plain and simple.
i am angry, actually, i am beyond angry. steeple yesterday, SUCKED. sure, i ran a decent time for my first steeple, 11:00. but.....the water pits alone cost me 25 seconds because YES, i stopped on every single one of them (ok, my second jump had some grace) but all the other ones, no, i stopped dead in my tracks ANNNND in the process bruised my heel (i hope that is all it is) so bad that i now can not walk normally. yes, i will be getting crutches tomorrow because im not risking another injury by compensating for my heel.
i'm not mad at my time nor even how i raced. i'm mad at my technique, i'm mad that i don't have experience, i'm mad that now i'm probably going to have to take off AT LEAST a week (which i can't afford) . yeah, you may say i'm exaggerating, but i'm not. i know my body, i know degrees of pain. and this isn't something i should be messing with. this is stupid. this is frustrating. this all could have been avoided if i jumped the water pits correctly or had more practice over the barriers. i swear i didn't go over the barrier ten times in practice before i raced it. ugh i just want to cuss really really loud and scream and just be angry. DUMB!
that being said, i got a ton of great pictures from the meet as a whole. it would have been an enjoyable day had i been able to walk around, but the pain suppressed any endorphins that may have been produced.
i just want to cry.
ok, so i will.
