So, I have 2 races scheduled this weekend. The Emerald City Quarter Marathon is Sunday and then the Run 4 the Health of it Four Miler on Monday. I will not be racing in either. Actually, I don’t know when I’ll be running again, but it looks like it will be a very long time. I’m on bed rest until Tuesday and then limited activity until we don’t know when. I’m guessing Oktoberfest Miler Vier is out at the end of the month too.
This is why you shouldn’t push yourself too hard. I knew something was wrong and I chose to ignore it.
I’m trying really hard not to be upset, but the finisher’s medal for that quarter marathon was pretty awesome. I mean, not that I’m in it for the hardware, but you’d want it too. I also have no idea how to explain this to nosy people since we aren’t ready to talk about what is going on.
In other news, Kathrine Switzer, author of Marathon Woman and the first woman to run the Boston Marathon is speaking and signing her book tomorrow. I can’t go. I am incredibly disappointed about this. People in town are already posting pictures with her and I can’t even go get a book and have it signed.
Yes, I am having a tantrum. Do you know how friggin’ boring it is to spend a day in bed? I’ve watched over a season of Teen Mom today. My back aches, my muscles are wasting away and I can feel myself gaining weight. I never thought I’d want to go to work so badly, but it’s hard to even get much work on the computer done right now. I’m not sorry that I’m doing what my body needs and taking a rest, but it’s hard to focus on why this is the right thing to do when I’m such a mess.
My husband started a 2 week temp job yesterday (yay, money!), so he was at work all day, but at least he’ll be home to watch Angel (season 3) and Buffy (season 6) with me all weekend. Cause I’ve run out of Teen Mom.
So thanks for sticking around. Updates may be light as I run out of things to talk about (and viable brain cells). I also still think the basement cat is trying to kill me.
So tell me friends, what else do you guys hate besides flossing and cats? Any good (cheap) books I should read while trapped here? Movies I should watch (preferably on Netflix Instant)? Anyone want to guest post about their infinitely more interesting weekend?
