Well here we go. My first injury in ages. I mean ages. I’m almost ashamed to mention it beause I’ve been so injury-free through my last couple half marathons and racing seasons…I just don’t know, why now?
Last night I iced them (did the whole RICE) thing, but I can still feel them throbbing and can barely walk. This happened once last summer too, but you all know how hard it is to take time off from running when you are in training! Ugh. Any input? I know I shouldn’t have trudged through my 35 minute tempo run last night but I can be a fiesty little brat sometimes. I also think I dropped a nasty word when I had to stop for a sec and make sure I could still stand when I stopped moving. For some reason the faster I ran, the pain seemed to lessen (maybe just numb). A little old man in his flower bed, doing some gardening sure got a suprise. I better take a different route for awhile.
On vacation this week with my precious daughter. We day tripped to Montreal and got some school shopping done, practiced diving, got her hair cut and spent loads of quality time together, biking and chatting and re-organizing her closet (her choice, she loves that stuff). And she got a new Shrek Opi nailpolish. Another variant of blue! I love staycations. Today is our loungy, rest day. Stepson is at his mom’s for two weeks and then he’ll be back with us. Our kids start school a couple days after Labor Day so it’s not all that far off now. Are you done your school shopping? My daughter isn’t so about it this year. She got a few things, but she wanted enough to start out and then buy more throughout the fall. Much different than kindergarten when she started with over 35 outfits. Oh those little Gymboree outfits with matching shoes and hair accessories. Those were the days. Cardigan, tights, skirt, sweater and headband…all matchy-matchy.
