Three Things Thursday

1) I had my follow-up appointment for my stress fracture yesterday.  I was feeling so positive when the doctor pressed on it and it felt tender but not "shoot me through the ceiling" painful.  I was sent for more x-rays...

and it's still fractured.

BAH!.  It's HEALING...it's just not HEALED.

Four more weeks of no running.  Makes me happy I DNFed last weekend.  It also makes me wonder how close to a full break I actually was.



In other news - apparently on my first x-rays there was also a visible bone spur at my Achilles.  Fun times.  I imagine they'll be watching that pretty closely going forward.

2) I started a little yoga challenge with myself on Monday.  I need to heal and get some flexibility back and as much as I hate to admit it - I need the yoga.   So, we'll have to see how this goes, but with four more weeks of no running, I think I need to take some time for self care and see if I can build some sort of practice that will help me when/if I am able to run again.

I may even venture into a class at some point...probably when we are at the resort.

3)  Nine more sleeps until my vacation.   Can I sleep until it gets here?  I am so ready to go and just be off my feet for a whole week!


I think I have officially run out of things we need to buy for this trip.  Hubby is probably happy about that.

I am also insanely happy for the long weekend this week!   My plan is to be completely packed by Monday so I won't need to do anything else for the trip except grab the suitcases and go.

  2. Healing = good. Still healing after all this time = sucks. Lots of good stuff in yoga, hope you find a good instructor on vacation. Yoga on the beach, mmmm! I'm over the moon about a 4 day weekend. Except that the list of things to do is piling up.

  3. You are healing and that's great! You will get there! I am insanely jealous of you beach vacation! You are going to look smokin' in those bathing suits!

    I hope you find some enjoyment in yoga. Even though you aren't running, you can still strengthen your body and mind.

    Sending many healing thoughts your way!

  5. Thanks for the update Cori. I'm sure it was disappointing to learn you aren't quite all healed up yet after 8 weeks but you must be so close! Beach and yoga time sounds like a great way to rest up and get closer to the time when you are healed again!
