No Fun.

my week = no fun.

i miss swimming.
i miss running.
i miss being able to train!!!

this morning i headed back to ed's shenangian's for an alternative workout - lots of arms and abs. i was excited thinking of being active and with my girls. unfortuantely, this did irritate the foot. but i'm tough, right?!

i get home and get my day going. then i don't what i was doing while drying my hair, but i tweaked my foot somehow and great scott i thought the world was coming to an end. it felt like i ripped the stitches out. ya know the pain when your stomach jsut pits and you are a little nauseated. yeah. no fun.

i have been hoping to get a normal shoe on (although it's been nice wearing flip flops to work everyday). i really am hoping to get a ride in tomorrow afternoon. let's cross our fingers and toes that i can move closer to getting back in the swing of things.

stitches = no fun

(yes i am cranky about this)

It is hard - but let those stitches heal - and then you'll be back, rested and ready to GOOO!

Oh, Fave!! I'm sorry! Isn't it weird how emotionally difficult it is to be forced not to train vs. choosing not to train?? I've had some injuries before that have taken me out of commision for a while so, take it from me, let your body heal!! Work on the mental aspects of training. Read articles on how to focus and calm prior to a race, or try to focus on improving your race nutritional plan, or do exactly as you're doing and focus on the things you still can do. Just hang in there and you'll be back stronger than ever in no time!!
