What has been going on since my last post?
1 attempted run with the jogging stroller on Saturday:
Everything related to the recent hamstring pull flared up slowly, starting from my ankle and went straight up.. The last two miles back home I had a pretty awful drop step to my run and a kiddo who was getting a little antsy, but behaved very well overall.
Honestly, I've been in a bit of a funk since I pulled it. After taking time off after the marathon and hoping to slowly get back into a routine, injuring myself, even a small injury, just bonks me. Since running has become so much more than exercise to me, removing it from routine so often isn't that nice of a feeling.
To add, I still have lingering issues with my big toe flexor, improving, but still there. And that chest thing? Yea.. came back a bit. I got a referral to see a cardiologist and if nothing there, a pulmonary doctor. I'm still guessing its more nothing than something, but once I mentioned my chest issues to my doctor, he wanted to cover all the bases.
What does that mean for me? Trying not to run... much. I obviously need time to heal without continuously beating up my body (Thanks to Miss Fluency's Folly for the supportive words on recovery today!) . I go through big chunks of the day feeling normal, thinking oh I can get back out tomorrow, then I'll feel a pull tighten or something feel out of place.. being human.. ugh.
