Just popping in for a quick update. I've had to really dial down the exercise for about a week and a half now and it sucks. I am still going to the gym, switched to focusing on a resistance workout for my upper body and abs/torso workouts, plus lots of stretching. I've had to avoid the treadmill entirely and after nine days off, got back on the treadmill yesterday, walking, not running, for half an hour plus I started resistance on the lower body again. I still felt achy afterwards, but wasn't limping in pain like I had been 10 days ago. Still, I think I'm not fully recovered yet so I am going to take the weekend off and just focus on rest, ice, compression and elevation.It really makes one appreciate what athletes have to go through to stay healthy and on top of their game. If any of you runners out there have any tips on rebounding quickly from an injury - please let me know!
We're supposed to have an unusually warm weekend so I'm going to try and enjoy it while it lasts before we get our next blast of winter. Here's the photo update, holding steady at 142 lbs. and I expect I will until I can get back on the treadmill.
I really need to do a photoshoot of the little one soon - she was "too busy" last weekend and told me that she had "too many projects to do, Mommy". I think she's nine going on 23, sigh. Bon weekend!
