Wednesday- 3 miles running on treadmill + 8 min abs + 1 round of the below workout from hauterunningmama blog.
Thursday- 3 miles on treadmill + 8 min abs
Throughout the time I’ve been injured I’ve had a lot of time to think and quite frankly mope around. I haven’t been as positive as I’d hope to be.
I’ve had plenty of break downs to my husband and my mom where I was a blubbering mess. I know a lot of people won’t get why not running is hard for me, but it’s okay.
It’s okay that I’ve only ran 8 miles total this week.
It’s okay that I got a message from Daily Mile on Sunday saying it’s been 14 days since my last workout.
It’s okay that I’ve avoided the blog world a bit because I’m sad I’m not running.
It’s all okay because this is life. We get challenges that make us stronger. It sucks right now to not be able to do what I love. Running does a lot for me, but it’s okay.
It’s okay because I have so much to be grateful for.
Biking or other cardio
grapes! Yup, we finally have some yummy grapes in our back yard(my husband and I both feel pretty proud of ourselves for growing something!)
My favorite TV shows to keep me company=) (extreme makeover: weight loss edition)
The little runs I’ve been able to go on
Looking forward to holding this sweet babe, born Thursday morning. (My little sister’s baby)
I know it’s hard for all of us to go through trials, but I also know they make us stronger. It’s hard for me to even see beyond this injury, but I’ll be a better/smarter athlete for it. I’m excited to be injury free at some point, but for now I’m going to take the time to learn all I can to be a better runner.
what’s your favorite TV show?
any fun weekend plans?
