Anyone who has ever been sidelined, whether by sickness or injury, knows it is a tough task to stay positive. Not being able to work out and worst of all, not being able to run really has me down. I have a bad feeling about my hip but until I know (getting an MRI either Friday, Saturday or Monday…waiting on an appt) I am doing my best to stay positive. Depending on the news, I cannot promise there won’t be a “woe is me” post in the near future. Let’s just hope not.
Therefore, in the spirit of positive thinking, this weeks Three Things Tuesday is focused on things I am looking forward to!
Spring!!!!! They are calling for a “heat wave” this weekend- 55 and SUNNY! Seriously, there has not been a day over 40 since the odd-ball warm week the first of December. It’s March and Spring is on it’s way 🙂
Shamrock Half-Marathon ♣ Whether I can still run this race is yet to be determined, and while that will totally be a bummer, I will not let it ruin the trip! I am still very much looking forward to the road trip/mini-vaca with my two good friends, Colleen and Michele. I have known them both since high school so we go way back! I know that, no matter what, I will have a good time. And if I don’t run, I will be waiting at the finish for my girls 🙂
Phillies Season!! I love me some Phillies baseball. I pretty much watch every game and I am like a dude the way I get all into it. I am known for talking to the TV and cursing out the umps on occasion.
What are some things you are looking forward too?
What do you focus on when you are sidelined from working out? How do you keep from letting negative thoughts take over?
