So this weeks training did not go exactly as planned. After finding friends in my new town to run with (look at me reaching that goal I set last week in this post) on Sunday. I totally busted out the phone mid-run to capture a photo of my girls as we trucked along:
And having a great run. Monday came. And it was a total case of the Mondays. (Bonus points: Can you name that a movie reference?) So I was running, racing my husband actually, and stepped off a curb wrong and did this
Thankfully nothing is broken or fractured. Severe sprain and planter facetious requiring 5 days of rest in a soft cast. I was so bummed when the doc told me I had to be in a cast. He actually said “Geez, what is up with you athletes?! You play hard! You need to rest hard too.” Eeeeert. Hit the brakes. Wait. What? Dd he just call me an athlete? Awesome. I do not know if I have ever been. Allied an athlete as an adult. Actually, I know I haven’t. So I was feeling so awesome to be called an athlete that I was totally willing to submit to whatever the doc had to say. Haha! So I have been trying my best to rest.
Today we are headed to Arizona for a work trip for my hubby and since my BFF lives there the whole family is going with him. FYI the bestie is Acacia who you guys met yesterday in this profile post. She is a huge inspiration and encouragement in my life. Not only in the health and fitness realm (seriously, read her profile, she is an inspiration to single-moms, moms, and women everywhere) but an inspiration and encouragement to me in all aspects of life. She is that friend who, though we live 6 hrs apart, I can say “I need you here ASAP.” She will say, “Let me pack a bag. I will be there in 6 hours.” No questions asked. Like a sister. I think everyone needs a best friend like that. Life is so much better when you have someone you can count on to love you enough to put their life on hold to love you through those times when you cannot image how to move forward.
