Getting the "Jitters"

Monday, May 06, 2013

Less than 5 days until Mud on the Mountain! I am getting the jitters! I am so nervous, excited, anxious and about 1,000 other emotions I don't have any way to describe!

My hip has been bothering me again... ugh. I went to the Chiro today and he popped it back in, but it still hurts. After Mud, I am going to have to take a week or two off. I don't really want to do that, but I will if I have to. I don't want to risk further injury and be laid up for even longer. I will just have to pay VERY careful attention to my nutrition. No extra snacks, low carbs, very limited grains, no BLTs... the reason I am able to do that is because I workout a lot. I will have to drop my calorie count down... I can handle it. LOL

I was thinking maybe light walking would be ok... but I would feel so stupid being at the gym and walking at 2.5 mph on the treadmill when I am used to a lot of different. I am not sure which I will do, but I will need to take a little time off. I am just afraid that a little time off will turn into a lot of time off... but if I don't get this hip taken care of it could turn into a lot of time off regardless.

I bought a few great dresses on clearance at Kohls - the one reminds me of my Grandmother's couch circa 1975 - it is great! I will post pictures later.

I think that is all for now

    You will have a blast at the Mud, but yes do take care of your hip.

    You will do great on your Mud on the Mountain!!! You are definitely ready for it and yes, your body probably could use a break, a little change in your routine once you complete your race! Maybe try something that's less pressure on your hip, like exercise in the water or maybe yoga... that way you are still burning calories but not putting as much pressure on your hip??

    Anyway - Have FUN with your race!!!

    (Way back when I still ran 10kms I developed plantar faschiitis (That spelling can't be right, but anyway) because of a tight ITB I now stretch that sucker as much as I can. Tight ITB can also seriously hurt hips. Have you been to phisio? Has he given you stretches and exercises to do?

    OHHH!! How exciting is Mud! If you could tell Courtney of before GBS what you would be up to now, she would be blown away.
    Sssooo proud of you, Friend.
    (I really love your Can Do, Said I Would Now I WILL, attitude)

    I know what you mean...I have had a bum foot for a while now. I'm waiting for my doctor appointment, but until then, I haven't been working out like I am accustomed to. It really bothers me, and I have to keep telling myself that I don't want to risk further injury.

    Have an awesome Mud Run then take some time deserve it!
