I'm currently in a bit of a post-vacation slump. Especially since I went to the doctor today & found out that I won't be running for a minimum of two more weeks, and need to see a physical therapist. Tears were shed, and I'm totally freaked out by the possibility of not running for a minimum of a month. I know - overreaction, anyone? But, it's hard to express how I feel about it. Running makes me feel healthy and confident, helped me lose weight, and really started to define me. I'm worried I'm going to gain weight, lose muscle tone, not be able to run the half marathons I've been training for, you know, all kinds of sucky things. I know I can come up with a plan and get past this, but I'm in a little freak out mode for today. Tomorrow I'll kick start Operation Regroup.
I'm going to continue to do strength training (I'm approved to do core & upper body), as well as look into swimming. I'm not a swimmer. At all. This should be interesting. Also, I have to wear running shoes every day to work, according to the doctor. Brace yourselves for some Fashion Don'ts. :-)
And, just for fun, here's me at work yesterday. I like to call this - our flight was delayed seven hours on Monday & I got home at midnight & didn't bother to unpack, find my makeup/straightener/or clearly my sanity by Tuesday am - picture. You're welcome.
