2 Miles, The Bad and The Good

Just wanted to say thank you for watching my vlogs! I am having a lot of fun making and editing them :).

I love that you watch them while you’re having coffee in the morning, doing your makeup, during lunch, etc. That’s when I watch vlogs too! Don’t forget, you can subscribe to my channel here.

In this latest vlog I go for another two miler; there was some good stuff and some bad stuff that happened during this run. The good part is that I made it the full two miles and I did it faster than last week without even trying.

The bad news is that my left foot did go numb around 1.72 miles in. This is definitely not something I was expecting post-surgery. In fact numbness is the biggest indicator that something isn’t right. Before I had the surgery my doctor told me explicitly that I should not try to run through numbness because it could be masking something that leads to permanent damage.

I spent a good amount of time thinking about this, and I believe I know why it went numb. I get into the details in my short vlog. Hopefully tonight’s run goes a lot smoother! I think it will :).

Do you ever experience numbness when you run?

    So not running, but my carpal tunnel syndrome occasionally causes my pinky and ring finger to go numb. It was super concerning the first time it happened…now it is just annoying (and fortunately only happens like once a year). Hope tonight’s run goes better!

    No running numbness for me. Usually just my legs barking at me! My feet do go numb though when I use the elliptical. I have no idea why, but it bugs the heck out of me. I haven’t heard of anyone else ever having that problem. Hope you figure yours out!
