Hi. I am on the verge of a mental running breakdown. Every time I have run since Disney, my knee hurts and I am getting side stitches. Since I like to overanalyze everything, here is my breakdown. My knee is hurting because I need new shoes. Because my knee hurts, I change my running gait and hunch therefore inhibiting my breathing ability while running. Makes sense? Totally nonsense? You be the judge.
I told John that I don’t think I should run until I am able to go get re-fitted and get some new shoes. Now, let’s just find the $$ and time to head up to the Huntsville to Fleet Feet Sports.
Not running and having bad runs kinda makes me a little crazy in the head. It makes me stress about it, and that runs over into my daily life. And doesn’t help my attitude with my sassy princesses. And honestly? It makes me a little depressed. I REALLY want to run Nashville, I have yet to sign up due to the fact that I am scared I am really injured and I want to mentally be ready for this race and I don’t feel like I am right now. And then I get mad about it. You see why I am a little bit of a crazy person, right now?
Any advice, words of wisdom, slaps in the face are always welcome.
In other news, I am headed to Hartselle today with Becca so she can get fitted for her bridesmaids dress for her brothers wedding– did I mention that I am the wedding photographer? Holy cow. I am. I am so pumped. And then tonight, pizza dinner and play date with Lee and Alana and their kiddos. Super excited about what today holds.
Guess it’s time to get out of the jammies and put some real people clothes on.
P.S. Did you watch the Bachelor? So glad he picked Emily. Loved her hair on the After the Final Rose- but that was the most awkward show ever. Brad has a temper? Must be bad– why didn’t she have the ring and he gave it back on the show? That’s just strange. I would love to know what happened… Because I am just nosey.
P.P.S. I am not a fan of the scales this week- I had gotten down to 131.5- I could taste the glory of 130- and guess who’s hormonal and has a monthly visitor and back up to 135?? So, I refuse to input my weight on My Fitness Pal this week.
