AM: 6.15 mi around the lake.  Lower outside of right foot hurt the first mile and then went away as the run progressed.  I'm sure it will hurt after the cooldown.  I remember having this problem when I ran without orthotics.  Today I wore orthotics.

PM: Easy 5.85 mi.  Foot is a little sore afterward.  No orthotics.

Nice run even with a sore foot. How's Post-Boston feeling on your body.

The bottom of my left foot is a little sore after and before my run but not during. Hopefully it's not PF, but it's not enough to affect the running, and it's not really a bad pain.

You also just ran Boston so it could still be some recovery involved in that area.

I'm buying new wheels for my truck please cast your vote on my blog which wheels you like best. I'd appreciate it.

My body is feeling very good after Boston. The foot problem comes up every time I try to move away from orthotics. I just need to be more patient with working off of those. Surprisingly, the foot now feels better than it did this morning before the run. I'll check out the wheels.
