Still Here (again)

Guess who hasn’t posted in awhile?

Besides being unspeakably busy, I was also privately freaking out about a potential injury. See, this is what I do when I might be hurt.

First I run through all the worst-case-scenarios in my head.

Then I talk with my husband about it. He is the audible voice of reason.

Then I get depressed.

Then I take a realistic look at what’s going on.

A couple of years ago I had a tibial stress fracture. In case you’re curious, those suck. They make it so you can’t run for a pretty long time.

Lately I’ve been feeling just a bit of a twinge…but in the exact same spot. Now you see why the freak out.

Yesterday’s 7 miles was completely pain-free, so I’m just taking it one day at a time (and continuing to do calf-raises and take my calcium).

Still here

It’s been busy lately, but I’ve been getting the miles in, mostly.

 

Because of a packed weekend schedule I couldn’t do my long run Saturday or Sunday, so I did it Friday after work. 8 miles after a week of 5 – 11 year olds? Bring it on.
