I enjoy being a part-time blogger. I don’t have to post everyday only whenever I want. I can lurk and creep on all my fav bloggers.
If any of you full time bloggers ever become part-time we will have serious issues.
Also, can someone blog between midnight and 2am? I am usually bored during that time and would like some juicy reads!
Alright lets get to the point here. I will never be a runner. I had my fantastic five mile run and I attempted a two mile run last week.
My unofficial 1/2 marathon training has officially ended.
I can run 5 miles and that is good enough for me!
BUT I noticed my pinched nerve pain from my injury was back. I immediately stopped any form of exercise.
So today I decided to go on a bike ride! I am not going to just bum around just because I can’t run.
I was zooming through this ride!! 5 miles in 33 mins- I was heading home as I rounded a bend ( I was going fast-ish) my bike just caved under me and I toppled to the side.
No one was in sight. Tears were threatening to emerge and I pushed them aside and headed home.
Once I was with my camera I assessed the damage.
(Always wear a helmet!!!!)
Good news- I am all clean and bandaged up!
Bad news- I am sure I really hurt my back….
I am leaving for Europe in 5 days and I will be taking and wearing my back brace.
Meet Turtle (again)! I was previously wearing this for 6 weeks this past fall/ winter and felt 99% better at the end.
Should I get a doctors note to get this through airport security?
I could be bummed about being injured again- the pain/ stiffness FEELS 60-75% of what it used to be. Yeah this sucks.
I WILL have a fabulous time in Europe. I just need to listen to my body and take breaks.
The good news is that I am still 12 pounds lighter than when I was previously injured thanks to my healthier eating habits and low impact classes at LA boxing!
Wearing a back brace at a lower weight is very comfortable and I can avoid the stuffed couch feeling.
Other than this setback I had a FABULOUS week filled with family, food, and birthday /bridal celebrations!
A visit form my beautiful cousins!
My lovely sister and baby cousin
Yoga mats are the new runway. Clearly.
My mother celebrated her birthday in style :)
I hope my parents stay smiling as I am away in Europe. Doubtful.
Siblings <3 I am the oldest andddd the shortest. Grr…
Andddddd I will stay smiling because despite injuries and all the crappy things life can bring- we all live a fabulous lifeee :)
