The one about best laid plans....or good intentions....

I forget the quote that would be applicable in my current situation but it's out there somewhere. All gung ho last week and ready and able to go......only to be hit the next day with the flu of the year! Chest cold, coughing, NO energy whatsoever. I literally laid in bed until yesterday.
So yay, my first day back at work today! 11:15 rolls around and I am off to a chiro appointment....out the office door and BOOM! I'm on the ground....only to spring right back up in case anyone is watching through the office windows. I brush myself off and walk to the car....and slowly the pain rears it's ugly head. I've done something to my ankle, my knees are skinned and bumps are slowly growing.....in fact melons are now taking up residence in my knee and ankle as I speak.
So I'm laid out on the couch with ice wrapped around my ankle. My dreams of starting the month off right have gone out the window. I guess it could have been worse, a lot worse. I can walk, painfully. I was on my way to the chiro so she worked a bit of magic. I'm not sure how much good it did but it was something in that moment.
I'm attempting to look at the bright side because it's been a rough month. Aside from just being extremely busy, our house is still a shambles with the basement renos....the contractors are taking their sweet time about it (walls and ceiling are done....no telling when we'll get the carpet!). J has been a bit off as well so that, plus both of us being busy with our own things....we've felt distant the last little while. Aside from that, it's TOM's turn to visit which is playing with my emotions.
I really want to work out, go to the gym and establish a routine, be on the road biking and running.....I guess I'm going to have to wait. That's how I'm kinda looking at this.....like the brick wall finally came up and is forcing me to stop. It's been a busy, rough month.....maybe it's time to take a break and let the stuff happen.
My duathlon dreams are still dreaming......will I be ready in less than a month with a sprained ankle?....um, not sure. We'll see.....
