Thrift store winter coat.
I LOVE SNOW.
I didn't want to bike. To be honest, I didn't want to do anything but read my books and drink coffee. I really would love to run through the snow littered streets wearing shorts and a t-shirt. But through persuasion of a teammate, I went to bike my life away. He said it would help the healing process and maintain my fitness. I don't want to be at that point again where I just don't care about maintaining my fitness, I don't want to be at that point where I could give up. I want to have surgery this weekend so it will be permanently fixed by the end of indoor. Who am I kidding though, my injury/set-back is no where close to surgery-worthy!
Am I just meant not to run track in college? It's always December. What is wrong with December? Three straight Decembers I have not been able to run. It's truly absurd.
I biked 60 minutes again today. Maybe I should be going longer than that, but I am not a fan of the bike nor do I know the slightest thing about training on a bike. I honestly hate it with a passion. Running on a treadmill would 9 times out of 10 trump biking, and that is saying alot seeing that it could be 10 below and sleeting and I would still be outside running. So, there. I biked 60 minutes and read for about 40 minutes. Music gets really annoying on a bike, has anyone else experienced that sort of annoyance? Almost like a baby screaming in your ear but you can't change your scenery. I stared at a poster that says Strength and Will-Power. Obviously, my mind needs a lot more strength and will-power during these stupid set-back periods.
I know this may be one of the most depressing, ho-hum, woe is me, i hate my life blog posts, but seriously, I am tired of these set-backs. I know every runner goes through them. I know that. I just am a little emotional right now.
I honestly Love Christmas more than you ever will
So, let's focus on the positives of this set back.
1. I can cling to God tighter than ever before
2. I am able to free myself of distractions
3. I can reprioritize myself
4. I get to work on different muscles as I cross-train
5. I can think about my goals without my current progress hindering my thoughts
6. There are probably more.......but clinging to God is the best thing that could have happened to me.
I always look back saying injuries were the best thing that had ever happened to me, I just wish I could get that mentality through my thick, stubborn head right now.
LOL LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND ON MY MOM'S COMPUTER. I AM SO STUPIDLY AWESOME. LOOK AT HOW YOUNG, WEIRD, AND PARTED MY HAIR IS. :) OH WHAT A CHILD I WAS. :) IT MAKES ME SMILE.
