Not sure if I got the job, but my leg feels better

Well, I had a 36-minute phone interview Monday for a part-time writing position with a local business/health outfit. Thought I had a good interview... BUT..... there seemed to be a misunderstanding on one of the questions I was asked. In a nutshell, it was like the guy asked the question in French and I answered in German. Ugggg. I know it was bad because the guy finally said, "Well... ok, let's move on to something else."

Eeek.

So, maybe I didn't get that job. But I did get a nice letter from a hiring manager at another company (that I won't name). The manager, in part, said she was sorry to hear that I was laid off and was going to show my resume around to some other managers.

Whether this company hires me or not (and they do have an opening I qualify for) - that was the nicest thing any employer has said to me.

INJURY FRONT: Well, I just couldn't help myself. I know I said I was going to take Monday off because of some leg pain that I was having. But I awoke Monday down in the dumps a little (job, son, hurt leg) and figured I just needed to get out of the house and get some adrenaline flowing through my body, some good old endorphins.

I strapped on my shoes and was just going to walk fast to get some blood moving to my sore leg. Then I started a slow shuffle, then a slow jog. There was a little pain, but not as much as I thought there would be. And in fact, because I ran my 15 miles on Saturday very conservatively and took Sunday off, my legs were actually feeling fresh. Very fresh.

So.... my run turned from slow shuffle, see if I can get through the pain to ... a marathon pace workout. And the funny thing is, the faster I went, the better my leg felt. I wound up doing 7 miles with the last 6 right at marathon pace (between 7:34 and 7:44 min/mile). My leg was pretty much pain free after the run, which was not the way I thought I'd feel, but I wasn't complaining. Thanks for the idea about heat/ice Allison.

I'll continue to ice and heat and roll my soleus muscle and hopefully I'm totally pain free in a few weeks.
