What Being Injured Is Giving Me

*This post contains affiliate links.*
I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

It's All Fun And Games Until

It's all fun and games until the stomach bug hits your house and your entire schedule gets rearranged. Yep, our first sickness of the school year. Lil Man's first day missed. Thankfully the stomach bug was very short-lived. He was actually almost back to normal in just a few short hours.

But because of germs (his and me just being paranoid of picking up other germs) we didn't make it to the gym all week. He was well enough to go, but yeah... I have an issue with germs.. so we skipped.

I was able to get in some treadmill runs, and a run here or there with Miles.

But overall my week felt really off because I didn't make it to the gym. I guess I'm just a gym rat.

However, I guess that I can't say that it wasn't an active week, because as I type this I'm at 91,560 steps for the week. And technically the day isn't over yet.

And after finally getting to the gym yesterday, then outside for a short bike ride, my legs were feeling it. So I was happy to recover in my Zensah recovery tights. I wore them all afternoon and my legs were much happier by the end of the day. It was warm enough to sit out on the deck and enjoy some quiet time.

I did however get my fastest treadmill mile this week.

That I was super happy about it. Now, I just need to work on stretching that mile into 2 and so on. We shall see.

I just planned out my week with family time / workouts / blogging  and so forth. Here's to hoping everyone stays well!
