Oh, the shed.
Another location to put things out of sight and out of mind.
Happy for you, I won't be out of sight from your respective feeds and updates with a second blog post today as I check in with my 12 Things in 12 Weeks until Summer Solstice goals.
1. As per my Solstice goals list, I needed to add a GoodReads widget to my blog. It's done! Though you'll have to scroll done a bit to see it on your right. I am thoroughly enjoying GoodReads and the lists it lets me make.
2. Purchase a Foam Roller. If you've been with me for a while you'll know that I have some knee problems. Physio recommended I use one regularly along with various glute exercises to help with my IT band problems so I can start running again.
3. In spite of doing my physio I need to remove "Run twice a week" from my goal list. It's killed me to do that since I was gearing up for the running thing: it looked like my knee was on the mend. I went for a run about ten days ago and I couldn't even get to the ten minute mark before my leg and knee started to hurt. Even TKD training was painful.
Yes, I wanted to cry.
In my follow up appointment with my physiotherapist she said she was disappointed with me that I wasn't improving and suggested a cortisone injection. I had the idea rolling around in my head for a while but I was a devastated cat when I learned I need to be on crutches for three weeks.
No running, no walking, no work, and no training.
As down as I am about it, I'm not going to let it stop me. Walking with crutches is slow, but it's still walking, and there's no reason why I can't swim until I can get back on my feet. Literally. Granted, it's been hard the last couple days to construct a routine that won't aggravate my knee too much, but you know what? My knee hurts if I'm taking a rest or if I'm training, so I might as well find some way to train.
Anybody else having some bumps in the road to their goals?
