I have a ton of stuff to tell you!
First, my little Alex is sick. :( A sick baby is so sad... I cannot even tell you... He slept in til almost eight this morning (which is totally unheard of), and then wouldn't even eat his breakfast. This is a child who LOVES food and shoves everything he can into his face.
OK, about my doctor's appointment. I saw a lady nurse practitioner, who is also named Kim, and she's a super awesome runner. In fact, she's doing the full marathon in Green Bay in a few weeks... she's a rockstar. Anyway, she did an X-ray and didn't see anything on the scan, and then sat me down to have the hard talk. She said that it could be a number of things: stress fracture, shin splints, inflammation of the fascia in my leg, but the treatment is the same for all of these things. Rest. Ice. blah blah blah... honestly, when I heard rest, I zoned out and just heard the Charlie Brown Wah-wah-wah...
So, here's my plan. I am going to ice the hell out of this stupid leg, and then I'm going to sit on my butt, and then next Friday, if I'm pain free (serious finger-crossing here guys) I am going to run the half the following weekend. If I'm not pain free, then you'll be able to find me curled up in my bed surrounded by chocolate wrappers, take-out food containers, and a giant vodka tonic. Not a pretty picture, OK?
So pretty much my whole doctor's appointment/leg thing could be my first Things I Hate Thursdays topic, because I pretty much hate everything about my dumb leg right now, but I'm going to try to be more positive, and talk sweetly to it, like a plant. Then it'll grow healthy and strong, right?
What else. Oh yes, W2 D2 of pushup challenge done... it was like seventy pushups, and it was glorious. I think Nick is a little scared of my pythons. Nick was in the Army, so he can bust out a million push-ups like it's nothing, but he still pretends we do a lot to make me feel better. Sweet husband. :)
And now.. it's time for...
