Week 2 Of the Recovery Plan And I'm Walking and Running Pain Free

Sorry for being so MIA recently. Lil Man not going to preschool has really thrown off my groove. How did I manage before preschool?!? But also, Hubby being home has changed our family routine also. Oh oh, and add in Mother Nature (hello sub zero temps). So my life has been a little haphazard lately. 

But, Lil Man went back to school yesterday. Hubby is back to a normal work routine. And it appears that Mother Nature felt the need to dump a little snow today, but is warming up to an all day rainfest tomorrow. So things are returning to normal. 

I've been trying to follow the 'recovery' plan as much as possible. I haven't been following it to the letter, but I would say at least 95% which for me is pretty good! 

I moved this Sunday's workout to yesterday. It was my 2nd run outside in the cold. I walked a little less than I was supposed to, and I ran a little more then prescribed, but overall, it went ok. I got in 4 miles. 

I could feel a little pulling on the inclines (this was my first time to run with some inclines). I'm able to walk today WITHOUT pain. And I did my 3 miles of power-walking on the treadmill without any difficulty. 

So I'm hoping that when I get the next couple of weeks of my recovery plan that it will be less walk and more run. I don't mind walking days (like today... where today was just walking). But this walk so many minutes, run so many minutes gets to me mentally. (and it feels like I just get started when I have to walk and then I get super cold before it's time to run again). But we'll see. I know that I don't want to do too much too soon. So I'm trusting 'the plan'. 

But I'm definitely happy to see some progress with the injury recovery!

  1. YAY for pain free running, that is so awesome!

    1. I'm really pleased.. and I REALLY hope I can ramp up the training .. but we'll see what the trainer says ;)

  2. Glad you're feeling better! You'll be there in no time!

    1. Thank you! I'm not a very happy injured runner. So my family is glad I'm back to working out :)

  3. I'm all too familiar with the return to running recovery plan. Be patient and take it slow!! Keep us updated.

  4. It's hard to remain patient ... but stay steady and positive. Healing will occur! :) I know how frustrating it can be.

    1. Yes, going from running a marathon to I can 'barely' run 2 miles is a little humbling

  5. YAY for pain free!! I definitely know how you feel, but you'll get there! :0)

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
