Bad Foot Pain And Danger Zone Somehow End In Breakeven Day

Day 505

The day’s diet performance was another failure. I started at 78.3 and rose to a max of 80.2 or possibly even 80.3. Coming off a day with a disappointing calisthenics workout instead of jogging, the disappointments are starting to pile up now. I am going to have to be even more diligent going forward because I am going in the wrong direction at this point. Part of it is due to injury, but I have no excuse for diet failures.

I got into the Danger Zone again. This was not the plan. Some of that was soup with quite a bit of broccoli in it. Although something like soup is probably not a bad diet choice overall, it can have a disadvantage when it comes to tracking. The high water content can cause a large initial gain in weight. How quickly this will be digested can vary, so it can temporarily look as if you have eaten too much. The same concept applies if you are eating a lot of vegetables.

Despite all this, I probably did eat a little too much today and am in trouble. My weight was still 79.5 in the morning. That was 1.2 kg over the start. Not good. Even with a sprained ankle, I am forced to run. Otherwise, it is going to be a complete disaster.

I did jog for 90 minutes and have experienced about as much pain as I have experienced while still being able to run. There was a time when my shin and back were hurting so badly that I had to stop running. Today, my right heel was giving me fits. However, I was able to put as little pressure as possible on it and keep going. On the bright side, the part of my ankle that got sprained 2 days ago did not give me much pain. It may have slowed me down some but appears to be healing fast.

Unfortunately, the painful heel does not seem to be getting better and was actually at its worst so far today. But it seems to be a simple matter of dealing with the pain. If I can just deal with that, the heel won’t stop me from exercising.

My run result was a major disappointment. I lost .8 kg only even though my heart rate was a decent 128 at the end. I really needed something better than that and don’t know why a decent run (despite the bad ankle) produced such a low weight loss. After running, I was 78.7 and then 78.6 after the bathroom.

Luckily, I went to the bathroom and lost .3 kg to finish the day. The unlikely final result is that I broke even. On a day in the Danger Zone and having a crappy exercise result, that is a good final showing.
