Roller Coaster

I’ve started quite a few posts over the last few days but haven’t been able to finish them.  The problem with this injury is really the emotional roller coaster I’ve been on from the beginning.  Things will feel really good one day and I’ll be convinced I’m finally on the mend, only to have it…

Hardcore

You know what makes me feel hardcore?  This: Sunday when I was running in the torrential downpour, I got a lot of grit in my socks from the ankle deep puddles.  The back of my heel got a little cut up.  I put on a bandaid and headed out for my run yesterday.  When I…

More chiropractor love

I love Dr. Wong more every time I see him.  While I was running Sunday morning, my right hip started hurting.  It’s getting to be ridiculous what a mess I am.  I know it’s all related to the stupid foot.  Even though it’s feeling better than it was feeling, it still hurts and I’m still…

Summer is here!

It’s been a busy couple of days around here.  Friday, I went for a run before my appointment with Dr. Wong and instead of the 4 miles I had planned, the loop I picked turned out to be 5.3 miles… oops.  The first couple of miles felt great.  It was the first time I was…

Ups and Downs

The ups and downs of recovery are kind of brutal.  The ups: finally figuring out what’s going on with me, getting the blessing to run, not feeling horrible stabbing pain during running.  The downs: foot is still very sore.  Yesterday it was super sore.  It’s hard for me not to let it get to my…

Up and Running

I’m really looking forward to my next chiropractor appointment tomorrow.  I’ve run twice since Monday and am incredibly encouraged by the results.  The acute stabbing pain I had been feeling is gone.  My gait is much more even and normal.  And the biggest change, I didn’t end up in pain and limping after either run. …

A new diagnosis

After a long wait, I finally got to see the chiropractor yesterday.  It was my first time ever seeing one and I admit to going into the appointment a skeptic.  I had high hopes but was still unsure he would be able to help me.  I feel like I can’t really review my experience without…

Raw

I haven’t felt very inspired to write lately.  Mostly I’m feeling anxious.  Anxious that the chiropractor won’t be able to help me and I’ll be no better off than I am right now.  Just waiting and wondering if my ankle will ever heal.  Wondering when the pain will go away.  Wondering if I will ever…

Why Running?

I’m so excited about my chiropractor appointment on Monday.  I’m glad it’s only a weekend away.  Of course, I told Lawrence I may have to move out if he can’t help me.  I would be impossible to live with after that… well, more so anyway.  Lawrence keeps reminding me I have to be patient, he’s…

Best Compliment Ever

Yesterday I made a serious scheduling error.  I should’ve gotten up and gone to the gym early but I didn’t realize that until it was already too late.  Because of that I had to go to the gym AFTER my hair appointment.  That’s just bad planning.  My hair looked cute for all of 30 minutes. …

Why, Garmin, Why???

Finally, walk success!  We did a little 4 miler around the lake by our house.  It was a little humid and muggy but felt good to be outside moving.  I wore my Garmin because the poor thing needed to get out of the house too.  It’s been awhile.  After the second mile, a message popped…

Date Night

Well, we didn’t make it out for a walk after I got home from work yesterday.  Mostly because I was lazy and didn’t feel like it.  Instead we decided to use a gift certificate we’ve had for a while and go out to dinner.  Not sure it was the healthiest choice, but it was definitely…
