Okay, I am BEYOND frustrated with this foot injury!!!!! Dang right getting mad about it!!! Just being 100% honest!!!! But, on a good note, I am resting and not trying to push through it!!! Although I did try to run a bit to "test the waters" today..... Not a success. Seriously, after about a half of mile, the pain caused me to start walking! SO, guess I am not at a point where I should ease back into running.
So, lets talk about the pros and cons of a running injury! As the photo above, I was able to clean my house, but I have a LONG way to good! My house is a mess!
Another pro, usually I run in the morning first thing and before showering, I run and do errands. By errands I mean grocery shop and get things for the house like toilette paper! Well, because I didn't run, and I actually went grocery shopping after getting ready for the day, I was able to browse the store (Target). Well, I scored MAJOR cool mommy points with these! So simple, my mom made these when I was little, and so cool & refreshing in summer! And here is south Georgia, it is HOT!
PRO.... I am always an early riser... even if I don't run. Early to bed, early to rise. Anyway, was able to do water color painting first thing this morning with my son who is always up early. Yes, this is a Christmas tree! This is what Ben chose to paint. Guess it really can be Christmas all year round!! LOL!
PRO... was able to catch this picture of my son with his prized catch of the day. He looks a little unsure in this picture, but the face is from squinting due to sun in his eyes!
PRO... I spent a lot of time on Pinterest today, and came along this prayer... definitely something I needed to read! I have read it before, but needed to re-read today!!!!
OK, now the cons..... #1 I CAN'T RUN!!!!!! Waaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! #2 I am getting FRUSTRATED! #3 Actually getting mad!!!!! #4 I had to back out of a 5K today!!!! #5 I had to cancel a group run tomorrow!!!! Boo! :(
Ok, all done with the cons and complaining! Thanks for letting me get that off my chest! I feel better! LOL!
On an upbeat note, I received this post on my Facebook page notifying that I won a Mother's day photo session from a local photographer that includes the session time, photographs, and a free 8X10 canvas print!!!! Now this made my day and put a smile on my face!!!!
All in all, I just can't complain and must be patient!
Have a great rest of the night! Until later.....
