This whole post is whiny. Whiny whiney whiner. That is your warning interwebs.
1. I skipped the gym yesterday. And today. But I had a very valid reason. Kids, heed this warning: do not attempt to carry a full ice cooler for four miles. You will be in some serious pain. I know this because I carried a full ice cooler up and down Broad Street and now, I am in so much pain. Ouch! So yeah, since I can hardly move my shoulders/neck/arms, swimming has been out of the question. Hopefully, I will get there tomorrow.
2. Weekly hip update! I definitely pissed off my hip on Sunday as well. That is for sure. My PT said that she doesn’t think I did any damage and that it is probably just aggrevated. That is the good news. The bad news is…no running for five days. Or biking. CRAPSTER. Two steps forward and one step back! I feel like I am always starting over. Don’t get me wrong, I am glad it is nothing serious, and I have no intentions of pushing myself into a re-injury, but frig already!!!! I just want to be better and all I did was get myself five days of unwanted rest and another two weeks of PT. At least I can swim…if my arms ever decide to work again!
3. I once again am up in the air about a race. This time, a 5k. It is in two weeks and I know I will be prepared, even if I am taking the next five days off. My PT actually thinks it is a good idea because I need to have a goal in mind. Of course, I am so not allowed to run it completely…just jog. My goal is to do the entire 3.1 in 12:00/miles. And I know I can do it. Truth is, I am just back and forth because I am afraid. That is the honest truth. Onelittletrigirl is being a fraidy cat!
Ack! These past 10 weeks have been crazy up and down. And emotional roller coaster for sure!
Hey 2010, I hope you are listening…I am ready for you to get better. Now. Kthanksbye!
