i got my MRI read this past week. thankfully, there is no tear; no fracture, no serious setbacks. i was told i could get an injection in the site because it was just some serious inflammation and fluid around the tendon. i decided to hold off on the injection. i asked if i could do a dose pack first (some serious anti-inflammatory drugs). i have been taking these for about 3 days now. i am seeing some small improvements here and there. i can no longer feel the pain while in the boot and when i get up in the morning, i no longer have intense pain. this is great news. i am still killing it on the bike and find it rather relaxing. i get really bored so doing a workout every single day helps keep the fire alive.
yesterday i biked with carson. we did 1-2-3-4-5-5-4-3-2-1 with one minute rest in between each interval.
today i biked 10x2min fast with 1 minute rest in between each interval.
my lungs are busting and quads are aching. i, dementedly so, enjoy this. i noticed that i am getting really dehydrated lately because i sweat SO much on the bike. am taking some electrolyte tablets in hopes to regain my SPUNK! especially because finals are next week. i have a paper due at 11am on Tuesday and a Biochemistry Final at 8am on Thursday.
Regardless of how my foot turns out and regardless to the grades i post this semester, i am beautifully and wonderfully made in the image of Christ. I am loved and accepted by His grace alone. I am NOT defined by how fast i run or the grades i make. everything is in God's hands. i can't wait to see how everything works together for the glory of God.
Peace Love and Grindin'
