Swan Lake Forecast

Forgot to add my Swan Lake Marathon forecast to my earlier post and I kind of have enjoyed posting the forecasts as they are a fun thing to look back on. It's safe to say that for previous races the forecasts have changed quite a bit.

The weather looks ok which means it will change then again if it looked bad it might change. The marathon starts a6 6:00 am so I am guessing it will be fairly comfortable at least for the first part of the race.

Swan Lake Marathon -- Viborg, SD
Sunday, Jun 14
High: 79 °F RealFeel®: 81 °F
Warmer with times of sun and clouds; an afternoon shower or thunderstorm

On the running front, I did get in around 10 miles this afternoon, the feet did hurt at times but it was mostly manageable, the one nice thing is that I get pain from a variety of spots in both feet/ankles and then an occasional Achilles shot on the right. I did do an ice soak afterward which I plan on continuing all week. So with a little luck things will heal quickly or enough for Sunday.

I debated going into Lyn Lake Chiropractic for some PT but I decided not to. Mainly because of the lack of time and it can be a bit embarrassing or presumptuous to walk in and say "Hi, Dr. Kevin please fix me, I have a marathon in 6 days, yes it has been a few years since I was last in". He will then ask how long it has been hurting and at least this time I can say only about 4 weeks. In the past it's usually been 4 months or longer, then again I don't plan on going in so maybe history will repeat. In the past Dr. Kevin has helped me for a variety of issues and he does offer many things besides the chiropractic stuff (meaning normal PT stuff - ultrasound, electrical stimulation, ice compression, etc....) and the combo usually does the trick I especially have liked his ice boot therapy which worked great for a past ankle sprain which led to plantar fascia issues in the other foot. You know that sounds almost familiar, naw, couldn't be.

Thanks for the nice comments, I am pretty sure it will work itself out just fine. My plan is take my time, relax and soak up the sun.
