Today marks the two week mark, two weeks since I was told I had a stress fracture and couldn't run for at least two weeks. This morning I was dead set on running this evening, just one mile, starting from scratch. But, after talking with Hughie briefly on the way to work I've decided to take a few more days off, he made the important point of just how much worse I would feel if I hurt myself further and had to take even more time off.
So, we wait just a bit longer.
I have been having a really hard time this past two weeks without running, I knew it was going to be rough but my whole mood has changed, I'm sluggish and a little down without my nightly run to look forward to. Yesterday was the Tely 10 race that I had to drop, the weather was great, record numbers registered and I missed all the fun. Yesterday was a roller coaster of emotion, I felt completely off the entire day, I just couldn't shake it. It's fascinating how much one can truly take for granted something that means so much to them. There were days pre-injury the very last thing I wanted to think about doing was running and now all I think about and want to do is run... humph.
Don't think I've been shut in and sulking for the past two weeks however!
I took another cycling day trip to Bell Island and didn't get rained out! It was a great day riding in the sun!
I bought a bicycle trainer! and a Garmin bike sensor! Now I can bring my cycling inside when the weather turns and hopefully build my endurance.
and the highlight of the past couple weeks, Sea Kayaking!
This past Saturday Hughie and I and 8 of our friends set sail with a tour group in two man kayaks!
|Our friend Will captured the excitement!|
|A map of our journey!|
|Thousands of Mussels! Not actually from our kayaking trip, but another adventure to Flat Rock recently.|
That's all for now, I have some products that I'm going to review for you asap!
