I run because it makes me love the feeling of living.”- Bonnie Pfiester
We have been residents of Heber, Arizona for a week now. It is so beautiful and peaceful up here. For reference we are about 2 hours SE of Flagstaff on the Mogollon Rim.
Over the move, I had some really bad hip pain. I thought it was everything from Hip Pointer (bashed my hip with a SUP board in Hawaii) to a stress fracture to bursitis. After a few days off, it was back to normal. Crisis averted. Phew.
I was finally starting to feel good (re:not sucking wind) breathing in this fine mountain air at the end of last week when I developed some foot pain. Long story short, today is my second day off of running and I am close to joining the dark side. So dramatic. ha!
Did someone say free cookies??
I am getting it checked out on Wednesday when we head down the mountain, but from what it feels like, I am expecting the worst. What is the saying…under-promise, over-deliver? I am hoping that I will hear good news instead of hearing the dreaded ‘6 weeks off’.
But there is always a silver lining. The good thing about timing is that I am not training for anything major right now. I can relax and focus on doing everything I can to get healthy if need be. And…we are picking up this little lady in San Diego on Saturday:
Seriously, I cannot handle the cuteness. I have all of my training books, notes, and schedules ready to go. We also *may or may not have* already spent a small fortune spoiling the little Gussigator. (She already has a nickname) Since Tank passed, there has definitely been a void in our lives, and I became that crazy lady petting every dog I see out in public.
Oh, one more thing- check out this Core workout. We have been doing this one lately and the guy is pretty funny, but it’s a good workout. He totally cracks me up, super cheesy!
Run Happy Friends!
