Happy Saturday everyone! First off I have to say THANK YOU for the amazing comments you guys left me yesterday. I was 100% blown away by the love and support you showed. I think every comment made me either tear up or straight up cry. It was a very emotional day in my household and I have the puffy eyes today to prove it! Here’s what I learned from you yesterday:
- I CAN still exercise
- I am going to have one sexy back from all that pool work
- This is an opportunity to explore new forms of exercise that I might (gasp) enjoy
- Some of you have had some very traumatic injuries yourself and are better people and athletes for it
- I have an AMAZING support system and a lot of love in the blog world
I also learned that my husband will do anything to make me smile when he sees me cry. I got 2 presents: kombucha + flowers = much happier Kelly.
So like I said yesterday, I do believe in allowing yourself time to wallow. Well, wallow I did! But today I am picking myself up by the soles of my cross-trainers and putting myself in all-out crosstrain mode. The running shoes are sitting nicely in the closet and they are going to enjoy their little break. My plan is to swim on M, W, F and do other crosstrain activities and weights on T, TH and Saturday. So I did 8 “I don’t feel sorry for myself” elliptical miles in 70 minutes. I am POOPED! Do you think they have elliptical Olympics? I am all in! (I kid I kid) Now I am jumping in the shower because I have a PT session at 9:00. I am not gonna lie…PT hurts like nothing else I have ever experienced. My left leg seriously looks like someone has taken a baseball bat to both sides. But I don’t care how ugly it looks as long as it is working!!! 🙂
I love you all and I can’t promise that I am going to be a bundle of joy everyday while I am not running but I can promise to try. I will lean on you guys and count on you to help me get through this. I have a support system…I am not alone…and in the end I AM going to be a better athlete for this. I AM!
Tell me your Saturday plans!
