Espero que os gustara! Esta tarde repito y llevaré look y peinado radicalmente diferentes... Os voy contando por stories. Muaaaacks 💋
I have always taken pride in my strength. Although at one time I wanted to be the stereotypical skinny runner, I would now prefer to look like I am ready to go to war. It certainly has been my mantra over the years. That may be why I felt compelled to lift up my 6’3”, 190 pound husband, off the ground on Easter Sunday. 🤦🏼♀️ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I have done it numerous times before and didn’t think much of it until I felt a shift in my knee as I exerted more force to lift him up higher. Once I set him down and started to walk, I could feel the pain. It affected me greatly on steps and hills as I then went on a walk with my family. In the back of my mind, I was petrified I had sustained some serious damage to my knee. Considering I am still not at a point where I am able to seriously train for any races, I knew I could not bear another obstacle. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
After utilizing the R.I.C.E method for nearly 48 hours, I sought out the insight of a doctor and physical therapist. By this point, I was already noticing some improvement. Praying and hoping for the best, I was relieved to learn my injury was relatively minor. Moments of examining and moving my knee was all my doctor needed for his initial assessment. Based on his examination, I likely pushed my kneecap back into a groove in my knee and may have slightly sprained the right side of my left knee. The physical therapist conducted numerous tests on all of my knee tendons and did not note anything of concern. I was in no pain when he moved it in different directions and he pushed down on the knee. There was some minimal swelling at the bottom of my knee where I still had some lingering pain, and my quad muscle above my knee was tight. Some treatment was performed before I left. ••••••••••
After this appointment, the pain has nearly vanished. I have been advised that I should only need to take a few weeks off, if that. At this rate, it shouldn’t be much longer. I am beyond grateful and definitely think I have proven my strength enough outside of the trails and roads. It’s now a time to keep the dream alive and focus on the day I make my complete return.🙌🏻
Hours after finishing this run on Sunday, I was goofing around with family and sustained a freak knee injury. It’s not swollen or bruised, but it feels painful at times and is unstable. I have worked so hard to feel fit again while rebuilding, and I am praying this is not a major obstacle. These last two years have been trying enough with just trying to get to a place where I am no longer injury prone. Send some prayers or good vibes my way as I visit a doctor and PT this afternoon. 🙏🏻

Someone asked me the other day what I needed in life before making the decision to become a coach. I’ve probably answered this 20x. I’ve been a coach for nearly nine years. I’ve had multiple answers from a discount to better health to accountability to fulfillment. But this time a completely new answer flew out of my mouth.
“Guidance,” I said. .
🔸I knew I wanted to be one of those women who didn’t tear herself apart when she looked in the mirror, but I wasn’t.
🔸I knew I liked the idea of reading a book, but I didn’t do it on my own.
🔸I knew I wanted to feel comfortable in all of the clothes in my closet, but I was sticking to the same three outfits that hid my insecurities.
🔸I knew I wanted to take charge of my future and not feel stuck, but oh...I felt stuck!
🔸I knew I didn’t want to stress about a budget, but even filling up my gas tank stressed me out.
🔸 I knew I wanted to belong somewhere, I hadn’t felt that way since my dance team days.
Saturday sunshine, Saturday workout done! I didn’t break my streak...six consecutive days including 2 morning workouts that I usually don’t (won’t!) do! Incredible what you can do when you put your mind to it. .

It was a good one today. My hamstrings welcomed the running. They are still tight, but I had a session with my acupuncturist and it released my muscles enough for me to stretch more deeply than I have been able to in quite some time. Omg. Felt like a breeze across the water on those 800 meter runs today. 🌟. Two runs back to back?? I can conquer the world.
3 rounds for time:
800 m run
Finished in 19:55. I had to scale two rounds of push-ups because my arms are sacked!
