I went off the rails.
I guess it was bound to happen at some point. I have been rallying each week and hanging on (picture thread like), but the crash was chasing me.
It started on Monday, well actually Sunday night. I slept till about 2 a.m., woke up, and never got back to sleep. My mind was racing, just blah. I laid in the dark and tried to relax but never got a wink. Finally, I decided to read about 4 a.m. then got and started piddling about an hour later. I have to be at work at 7 a.m.
I felt yuck all day..rundown, a bit spacey.
When I got home Otto was having issues, getting sick, losing his bladder, so I called and made the vet appt. for Wednesday.
Tuesday I woke up thankful I had slept, but I just couldn't find any motivation to do anything after work.
I miss him so much. Otto was not the typical cat, he greeted me everyday and was always right next to me. The void :( Otto's post
|Otto with this tongue hanging out|
I went and pedaled for almost two hours on the gym cycle. I did wear padded shorts, but my tush was still screaming toward the end. I am super slow but I climbed that hill.
Saturday same nose burning, and sore cheeks. Ugh...no time for sick. After lounging around, eating, and taking medicine, I took a walk. I stayed off my feet all week and tried to limit my walking because I still have no clue how much it hinders healing.
The cool sunshine worked its magic yet again, and lifted my mood tremendously. I runfess I ran a few glorious steps! Not long, but I HAD to cross a busy street quick...
Running felt easier on my feet than walking. Weird, but true. Once I saw my "quick" lap time, I had to run a few steps each mile just to beat my last lap time...weird, but true...it is a sickness lol
I had to work an open house for our school, and went in and did my thing, smiling and answering questions.
My feet feel about the same, they seem no worse for walking. I headed to the gym and got my leg work accomplished for the week.
Ready for this weirdness...
A lady I work with went to the doctors this week and came back in a boot. She has a drifting toe. Our toes look almost identical. We started talking and our stories are crazy similar. However, she is not a runner and doesn't even do much walking. Her ball of the foot pain, is just from the walking around she does at work.
We both had the very specific pebble sensation under the ball of the foot. We both had it so pointed and strong we actually took our shoes off expecting to see a rock stuck in the tread, but it wasn't.
We both experienced a line sensation under the ball - like when your sock line hits your wrong. We also both felt the bone connecting to the ground sensation, about a month before our toes went wonky. We both felt we were improving at some point before the real pain and swelling busted loose....weird.
This week was relentless for challenges. My appointment with my sports medicine Doc was canceled, he is going to be out long term. I understand life happens, but I was a bit annoyed they didn't offer me a spot with another doctor in the practice, there are about 14 docs...
I feel like I am not meant to have a doctors help with this injury.
I am hoping I can get in to see the Doc who is helping the lady I work with, going to make that call Monday.
This week started out rough, I tried to pick myself up and get headed in the right direction.
I sure hope this week goes better than last.
Thank you for reading my ramblings and I hope you have a wonderful week!
Honestly, I am ready for this week to be over. Ever been there?
