A week without my #FitFam

So it has been 10 days since I got in a car accident. 10 days without working out. 5 days without hardly moving at all. 2 days of eating soup.

I’ve learned a lot this past week. I’ve had time to review my training schedule..because when you can’t workout you find time to do a lot of things. I calculated it up and I spend about 15+ hours each week working on my body.

It’s frustrating! I’ve been training for 3 months to run a 10K that is 3 weeks away. In 20 seconds that all went down the drain. So now I’m laid up with an ankle that hurts to stand on, hurts to walk on, and I don’t want to even think about running on it.

I think I might be slightly over training. I didn’t realize how tired I was until this past week. I have been going to bed at 8:30pm and not waking up until 7am the next morning. By 3pm, I’m tired again and that’s including taking an hour nap on my lunch breaks because I was that tired last week. I’m sure some of that is due to the fact that my body was healing after enduring trauma. My legs feel good :) My IT bands don’t hurt, my feet don’t hurt, my calves aren’t tight..so maybe this semi-vacation has done them some good.

It’s sad..I now know I have a ton of muscles..I mean I knew they were there but how often do you feel the muscles in your armpits and in between your fingers? But I haven’t been able to workout because I’m literally sore all over. I know the doctor told me 2 weeks but this is like torture..I miss my am workout buddies and my lunch runs. On the flip side of that, I’ve had an hour at lunch to work on my finance class homework so I supposed that is a good thing :)

A swelling body is an interesting thing. I have an eclectic wardrobe but when one is forced to wear clothes to conceal bruises and ankle braces one’s wardrobe becomes even more intriguing.

The talking is exhausting..I’m tired of talking about my accident. I’m tired of knowing that my truck is broken. I’m tired of driving a rental. I’m tired of horrible insurance people giving me the run around. I’m tired of my schedule being so off balanced. I’m just tired :)

So my #FitFam, grab a workout for me. Run a mile for me :) Encourage me with your progress! I miss you :)
