Chicago Training Week 7 Recap

A day late, but better late than never! Last week was a cutback Week and the first week in a while that my foot completely stopped hurting! I did a few things that I think helped. 

1. Stopped wearing my hokas 

2. Also stopped wearing my Nike Pegasus shoes on long runs 

3. Bought some saucony rides for long runs 

4. Oofos recovery sandals!! 

5. Stretching and foam rolling my calves and legs 

By the time I made it to the doctor my foot didn’t hurt, which always happens to me but either way I am just happy it’s resolved!
