I'm Sorry But I'm Injured And I Need To Whine

I apologize in advance, I really do. But I just need to whine - just a little. I am SOOOOOOOOOO over being injured. In fact, I'm so over being injured year after year. Since the year after my son was born, every Winter I have been injured. First it was 3 stress fractures in my foot after my 1st half, then it was tendonitis, then it was a torn calf muscle, and now it's a hamstring injury with a side of massive knee pain from trying to cross train. And I was just starting to really enjoy spin class!

I'm writing this with an ice pack on my knee.
And yeah, I've shed a few tears this afternoon - not so much from pain, but from sheer frustration.

I have a call into physical therapy. (I called after hours tonight. So I'm not sure how long it will take for them to get back to me). I don't know if I can get in without a dr's referral. I'm not sure where to start. But I guess I have to start by asking questions.

But I'm frustrated... I was just getting back into the groove of early morning workouts and my mental health was much improved. But it looks like I won't be going to spin class in the am. I'm just hoping I can walk without pain. Because by this afternoon, well I'm limping.

Anyway, just needed to vent for a moment. Thanks for listening to me whine.

I'll let you know what happens with PT/Dr appointments as soon as I figure it out!

  1. Have you thought about working with a trainer? I've had my share of injuries...then last year I went to work with my CrossFit trainer ( who is also a corrective exercise specialist). OMG what a difference she's made in my life. I've been running for over 20 years and this was the best year, running-wise, of my life.

    1. :( Yeah.. just FINISHED working with a trainer... got injured at the very end of marathon training ...

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... 

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.

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?
