They took away internet access at my work. As the middle schoolers are saying W.T.F/O.M.G This is supposed to be temporary while they get the student computers blocked, but right now it is the entire system. FRIG!
Typically, I get to work a little before the madness begins and read blogs while having my morning coffee. I also read blogs during my break time and sometimes at lunch. Now…well, I have a feeling my reader will never be caught up. That is, until they reactivate the access.
Gosh…I can hardly believe I lived the first 18 years of my life without Internet!
And for some good news…………..I am cleared to work out!
This has nothing to do with training. I am not cleared to start training again and I have to be very careful not to confuse to two. I am cleared to swim but only allowed to do arm drills and legs stretches in the water. No kicking drills and no aqua jogging. I am allowed on the stationary bike but no outdoor biking yet. I can get on the elliptical for short periods and begin walking on the treadmill. And about running…yeah, there is still none of that going on. None. Nada. Zip.
But again, it is all about the baby steps. I won’t lie, it is starting to really get to me. It is hard to go so slow and even harder to be so off my schedule. And it goes without saying that having to bag races sucks! I have found myself feeling sorry for myself over the last week or so, but at the same time I believe in perspective and I constantly remind myself that it could be a lot worse and that I will bounce back from all of this.
Thank you to my faithful readers, you have no idea how much your support means to me. Your comments and personal emails mean a lot and are definitely helping me to keep my head up and stay positive! Keep the good vibes a comin! And while your at it, send some good vibes over to my girl Ulyana who is dealing with a much worse injury and facing surgery. She is one tough chick and she is going to come back from all of this stronger and more awesomer!
And don’t forget…yes, I am going to bug you until Monday…VOTE for the Q&A theme on my sidebar!
