Yes, I found my mojo...I just found it too much...let me explain. Since living in Hawaii, my running has been lacking. Not running as many miles, my runs have been hit and miss over the past several months. I ran the Mesquite marathon in November with running no more than 20 miles total in the 4 weeks prior...then I ran the LV marathon with even less...and to top that off, I hadn't been doing a lot of strength training for these wheels of mine. So, finding my mojo has been a real blessing, but I have been running way too much...6 days a week, I haven't been able to get enough. You see where I am going with this don't you? The last few days I have had a weird twinge in my left tibia...feels like a stress fracture could be lurking in there somewhere...so I am being forced to lay off the running a bit...frustrating, yes. I know better and I have just been dumb. Even seasoned runners make stupid mistakes, well, maybe not all of them, but this one sure did. So, where do I go from here? Well, taking a few days off is the start. We cleaned out our garage, and the hubby set up the weight equipment...WOOHOO! I have most of my gym back. So I will be working hard to strengthen my legs and I will not make that mistake again! I have been fracture free for over 10 years and I really don't want another one..EVER!
I am still feeling great about my weight loss efforts and looking forward to this next week!
I had 3 chocolate covered strawberries tonight...yummy!!!! My first treat in weeks! And worth every calorie! Happy Valentine's Day!~
