Well, I'm past the overly emotional place I was last night - where panic met with a feeling of depression and despair.
I just couldn't think that I'd been working for nearly eight weeks and that it'd been ruined by being a clutz. I couldn't believe that all of the progress I'd made in growing my running endurance had been dashed because I was in a hurry and careless.
Well, it has yet to be seen how far my injury will set me back. I went to the Urgent Care facility and had a couple of xrays run. No broken bones and the diagnosis of a sprain with an air cast for a week. Or longer.
I'm going to keep my optimism where it should be - and believe that this will heal up with a week off of it. Then I will repeat C25K week six. That's it. It's that simple. I can do this.
I've done well sticking to my calorie goals the last few days. Just over 1200. I'm going to maintain that goal and try and be even more focused upon managing my food as I don't have to stress about preparing for workouts just now.
I suppose the other good thing is that I get to spend more time getting my costumes ready for DragonCon.
I'd rather be training, but at least I have things that can take my mind off of it.
