I am trying to limit updates on my injury to once a week or every other week, so as not to bore you with the details– this was the first
8 days week of no running, not that anyone is counting! So far it seems to be working; in fact, I haven’t done much of anything in the way of aerobic exercise. I do think that chasing after my two sons counts for some cardio though. 🙂
I think the time off running is going to be the best decision I have made in a long time. Yesterday I had an ART appointment, and I am happy to report that the right psoas has loosened up quite a bit. Week of rest: 1 psoas: 0. Rest for the win!
Since I have not been logging any miles, I have been keeping myself busy doing things around the house and with the boys. It’s AMAZING how much time has opened up in the schedule. We have hit the zoo, the children’s museum, food shopping, the active center at the Y, and the list goes on…
The nice thing about the extra time is being able to cook more. I was sorely neglecting kitchen duty, and now with more time on my hands, I have put together some pretty tasty and healthy meals. I am not going to quit my day job yet, but I am pretty proud of myself!
Only 22 days left in my month of self-imposed rest!
