I’m not even going to bother putting down my workouts, because right now they’re non-existent. I’m pretty sure I’m suffering from a myriad of problems: my plantar fasciitis is acting up just a tiny bit (I’m not going to lie, it has been nagging at me a tiny bit for some time but I thought stretching and using a golf ball on my foot would keep the injuries at bay…boy was I wrong). I could list a number of things I did wrong to cause these problems (not just pushing through the pain), but I won’t.
That’s for another post in the near future. The rest of you can learn from my mistakes…that I’ve made over and over again.
For now, it’s time for Wicked…wait for it…Random Wednesday! Even though you’ll be reading this on Thursday. I was torn between making this a rant post or a post full of optimism. I was leaning towards ranting again this week, but that’s just not my personality. The wonderful thing about living in New England (more specifically, Mass.) is that you can put “wicked” in front of pretty much any word and make it work. So some weeks I might be writing about a Wicked Happy Wednesday while others I’ll be writing about a Wicked Annoying Wednesday. You get the drift. Anyways, here goes:
1. Tonight, I chased my dinner down with a glass of Chardonnay and Swedish fish (my favorite candy!). The two don’t mix at all.
2. Btw, the reason why I had a glass of wine was because according to Monica, today was National Wine Day. I didn’t doubt her, I just went with it.
3. A conversation with my sister via text:
4. OK, I know how you see the theme of this post going (not so random), but my family and I are not alcoholics. Definitely not the animals.
5. Hungry Runner Girl asked on her blog post today if anyone’s ever met any celebrities. I realized that I’ve actually met quite a few: President Bush (Sr.), Laura Bush, Georgina Bloomberg, the daughter of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and have been up close (not personal) with a few other celebrities, such as Lara Flynn Boyle and Kelly Ripa. I’ve also met Jerry Seinfeld’s wife and daughter.
And in more positive news related to running and my injury, Emmeline posted a Challenge on her website today. I think this is something I can do, because it won’t affect my leg too much. But, now I’m wondering…
Any of you have some advice for a girl who can’t run right now? What other exercises have you done when you’ve been laid up? Have you done any, or do you generally just take time off from exercise completely to let yourselves heal up?
