Sorry for the lack of posting. I just haven’t been doing anything differently lately. Lots of cross training. Lots of wishing I was running.
I have been dabbling in a few Crossfit workouts. I know I was the last to hear about this exercise program, but I just started incorporating some of their workouts about three weeks ago. However, I’m not the best at being dedicated to my strength programs, so I’m on and off with Crossfit too. After the 400 meter lunge workout on Tuesday, in which I guessed the distance and completed 380 lunges without stopping, I am still RIDICULOUSLY sore today. As in I woke up every time I tried to roll over in bed last night because merely pushing my legs against the sheets HURT SO BAD.
I then proceeded to have nightmares about doing my morning bike workout with such sore legs. It wasn’t pretty. So, long story short I didn’t go to the gym this morning. I made Matt breakfast instead. That’s a good thing too.
Also, sometime during my painful night I must have become frustrated with my watch and took it off. See, my watch has been coming apart piece by piece since starting a lot more training in the pool. The chlorine has made quick work of my poor watch strap. Last night was apparently the final straw. I went to put it back on this morning, but realized I had lost the last part of my strap. It was twisted into my bed sheets.
Here’s all the pieces. It has come apart one piece at a time, but I’ve saved them as if there is a way to put them back together.
I kind of feel like this today. Just a little bit detached. A little defeated. It’s March and I’m still not running.
Yes, I got an MRI about a week ago. Guess what? It didn’t show anything. Conclusion: Normal right foot.
I should be totally psyched, right? But I’m not, I still feel like I just don’t know anything. I mean, I couldn’t have made all this up. What about all that pain?! The ache, the tingling that came back after that hike a month ago?
I’ve been pain free for about 2 weeks, but I do not feel safe to start running. What’s wrong with me? A clean x-ray and MRI are just making me feel more confused instead of reassured.
It’s a rainy island morning here. Normally I hate the rain, but here on the island it is refreshing. Maybe it’s because I know the sun comes out literally seconds after the rain stops.
