Living Your Life

Typing one handed is really the pits, but it beats not being able to type at all. In five weeks the sling comes off and some of my freedom will return also. So excited for the little things. My Doctor has given me the okay to walk, (don't fall), and I can start spinning on a stationary bike with my brace on. Yippee! This layoff has me paying a lot more attention to the quantity of food I put in my mouth. I don't want to wake one morning and not recognize myself. The less I exercise, the less I eat. It feels good to not be shoveling food into my mouth 24-7. When I am training on a daily basis, it gets ridiculous. I start eating early in the morning and I don't stop until my head hits the pillow. It's like I have no control. I hate that!

I've got a terrible case of FOMO right now. (fear of missing out). I hate it that everyone is running and seeking adventure and I am sitting here waiting for an update on facebook! Did I say BORING?! Sorry for my belly aching. I've got to go now, it's been ten minutes and I feel an email coming on. Wishing all of my blogger friends, all three of you, a great evening! Run on a cool trail and think of me!

I had surgery to repair my torn subscapularis earlier than originally planned. Last Friday, April Fools Day, I went under the knife. This puts me 3 weeks ahead of schedule! I will be running 3 weeks sooner, uh, walking, 3 weeks sooner is more like it! I thought that 5 days post op would have me power walking the streets, instead, I am power napping in a recliner! This is NOT what I had envisioned. I carry this huge apparatus the Doctor calls a sling, 24-7. Off only to take a shower. This is definitely more than I bargained for, but totally necessary. My sister Shawn, had surgery on her finger the same day. The walking wounded.

All of my racing plans for this season is caput and I am feeling quite trapped. Oh, and typing one handed really sucks, too. But life is GOOD. Soon these legs will be moving forward and I will be planning my next adventure. SOON....
