I don't know how he handles that kind of strain every day, however, because my calves are hating me today. Oh boy, they hurt!!
Ok, enough about gardening...
I have to credit the girls for not being too much of a pain in the butt while we work on the house. Sometimes they're a handful, but usually they're not too bad.
Oh, and fun fact! I loose so much hair every time I shower that the drain cover broke off from constantly trying to pull out and untangle my hair from it (!!!!!!!) It's super gross and definitely not normal. I sure hope I get some help before I'm totally bald. 12 more days till my appointment.
And in sad news, I decided to switch my registration for the Big Cottonwood marathon from the full to the half. It wasn't an easy choice. I really wanted to do two marathons this year. However, with everything going on with my body I know I just don't have it in me. The sudden nose dive in my health has really killed my spirits and brought down my determination. Everything went haywire with my body when I stopped marathon training. I took 3 weeks off from running/training and kept things really light and simple at the gym to recover (let's be honest, I just went to socialize), and my body freaked out in the process. It doesn't make sense. It's almost like marathon training was preventing disaster and when I stopped, the flood gates opened. I've hardly ran in the last 6 weeks and when I have, it's been painful and difficult for various reasons. I can't train for a marathon with the conditions I'm facing. I felt so at peace when I resolved that I needed to accept it just wasn't happening. I think I'll be ok to still run my half's I'm registered for since those don't take tons of training and aren't nearly as hard on the body. I'm sad, but I'm also relieved. I need to get my health figured out and in order before anything else. Hopefully once I have help and answers I can get my mental game back on track because I was feeling unstoppable!
Well, that's all for today. It's nearing 8:30 and I feel bedtime coming on. See you soon!
