I was super glad I did my mileage early in the day before motivation was lost. It was cold but beautiful and I savored every mile. Still running/walking per my PT's instructions. I am now up to running half a mile and walking half a mile, rinse and repeat for four miles. I am looking forward to what next week might be. Solid running sounds like a possibility. I did go in and get work done on my leg wednesday. I had pain during my run tuesday and it kind of scared me yet again. I don't know if I can buy into this whole, once you have had an injury you will always have pain bit. I have pain in the parts of my legs that are being used that haven't been used before but I am still having pains in old places. I am still trying not to over think it but it still bothers me. I have taken it easy for over 8 weeks now, yet i know with dogs, soft tissue injuries are a bear. I have been utilizing biofreeze and compression socks like no one's business. I am trying to just deal with each pain and not freak out but as my PT says, I am a control freak and type A to the max so any kink in the plan throws me off.
Now, I need to talk about what I am thankful for. For sure, my PT for putting up with me and my freak outs. My mom for buying andrew's santa stuff (she got a GREAT deal on a train table in TN) and driving all the way to KS to deliver it. My BIL and hubby for cooking all night last night and today and my hubby for cooking and taking care of us EVERY DAY. Also my hubby for putting up with me going to PT twice a week at night and still letting me run and listening to my whining when I can't:). And of course again to my BIL for baby sitting so the hubs and I can go on some dates and enjoy time alone. I am thankful for FB so I can keep up with all of the Gordons, the Days, and the Colemans, since we are so far away from our families. I also have to say thanks to my Savior and Lord who provides for us everyday. Even though I tend to freak out about the pile of medical bills that keep coming, I am very thankful that he always provides for us no matter how bad it gets. I need to remember to trust in him, he has always gotten us through everything else and this is nothing. Of course I would be remiss to not say a HUGE thanks to my running and dog friends who are always there for me. My BRF is always there to listen to me and give me some good therapy and I am really looking forward to some long runs in the near future with her so we can get it all out. I am also super thankful that other than deuce's odd allergy issues that we are still baffled about, that my dogs are healthy and alive and making my life interesting every single day. I am also very thankful for my sweet little crazy red headed two legger that makes every day an adventure, sometimes challenging, but always full of blessings and of course exhausting LOL.
I leave you with this. I call this snow geese, please don't poop on my head! The video really doesn't do the sheer number of them justice. I am kind of like the double rainbow guy when it comes to cool nature stuff. I tried to keep my calm. I did however skype my stepdad so he could see them and he was freaking out too at how many and the noise they were making.
Okay time for apple pie. Hope you had a great turkey day and that your life is full of blessings. Have fun black friday if that is your thing and talk to you later!
