Today was another day looking up. Not so much pain. But I am not getting the sleep I feel I need. I am hoping after my appointment I am hoping for amazing night of sleep.
Today food wise was great. I made my numbers, used 4 so I could have cake in a cup. I am using the WW online. Found a couple groups that like Disney races. I am hoping in the next three months I can go back to the meetings. This is super easy to use.i have it all set up for reminders and everything. My 5% goal is 186.
This evening E and I went for a walk. I timed it. As always.
It was nice to be outside. It was nice to hold E’s hand. We haven’t done that in a while cause I felt like I was being pulled apart. That was really really nice. So map my run says I walked in 22.25 .56 of a mile. Burned 50 calories,pace 40.15. As of this moment I am packed in ice. Lying in neutral position. Mr.Boogie had to pee on every trash can. Even though he was peed out.to funny.
What have I learned from this injury.
Do not take everyday simple things for granted. Like sitting on our bum,or lying on your back. I haven’t done that in 3 months this week. Holding hands. Yes, the awful painful pulling apart feeling keep me from holding E’s hand. Sleep. I miss a good nights sleep. I can’t wait to get some real sleep. I am up and down, every three to four hours. Walking. I am so glad I am able to walk,even if it is a shuffle. I can understand how my life has changed over a slip and twist. Travel. I missed out on a lot of activities. Two marching band parades, holiday concert. Going to the store. WDW marathon weekend..being able to volunteer,i had to step down. 😦 Life changing . ( I was seriously looking into a wheel chair for racing)
So things are going to be extremely slow, can take up to another 6 months. With proper body mechanics and lot more PT, I should be back to walking my race speed. My goal is 2012 the Tower of Terror 10 miler. Ten months away. That original race kick my ass. I need to revisit it.
Short term goal. Cheer Jonathan on at the Princess half in Feb. even if I have to use pto to go.
I don’t think duathlons or triathlons will be in my future for this season. He didn’t say I could get on my bike anytime soon.
I think my little black rain cloud is fading, I have to let go to move forward.
Got a weigh in Saturday morning. Boots to asses as The Rock tweets for motivation. I even have the shirt. My talking Mickey is gonna have one soon. When I can Mickey will be hitting the pavement again. Duffy Bear is too!
