PM: 7.3 miles in 65' on the treadmill

Foot felt awkward during a few points, but after 25-30' felt completely normal. Preemptively icing while I grade now. I didn't have any issues today at home. I have been wearing shoes in the house. Outside I have been wearing a pair of aluminum toe Red Wings (which look like athletic shoes) that I got when I worked at the Depot. They are stiff, built up, wide, and if I stub my toe the area is protected.

PM: 5.5 miles in 50'

I did a few harder strides because the Drop Kick Murphys came on Pandora. Foot was solid. Megan and I drove to Toledo to watch her brother coach a high school basketball team. The star player had 3 good dunks. He's really quite an athlete. Highly coordinated, unselfish, and can play a number of roles. He's going to play in college, but I can't remember where he accepted.

Submitted grades around 1:30 this morning.

PM: 7 slow miles in 70'. HR around 148 average. Rough!

Didn't feel like running after we got back but knew I needed to. Ran on the treadmill. Foot felt really solid despite no pain reliever until after. Feels good. Still icing just in case there is swelling present that doesn't manifest outward symptoms.

I really wanted to run outside today, but am keeping with the treadmill until I am sure the foot is clear.

PM: 7.2 miles on the treadmill in 70'

I ran on the toy treadmill. It doesn't even do math right, so I am guess its calculations and distance are more suspect than normal.
