It’s the first few days of spring in my mountain town and I’m still ninety percent couch bound. I have a follow up doctors appointment this morning and I’m hoping, praying the doctor will give me another shot of pain killers in my ass so I can have one day of feeling like a normal athlete again.
Of course if I get this shot and I feel normal I might allow myself to go on a walk with a friend later. Yes, I said it. A walk.
I was supposed to run my first marathon a few weekends back. That was my spring training plan. In the last two months I have done more sitting on the couch than standing, walking or running… Ha, what is running? I have not run in nearly two months, let alone done P90X, Insanity or any cross training. I think I’m at the point in a very slow recovery now where I may be able to start some very easy biking again.
I’m starting over with my spring training from the very beginning, from day one when I considered running two miles excellent. What happened to the girl who used to run ten miles before an eight hour shift at work?
I miss being athletic and this couch lifestyle is so not for me.
Welcome back to the training world! Every now and again some of us fall off but that is the joy of life – as long as you are breathing, there’s always tomorrow to start over. 🙂
Tomorrow I will be going back to spin class after a two month hiatus because of my knee, so I feel what you are going through. Thanks for linking up and I hope you come back. #wowlinkup
