Injured But Not Out

Just a quick update, after my short run last week, and the snow shoveling, my hip was very angry with me. I wasn't just having pain, I was limping with pain. So, I've decided I've got to give it some rest. That being said, I'm thinking maybe 2 weeks off of running. If I can power walk without pain, I might not go quite two weeks. But right now I'm saying two weeks.

So, I'm using this time to cross train.

It's still trial and error to see what irritates it, but so far I can bike. And I can row.

I do plan to try the pool this week also.

And, I've found that massage also helps. So I'm trying be be faithful with stretching and rolling. I am using the hydro massage bed at planet fitness when I'm there.

So, I'm not currently running. And my 10K may be in jeopardy, but I'm not out. I'm going to give my body the rest it needs, and focus on getting stronger in all areas. I'm more than just a runner. I'm also a mom, a wife, an athlete and someone who is striving to be the best version of me.

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.

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?
