I'm Alive

Saturday, August 10, 2013


So I am back with a brief video about whats been going on and what deliciousness I am drinking. Please excuse all my "nose picking." Went to a wedding in the woods the other day and my allergies are nearly killing me.

Torn tendon

Saturday, June 29, 2013

So Wednesday I went out in the evening to go for a walk and decided to jog a little. It was just over a mile of jogging but it was a horrible decision. I knew something was off a few minutes after starting but I let my pride get the best of me and instead of calling my husband to come get me or just walking home, I ran the rest of the way. By the time I got home I was in tears and barely able to get up the stairs. My right tendon was swollen to the size of a golf ball and putting pressure on it was impossible.



Four days later and I can finally walk on it but just barely and only for a couple minutes at a time. It swells up after being on it and it hurts a ton. Best thing I can do is rest it, ice it and prop it up. Also ibuprofen has been my best friend the past few days.

I've had a real ego hit from this the last few days and knowing I am out of racing on the fourth of July it's killing me. Because I was in the middle of my training for my 10k in 4 weeks and won't be able to run for at least 3 or 4 more weeks I am not going to be able to run the 10k either. My pride and ego are basically broken right now and I have done nothing but cry and eat junk food.

Maybe I am being a big baby about not being able to race but I have put a lot into this and not being able to do it, is killing me.

    Oh man! So sorry! I injured my knee and had to quit running. Doc says not ever. Hope your foot heals soon and you can get back on track. Don't be so hard on yourself. Consider it a lesson learned. Good luck with the healing. We are cheering for you.

    Jaco! So sorry to hear that you've been grounded temporarily! But let me be the big bad meanie here: Stop with the junk food NOW! Just because you've fallen, doesn't mean you need to roll all the way down the hill! Besides, it will just mean more weight to bear on this later!

Please be kind to yourself. See a dr. No need to punish yourself over something out of your control. I am saying this with love. If you think you feel very bad now -- wait & see how much worse it will be with added guilt and pounds!

Please - be kind to Jaco. She's injured but not down completely!

    To me, it looks like the posterior tibial tendon - which contributes to arch support. I wouldn't be surprised if the doc asks you to wear a rigid boot for a couple of weeks (or months, sigh).

Hang in there!

    Not a baby, maybe more upset at your foot and the fact that you've been training hard. But you can go cheer others on or support the run in another way. I'm no doc, but it looks like bootom of foot? It doesn't look like achilles. Have done many MRIs for plantar fascitis, and those looks like they hurt. I had to get shoes with higher arches. Please be careful on it.

    I loved your vlog! I can see, feel and hear the excitement in your voice about your favorite pair of shorts and how they fit now! You will find a new pair to take their place, I'm sure.

Best of luck on the 10K and even more, best wishes for you son. I will keep him and you in my prayers.

You seem like you are a real "sparker", so with your determination and motivation, you will do well.
