Target Practice Friday #29

borrowed stole the idea for the Target Practice Friday series from the ladies over at Fit.Fun.Femme.  I do things a little differently, but ultimately it’s where I share my progress on my short term goals, a.k.a targets.

Marathon - Confession: I have not ran once this week since my 18 miles last weekend. The reason I didn’t run was due to severe heel pain in my right foot. However, I went to the doctor’s yesterday and he said that I have retrocalcaneal bursitis, which can be treated with good old fashioned ibuprofen and icing several times a day.

Even though I wasn’t running this week, I did swim…


and strength train.

I am going to attempt a slow 16 miles this weekend since the doc gave me the all-clear.

Improve Pace - The only improvement here is that my 18 miles were at a 10:40 minute pace instead of a 11 minute pace! Color me surprised!

Handstand - I worked on headstand pulsing this week. Fun stuff!

Eating Clean - My focus was on eating well this week. I think I was successful in eliminating excess snacks and choosing healthy meal options.

For funsies, what’s your fitness name?

Happy weekend!

  1. Ouch, that heel pain sounds killer! Hope that clears up soon! My mom just went to the doctor today for really bad back/hip pain, and they diagnosed her with bursitis too. They gave her a prescription medication to help the swelling. I’m hoping that helps because she’s really been suffering with it for a few weeks now.

    Awesome job on the handstand!!

  2. You are SO smart to listen to your body – I find it almost impossible to get through a marathon training cycle without some kind of “injury” (but hopefully not too bad, and for some reason I’m fine with half marathons). As you know I dealt with it yesterday too – feeling somewhat better today. And yes – I am Sexy Butt. NICE. Haha!
