Moving right a long.

Monday. I woke up with what I think was pretty good sensation in my right foot. The sensation of rubber bands  stuck around my toes seems to be decreased.  BUT I am also really analyzing each sensation for possible recovery. My body is still sore from Saturday’s excitement. In addition, I seem to have a …

Thursday fun

Well. To jazz up this post I’d love to post a photo of the new beautiful daughter of my Coach. She is PERFECT. I am not biased. All that said, it’s not really the thing to do, she’s not my kid after all.  She is making me smile a lot though. I’m still going through …

Monday

Monday was pretty good. It is now 56 days until my surgery.  When I write it like that it seems like a very long time.  But you know, life throws really hard curve balls sometimes.  Not only did I get hurt, but I have a new job and can’t get unhurt til later.  I need …

Let’s just overdo it…shall we?

Today I walked 50 laps.  It’s 0.71 miles.  All in the pool. I was not nearly as happy as this young lady.  Nor did I look as cute, though I decided what the heck it is December so I wore my ridiculous Snowman swim suit. Yes this is the exact suit. I wore it all …

It’s scheduled.

So Since late October, I’ve been struggling with this incredible injury. It has really been difficult, and kind of affected every aspect of my life.  I’ve never had an injury so totally take over my life. Never. I worry that I am going to lose my job because it is so difficult to be there …

So….how is this going…

Sooo, I had the big injection on Tuesday….and it’s now Saturday. It’s been a very gradual improvement.  And I’ve noted that while I should be responding with gratitude I’m actually responding by forgetting very rapidly how horrible the initial injury was. When I first noted the injury, simply sitting on the side of the bed …

Injection Day

Ok so, I keep thinking “Training Day” Injection day was not near as Epic as the film training day. I decided against the sedation because of how I needed to pay for this.  The Pain guy doesn’t take my insurance and is doing this as a favor to my coach right. It started out well. …

Sick and tired

Of being this person… I don’t want to be the comeback kid with the great attitude in the face of misery. Mostly I just want: I have had such a tough weekend. Firstly. I am BORED. Lots of well meaning people have told me to “explore all those things you were wanting to do but …

And the Beat Goes On….

I am definitely sidelined. It is amazing to me how fast one’s life can change.  One day I’m thinking about how to manage training and my new job and the upcoming Marathon….the next I am deciding how I can manage walking through a store to obtain only essentials and strategically planning my dog walks so …
