Counting down….

Not much new to report here…. Two more days until I can run.  I was cleared to try tomorrow, but seeing as we are about to have another storm and tomorrow is supposed to be cold and windy, the doc suggested I wait it out until Tuesday.

Prescription:  2-3 slow, flat miles

I realized tonight the biggest thing I have missed about my runs has been taking pictures.  My feet take me to some pretty cool places around the seacoast and I am looking forward to exploring a lot more!  This is still one of my favorite pictures:

North Hampton

So I am pleased to report the following about my “rehab” period (about three weeks):

– I haven’t gained any weight.  Holding steady at 132.

– I have learned a lot about hamstrings and the muscle healing process.

– I love electric stimulation even more than before!

– Heat does work!

– I have some new recipe ideas (I will post as I try them)

– I have committed to adding a weekly yoga class to my routine

The not so good about this rehab:

– My skin has FREAKED OUT!  I have been acne prone for the last year or so (about when I started the running) but it was under control and looked great.  No sweat = clogged pores and acne.  What the hell!

– I’m BORED and losing motivation daily

– I miss my running partners!

– I miss the gym (Body Pump, Arc, Combat)

– My running clothes are too clean and taunting me daily… as are my shoes

– I need my laughter fix I get from running with my people

Soon!!!!!!  Tuesday is the day!  My leg feels amazing…. I am ready!

    Beautiful pic! Funny. I just put it together about my skin and running..go figure. I guess it’s a small price to pay. I’ll take the bad skin.

      What a pain though! I agree…. I can use concealer when needed to cover it up given how happy it makes me!

    Tuesday is really close! You’re almost there. I’m very impressed that you have remained the same weight, did you cut back on calories?

      Definitely did most because i wasn’t in hunger overdrive due to workouts. I think the green juice has helped some too 🙂

    So exciting that you’ll get back to running soon – a little time off is relaxing, but generally just if it’s voluntary.
