Oh my–the hazard of being MIA on the blogging means I am totally behind on calculating my weekly mileage–and thus I have not added any extra dollars to my runDisney fund.
So the last time I posted was January 27th–the same day my dear ol’ grams fell and ended up in the hospital. At that point, I had 105.05 miles for the year.
The grand total since then, and I guarantee this won’t be so impressive as the last weeks of running have sucked for me is:
127.65….and 22.4 of this was all Glass Slipper Challenge.
And well, after seeing that number, well, I don’t feels so bad. 127 miles and change is pretty darn good over the last little bit.
Moving forward, well…I’m not sure what is coming. I have Pixie Dust in 50-ish short days….but I also have this weird ab maybe hernia thing, which according the specialist isn’t a hernia, but I am being sent for an ultra sound at a future date to be determined. So I think that, post Pixie Dust, I might have to take some time off–like 6-8 weeks time off from running in an attempt to get healed as my doctors and specialists don’t seem to be helping much in that regard. I might even drive to the states and pay to have an ultrasound done just so I can get moving on getting better.
I am also no longer planning on running with my dear ol Grams for Wine and Dine in November. My younger cousin can’t make it to help as a travel aid with my gramma and it’s just too hard to go without that extra person. I’m heartbroken as I was going to get to see my Team Can Am Girls and get to run a Disney 5K with my grams…and now it isn’t happening and it makes me really sad.
So yeah…very mixed emotions right now…no Wine and Dine…no Team Can Am, no Gramma trip, no hernia resolution and no potential for PRs during Pixie Dust. Bums me out.
But…I am going to try and look on the bright side–I’m going to do alternative activities–spin classes, bike rides, swimming, weight training–all in the hopes that I can keep up some of my fitness as I heal and maybe focus some time on doing other things like healthy cooking. There has to be a silver lining to all of this, right? 🙂
P.S.I’m very, very aware of the “first world” nature of these problems. If these are the worst thing I am dealing with, I am pretty darn lucky. 🙂
