I’m recovering at a remarkably slow pace. Hope no one is holding their breath.

I’m still here. 

What are you guys up to?

Saturday I went and got a sports massage and holy wow did my leg hurt on Sunday. Like…

just wrap it up and limp around on crutches hurt.

Of course, I didn’t wrap it up and limp around on crutches.

But I wanted to. Ugh. It hurt.

I worked around the house and just got stuff done and then on Monday I had to work a full day to cover for someone.

So I went to the gym at the end of the day and did the elliptical for three miles/30 minutes.

I just wanted to loosen up the leg a little

I’ll admit…I was a little afraid.  So I didn’t foam roll.

nstead I came home and put on my beloved sweatshirt and huddled in the kitchen and took care of paperwork. And maybe felt a little bad. But mostly not because if I allow it, it will happen. So I just didn’t think about it.

But today there is no backing down. It needs to get done so it’s getting done. 

I figured I’d yoga today, too.  I think I’ll have more time tonight. Slightly…

I’m incredibly busy this week in prep for the race I’m not going to be able to run..

And graduation prep.

And general life busyness.

I’m tired.

I’m ready for the flight to Pittsburgh so I can sleep.
