I am not shy about putting it out there.  I have nothing to hide in running and this book is another very cool reality about that. 
I am really excited about reading new books about health and fitness each month.  I will be able to learn and explore more aspects about the fitness world and that is truly a great feeling.  Sharing this with others makes it even more beneficial.  If you would like to join in, let me know!  We will have a Facebook page specifically for this and would be happy to have more people involved!
Today I have a 5 mile run on schedule.  I am going to take it easy and make sure to foam roll my left calf and quad first.  This has been helping tremendously in not having much pain.
I have also officially decided I eat like crap.  I should do a better job but I am starting to let bad foods creep back into my diet and shouldn’t.  I am going to start making sure I am more focused on my intake. Yesterday for example, I drank around 800 calories!!!  What???  That is just not cool…but it is also not like I didn’t know what I was doing.  I willing took these in and enjoyed them more than I should have.  I used to eat very clean but I am letting my lunches get the best of me recently and need to stop!!
Notice the lack in pics…my phone is full and my camera is not charged….25 pts for blogger of the month!!
