Kyle's Broken Foot :(

Since I didn't do much blogging last week, I didn't write about my middle son, Kyle, who runs for Ohio Wesleyan. Last Thrusday evening, we get a call from Kyle saying that his right foot is swollen, he can't walk on it and he wasn't able to finish their interval workout on the track that afternoon. At this point, he is very upset and I'm trying to do everything I could do to keep him calm! The next morning, he went for x-rays and sure enough, he broke the third metatarsal on the top of his foot. At this point, he is wearing a boot and is on crutches :( He will be out for 4-6 weeks. No running but he can swim, bike and lift. The outdoor track season, I guess is out of the question, but I'm sure he will heal and come back stronger than before. He is just upset because he ran one outdoor meet and did well in the 800 with a time of 1:56.7. He was looking for big things this spring but will have to wait until next season. He seems to be handling everything pretty well, although I think it is hard for him to see all his friends running. He's a Lemke, he is tough and he will be just fine! I believe, disappointments make you stronger!! Love you, Kyle!

Today, I woke up at 7am and got my lift done before I went out to run. I went down to the track, to run with the LHS track team. Ran 4.5 miles with my friend, Haley Young and finished up by myself to get in 10 miles. Felt tired and stiff but I need to keep the miles up for MMT 100 training!! Of course, that wasn't enough, so crazy me went to the Y and swam 1 mile. I hear the trails calling my name for tomorrow :)

Sorry to hear about Kyle's broken foot. I broke my 2nd metatarsal last year and had to stay off running for 8 - 9 weeks. I went to spinning class in the interim and learned it was a GREAT workout. Henceforth, I am adding that to my training. In other news, I did not make it into the Mt Washington race this year, but am setting other race goals for 2010 instead! Best --
