Lost a Spark Friend

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The internet is a very dangerous place and this week I found out exactly how dangerous it is. It's frustrating to try and find friends who have the same goals you have and who are in it for the long haul! I've been at this for 4 years. There are a lot of people out there who try for a couple months and then fade away. I really need a buddy to stay accountable with, and someone who is in it for LIFE, like I am. And when those friends who are in it for LIFE disappoint you, well it's just hard to move past it.

This morning I'm eating pretty well, but had an extra granola bar. Yesterday's exercise really took the energy out of me, plus I didn't have enough sleep. I took a Tylenol PM last night and kissed hubby goodnight, and slept SOLID all night. I needed that; too much waking up in the middle of the night panicking about homework! That's been happening almost every night for about 2 weeks.

My foot is feeling okay. It's tired, but the pain is under control and I'm taking care of it better. Ice, ibuprofen, and rest when needed. I ran intervals last Friday, and I ran intervals again on Monday. The 2 full days of rest are really helpful. Tomorrow will be my next running day. Curiously, it doesn't bother me to run on my foot at all. Standing around bothers it, and sometimes walking or stairs bother it too, but running, not. I'm sure I'm using different tendons and muscles when running than the other things I do, but it's reassuring that I'm not having the pain when I run.

Well, I guess that's about all for now. A bit melancholy today, and I'm sorry for that. Time to Spark On.

    That's why I went looking for you elsewhere before. I like keeping in touch with my friends, even my cyber friends. I'm glad you came back here too.

    You really do see a lot of people come and go while your at this. I guess all we can do is try to keep making new motivated friends hope they rub off on us =) Losing a fitness friend is hard though, I cried when I lost one of mine recently. Life happens and priorities change. It all just sucks! Great to hear your foot is better! I hope your test goes well! Your my hero, I am so bad at math. I had to take 1 math class in college and it took me 3 tries lol
