Another day another post, another week. My birthday has come and gone, but I have had a fabulous weekend of celebrating, which I will share with you in tomorrow’s post. For today, it’s my weekly recap…but sadly there isn’t much to recap. I mentioned last week that I was having some foot pain which has really freaked me out, so I haven’t run in over a week. We left for the beach last Saturday, but on Sunday, I couldn’t resist sand volleyball. It’s how Bobby and I met, we can’t help it. We saw people playing a decent game, and joined in…for four hours. It was glorious, hot, sweaty, and fun.
We got back to the condo sunburned, sore, and happy. I have not been that sore in a REALLY long time. You know, the really good full body sore. I could barely move until Thursday, it was that bad. We hit the gym when we got back from the beach, so to further explain, here is my week broken down by day:
Sunday: 4 hours of sand volleyball
Thursday: chest, tri’s, ab’s, legs, and 113 jump ropes in one minute. Feel the burn!
Friday: back, bi’s and abs. 30 minutes stationary bike
Saturday: 35 minute walk with my mom around their neighborhood
Not the best week there ever was, but I managed what I could with being out of town, a very busy few days of work, and my paranoia over my foot. I may try a couple short runs this week to see how it does, but honestly I am a bit petrified. I really think it’s tendonitis, and I need to get back to stretching and yoga, but I have a huge fear in the back of my mind I am going to struggle through my fall racing season because of yet another injury. Fingers crossed I get this figured out for good.
QOTD: Have you ever had a reoccurring injury? Did you handle it differently to try to get to the bottom of it the second time around?
