Training for 9/19/13

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:30 pm

Hard to believe, but it was four years ago today that Clark powered through his massive hangover from his bachelor party (it still boggles my mind they waited to do that until the night before the wedding!) so we could finally make it official.


I took today off work. This afternoon, Clark and I are going surfing in Assateague, after he buys me a wetsuit. (After all, neoprene is the traditional fourth anniversary gift, right?) Tonight, we’re going back to the Brick Hotel in Georgetown, where our reception was held, for dinner. We’ve done this every year on our anniversary, and I like the tradition.

Today is just as gorgeous outside as Sept. 19, 2009, was. I did some strength training this morning, where something encouraging happened — last week, I couldn’t do lunges because they bothered my right foot so much, but today I could do two sets of 10 while holding a 25-lb. plate! I also did push-ups, ab exercises, invisible chair-sitting and lifted weights.

After all that, I took my bike out for a 10-mile ride. When I got back home, I did all those barefoot exercises (twice in the same week!) and a lot of stretching, and then iced my foot for 20 minutes.

It’s feeling better today, but still not good. I’m really hoping I’ll be running again by this time next week.



  1. Glad to hear that your foot is feeling better! And… Happy Anniversary!! Wow – four years?? Where did the time go? Oh, and we need to set up a date to run and get some sushi – once your foot starts feeling better (obviously). I’m thinking around the beginning of October…
