So here’s a little update on what’s been going on! Vacation started July 27th as we headed down 95 south towards North Carolina. 2 hours into the drive I felt my legs cramping up so I went to stretch my leg.. Upon doing that I felt pinch and a crack… I knew this wasn’t good.. At the next rest stop I’d get out and walk it out hopefully easing the pain.. Through out the drive I had a stiffness and soreness on the interior of my left knee.. We get to our first destination, Roanoke Rapids. And I have a hard time walking for a moment until I warmed up my knee. We got in to the hotel and I elevated my leg and took some Alieve. The next morning, I woke up and I was okay not to much pain.
Once in Topsail Beach. I noticed that I still had stiffness in my knee and a weird pain in the interior of my knee. I ran a few times while down there but there was one night where I woke up in sever pain clenching my knee.. All I could think of, ‘NOT MY MCL! PLEASE NOT THAT!’ I again took some Alieve, elevated my knee and went back to bed. That evening while cooking dinner I twisted the wrong way and well Down I went, clenching on to the counter in pain.
So with that, I haven’t been running in 2 weeks trying to let my knee heal some. Today, is the first day in 2 weeks where my knee isn’t killing me. I am still gunna make an appointment with an Ortho but even that makes me nervous.
In other news.. I am going back to school for my RMA ( medical assistant ) !!! 35 and I am going back to school… Nervous as all hell but I got this!! This is my year! 35 is the new 25, RIGHT? right! lmao. I am also getting a second interview with Lululemon on monday! I never thought I’d ever work there but I am stoked..
So HOLY CRAP IT”S HERE!!! It’s really here. This is where my life get’s serious and all the BS is left behind. I’d be lying if I didnt say that I started to cry last night thinking about where I have come from, what I have accomplished thus far, and where I am about to go. OMG I AM RUNNING NYC WITH #MYRUNNINGFAMILY!!!! Get Stoked.. But first, I Thank God for my #SoulSister Amy ( aka: THE AWESOME MOM ) For making me get off and out of my Couch Monster position and hit the streets running.. Cus man, I was not and have not been feeling it lately since I hurt my foot! But I did it. So up first 4 mile run! I ended up doing 3.34 miles instead because my headphones died out pretty much 1/4 of the way through. and I’m sorry I need to listen to my jams when I run. It gets me 110% out of my head.
4 mile run – 3.34
