I have missed blogging...I have a new laptop now, so I can blog away!
I had a great, productive week in Florida, logged lots of fitness minutes, tracked, and lost 7 pounds. Unfortunately, the last day I over did it on the bike, and strained my hamstring again. It hurts so bad I could hardly walk on Sunday. I rested it for a couple of days and today I go to my first physical therapy appointment. I am hoping to be able to get it well enough to walk the Miami ING half marathon that I signed up for. Now I am back in COLD Chicago it is harder to train, but if I can get over this hamstring injury I will if it kills me...
I am going to take my work out bag to the appointment and swim afterwards, using only my arms again.
The wonderful people on Sparkpeople totally encourage me. My Florida gains may have been undone by the injury, but I see people on Spark who have overcome such bigger obstacles, and that gives me the spark to press on.
Have a great day!
