2 very gentle easy miles on the tail this morning. No pain, but was getting less comfortable the more I ran.  It will be interesting to see how it feels tomorrow.

I decided, with my cut back on running from this injury, it would be a good time to start doing my core work again so I spent about 20 minutes doing core work after the run.

so whats wrong with your foot? how did you injure it? What?

Tom, I'm not exactly sure exactly when I injured it. It's just one of those running injuries. I'm not even exactly sure what's wrong. I just know that when I run on it, it hurts after a few miles and then the next day it really hurts. If I take a week off it feels fine,then I try and run and start the whole cycle over. I guess I should try taking 2 weeks off this next time.
