I Know You Care

7 Sep


This week I am busy and I’m not even running.

Oh my god. I know you care about my running and how it is not happening. Yeah, I don’t know why all of a sudden my foot hurts, but it does and I don’t want to run because of it. First it was just my second toe that was hurting and now it’s below my second toe on the top of my foot.

Like I said, I have too many problems. 

I don’t plan on running until Saturday if everything feels okay because I do want to run before my 11 AM shift. Either way I will be running Sunday for the Warrior Dash.

On Friday, I go to the gym at 7:30 to train with my Marines recruiter then afterwards I have tutoring. I’m not done yet. I have an acupuncture appointment. I’m rather excited about getting needles stabbed into me. Hopefully it will help my foot.

Are you guys interested in a post on acupuncture for runners? I got some good details on it. I almost said ‘I got some good deets on that’. It was odd. I also wanted to do a post on eating before bedtime and some other jazzy shit stuff. Just let me know what you want to read/see. So whatcha whatcha want. 

Anyway, it’s Wednesday! I now love Wednesday because of…

I don’t have a proper WIAW, but regardless, I have had some good eats in the past few days. 

Spinach pie + fish
Spicy fish + spinach + veggies + rice
Giant oatmeal cookie + Muscle Milk
Detour protein bar (so good!)
Trix cereal + cottage cheese
Chocolate coconut water

What I worked Wednesday:

1 hour on the elliptical + full body lifting

My great cell phone photography skills. Enjoy. 

Well, if I was in the blogging mood I would totally bore you guys with my life and what’s going on, but I think I might hold off.

Until then, happy Wednesday!

    Sorry to hear about your foot, what a bummer! 😦 BUT I’m sure all of this insanely delicious food helped–I mean trix with cottage cheese? That’s a winner right there 😉
    Happy WIAW chica!

    I’m trying to wrap my brain around trix with cottage cheese. I think I’ll just have to try it and find out.

    Sorry about your foot! Hope the acupuncture helps!

    I’ve heard so many good things about acupuncture, but I have the biggest phobia of needles, so I don’t see myself willingly let people poke me with tonnes of them at once. I hope it helps your foot, though. And if it doesn’t, then I bet more Trix and oatmeal cookies will 🙂

    I totally want a post on acupuncture! Cecily got it done once… I can’t remember if she said it was helpful or not. And cereal and cottage cheese… Mmmm… Are you going into the marines??
    Enjoy your week off of running and tell that foot to stop messing around and shape up! 🙂

    Ahhh I don’t think I could do acupuncture! I know how annoying it is to have to rest and not run, so I feel for ya girl!

    I had an issue like that with my big toe. I went to a podiatrist and she said it was tendonitis. I took like two weeks off of running, iced it all the time, and used this anti inflammatory cream that seemed to help a lot. I can’t wait to hear about acupuncture and I’d like to see your post about eating at night too.

    I really want to try trix and cottage cheese now. That sounds lovely.

      What the heck is tendinitis? Gosh.

    I hope your foot heals up soon! I know you’ll rock the Warrior Dash, and I can’t wait to see how acupuncture works for your foot. Not going to lie, I really don’t like needles, but I wouldn’t mind trying it one day… From the sounds of it, it works wonders for some people!

    Sending healing healthy vibes to your toe.
    I’m definitely interested in what you have got to say about eating before going to bed( actually I like hearing your views on everything). Cos, um, I eat A LOT at that time.
    Fabulous workout.

    Wahh. If you ran on one foot you could probably run faster than 99% of the worlds population. I love reading your blog. You better post a blog about people stabbing your foot with needles. I’m so intrigued.
