I am not gonna lie. I am so frustrated. I am in soooo much pain. Something happened to me, don’t know when, don’t know how. Seems like I might have a slipped disc or an issue with my sciatic. Not sure if that is good news compared to thinking I had some problem with my butt. Whatever it is, it is one of the most painful things I have experienced! Thankfully, I am started to feel better today – still in a lot of pain but walking with less of a limp.
Following the race on Sunday, I went back to the doctor (chiro) on Tuesday for some more adjustments and a lot of prodding to figure out where and the heck I really hurt. Oddly enough, I can’t quite pinpoint it. We did some pretty intensive Active Release treatment, Class-4 Laser and Ultrasound and that left me quite exhausted. The only real information I left with was to rest for a week.
In speaking to my coach I told her what was going on in my mind. For the most part, and in truth, I am ready to deal with the fact that I might or might not run Boston. Do I really, really care? No, not really. I want this sub-3 and if Boston will delay that then I’d rather wait. Our hopes are high, I am resting/recovering, trying not to eat the whole refrigerator and enjoy some long deserved time off. More than anything I am frustrated. For one, I listened, learned and was patient and yet this had to happen right around showtime. Right now I am not talking Boston, I am going no matter what, but I don’t want to talk about it too much and consume my mind with what-ifs. Deep down though, I want it.
Anyway, enough about running. It is definitely not my life (although it does make it a little funner)!
So, I moved about a month ago to a new place and I haven’t really had time to settle into my new space. Yesterday I unpacked one of the last two boxes and I started thinking about my next project. I simply cannot not do anything, I have to keep busy and I have to have a plan or I will go crazy. Something to work on I know… This past weekend I told my boyfriend that I wanted to refresh my Spanish speaking skills. I have a lot of friends that speak a lot of Spanish and I think it would be nice to converse with them in a language that I love and lost while studying Hebrew. Now when I speak Spanish, I accidentally say certain things in Hebrew – all in the same sentence! My friends are probably thinking, “That is not Spanish, what the heck is she saying!” I don’t bother to mention it is another language…I probably should so they won’t think my Spanish is super horrible. HAHA. I am not fluent in Hebrew though – I know about 500-700 Hebrew words and phrases and my accent is pretty incredible. One day I hope to know several languages, I find them so interesting. Anyway, I look forward to this – it’s also an excuse to bust out my note cards, markers, pens, and notebooks. I love all that stuff.
Besides that, I am going to continue to work on the running group logo/website and of course some sort of craft project. I will keep you posted…I KNOW you are so interested in that. JK
