Weekly Roundup 4.24-4.30 & 5.1-5.7

 
Hey guys!  It’s been two weeks since I last posted a Weekly Roundup and I still haven’t tried running a step.  This injury has been super frustrating and is making me crazy.  It’s always worse when you CAN’T do something versus when you just don’t want to.  I was diagnosed with an abductor strain.  For awhile I was getting a lot of referred pain down my leg and to my piriformis but now it is more localized.  Sitting hurts.  Standing too long hurts.  I also haven’t been able to spin.  I can’t jump around in pool class.  I wasn’t sleeping.  My appetite is suppressing (probably to a normal appetite 😂).  I lost about 4 pounds but I’m getting fluffy.  Not running sucks.

I’m trying to stay motivated and looking ahead to future goals—I signed up for Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia in September—because I can feel Buffalo slipping away from me.  I may still be able to run the half Memorial Day weekend but I know I won’t be able to race.  I’m being a good little PT patient and doing all my exercises, stretching a ton, rolling every day and getting in the pool a few times a week.  Kathy has been awesome—spending so much time with me, being so accommodating and putting me to WERK.  So many glute exercises!

While healing is slow, I am sleeping through the night and definitely getting stronger.  I used the elliptical pain-free this weekend and finally was able to go long enough to sweat on Sunday!  Baby steps.  It’s hard to remember sometimes but small progress is still progress.

Other highlights:

·      I’m getting new floors!  Last weekend I helped my dad rip up the kitchen.  Georgie supervised and I took out all the nails.


Upcoming events:

·      2 weeks until the Piggy Trot!
·      3 weeks until the Buffalo Half Marathon!
