Injured Reserve

Sunday morning, still in pain. I haven’t run since Monday. 6 full days of rest. Shouldn’t my body start feeling better by now? Ugh 😦

My Sunday would begin with an unexpected visit to my Chiropractor’s office, him and his fiancé happen to be two of my best friends. I am very thankful for the Sunday office hours 🙂 Another adjustment on my neck, back, leg, and foot. Big pop!!! A couple of X-rays later reveal a possible bone spur.

No running for… Not exactly sure how long. My 5k next Saturday doesn’t look promising. The Rock n Roll is 3 Sunday’s from today. I’m determined to be running. Come on body…HEAL! I’m only running 5 miles in the relay. Ugh. I’m so disgusted. Not to be a dramatic but the thought of not running makes me want to cry 😦 😦

Back to the IR (injured reserve) list once again. I will have to be creative in finding some way to exercise. Free weights and ab workouts.

Happy Healing

  1. Listen to your body! If you don’t, it will get even with you. Don’t pressure yourself to run Rock-N-Roll. We can still drink a beer in the sand & then go to breakfast!

  2. I went through this same process in July when I was down and out for the count for 8 days. I was prepping for my first 5k and was scared because my back just wasn’t cooperating. I ended up going to a Hot Yoga studio for 5 out of those 8 days and that was magnificent for all of my needed stretching. I loved it and recommend to everyone!

    I’ll be participating in the 9/11 Heroes Run in Va Beach. I just moved back to this area last year with my husband and while I loved Florida, I’m glad to be back. It’s hot In Va Beach in the summer, but at least we get seasons!
