This last week was rough.
My heart has wanted to run, but my body has said no.
My hip is feeling a LOT better.
I am able to walk upstairs without crying.
But I still can't walk completely without pain.
My physical therapist told me to hold of on a run until I could walk without pain.
So, I wait.
He said it could take as long as 3 weeks. UGH!
(I'm hoping I can try it by this Saturday!)
In other news...
Things just got pretty serious around here.
Like I have a deadline to lose this weight.
2 marathons and a fall wedding, deadline.
Yep, you read that right!
Yesterday I found out I got in to the St. George Marathon!
I am SO excited. This race was the one that really changed my life. Now, I get to run it again...healthier, and happier!
This means I will be on a detailed schedule for training, including using weights to cross train so I can stay injury free. This also means I need to be careful what I fuel my body with so I can make both of these races happen.
I am so excited, not only did I get in to the St. George Marathon, but so did my amazing friend Windee. We will be meeting in St. George to do 26.2 crazy miles.
Some moments I'm excited. Then others, I get a sick feeling in my stomach thinking about how far 26.2 miles is! It's in those moments that I'm worried that I make myself remember that finish line. There has been NOTHING that compares to the feeling of accomplishment that I had in St. George Utah in 2007. Nothing. Crossing that line, seeing my family all there to support me was one of the proudest moments of my life. Now, I get to do it again.
I found this video yesterday, and it instantly filled me with all those emotions again!
(I plan to watch this video a LOT over the next few months...)
