Back in the saddle

well it’s been a bit of an absence and let me tell you it’s quite nice to not have pain shooting down my leg any more!  I spent about a week and a half not being able to stand upright or lie down or sit without pain. Could barely walk couldn’t put weight on one side of my body  taking muscle relaxers like candy…….I had to stop all physical activity and I have to say it just about killed me……I was going stir crazy…..however I am smart enough to know that if you do not take care of your injury it will just get worse…..soooo I spent my time sleeping on my yoga mat on the floor and passing out on muscle relaxers lol

well I am finally….FINALLLYYYYY back to exercise! yeehaw! I can not tell you how much I have missed activity since I had to stop it all.  So I’m back running , I just finished up week 6 of the program i posted on here previously and let me tell you it was sheer torture trying to do that after a week and a half of totally sedentary life – I could barely keep from checking my timer every 10 seconds….the mantra in my head was just for this song…just get through this song….I don’t think I even heard the song…..but get through it I did and the second run of the week was a little easier…..of course these were both on treadmill….a nice way to ease back in after nadda for so long……then run three this week was on pavement…..i felt like my legs were weighed down…..it was sooo much harder of course but I completed it….albeit at a snail’s pace but done without stopping non the less…..so yay me!  i feel great today very happy that i am back on track …..even slept better…..tomorrow I start week 7!  just a couple of weeks away from finishing this program and being able to run 5k again! It feels so great to be able to say that I am a runner again!  my next goal starting in august will be to continue training up to 10k!

well I would love to keep writing but I’m starved to death…tummy is rumbling loudly and must go make a frittatta to satisfy 🙂

ohh on a side note am now down 33 pounds! hope to lose 15 more in the next 5 weeks but we will see what happens – healthy first then pounds
