A quick little update as I approach the 8 week mark of no running. I'm still not better.
I keep hoping I'll wake up one day and be all healed. But alas, nope. Doesn't appear that is going to happen.
On the positive side, my foot is getting better. Just not fast enough. But now it hurts more in the ankle so I suppose I really need to get back to the doc to figure out why.
Also, I've finally embraced spin. Don't love it but am finally getting the hang of it enough that I was even able to go into that zone out place that I can go while running. That was lovely. The Saturday instructor is my favorite -- she can pull together a great work out.
The new job is going well -- but I'm still recovering from the old one. Don't mean to be dramatic and honestly I had no idea how much of a toll the old job had taken on me but boy had it. Yikes. This new one is still a bit stressful -- but only because I'm new. The place is so much better -- so once I get over being new, I anticipate it will be very good. They also have a group run scheduled on April 17th -- now how cool is that? Surely I'll be able to pull off 3 miles in two weeks. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I'm not even going to Eugene -- no sense in it at this point. I can't imagine even running a half in 3 weeks since I'm not running now. They unfortunately don't defer entries so I'm out the fee as well as my airline ticket. Goodness.
Anyway, that's it -- must get back to work.
