THE PARTY'S OVER.............

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Today an old song's lyrics keep running through my mind.

The party's over
It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away
It's time to wind up the masquerade
Just make your mind up the piper must be paid

This song popped into my mind as I climbed onto the elliptical this morning.

My pity party is over!

WAH WAH WAH....my feet have been a painful reason to miss an entire month of running.

When I finally was able to run again, I found that I had also developed some knee pain. Was this a result of a change in my gait while trying to deal with the foot problem?

BOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And then it was the holiday. A "great" excuse to miss my fitness. And days of baking pies meant lot's of time on my feet which sure didn't help with the pains. Oh and sitting in the car for hours two days in a row....Yeah, that was helpful!

And then of course it got really cold.

YADDA,YADDA, YADDA...............

So I guess I threw myself a pity party. I sat around feeling sorry for myself. And, That my friends doesn't help with any of the issues!

The thing is, my friends didn't accept the invite. I got some good wishes to feel better soon but not one of you was willing to join me in the pity party.

I suspect if I continued this pity party for too much longer I would have found my tush to be sore and bruised since I don't think you would have given me too much more leniency.

I am grateful that I have friends who won't support my self destructive behavior.

The party's over
It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away
It's time to wind up the masquerade
Just make your mind up the piper must be paid

The elliptical felt good.

My ST felt good.

Our post lunch walk felt good.

Tomorrow, I may be sore. Actually, I'm sure I will be. But it'll be the good kind of sore...the kind I earn...not the kind I wallow in. You see, I KNOW that my knees have always benefited from movement....it's called lubrication.....and mentally I benefit from movement as well.

So glad.... emoticon the emoticon is over! emoticon

    Glad you're back in the saddle. The reason we left you alone was because we know you are strong enough to get back to it on your own. Maybe feeling you were partying alone was incentive enough to rejoin us.?? emoticon

    I may not have joined you, but I have hosted that very same pity party at my house, yes indeed I have! Glad you're calling the party over. That's always the right call emoticon

    Uh oh, I was just having my own pity party over here. Maybe I should embrace what I CAN do, and not what I can't. Thanks for the timely reminder.

    You know we might give you a moment of tea and sympathy before kickin but. I understand the pain part, I walked to fast in the airport after sitting for 2 1/2 hours and my hip sure did hurt, sat on my duff and whined for two days-I'm over it and am glad you are too.

    Sounds to me like you've got a handle on it. The hardest thing for me (while recovering from my two serious injuries) was finding something else to do while I healed ... I'm not the most flexible person when it comes to that kind of thing. Mostly, I want to do what I want to do, regardless. My body is not that forgiving these days emoticon

    It can be sooooo hard to move when it's dark & cold -- add in pain & you've got a recipe for disaster! So I think you deserve a pat on the back for getting back in the saddle, so to speak.
