Know what I suck at? Taking it easy. I admit that I didn’t take it THAT easy this week, but the fact that I couldn’t wear shoes, and therefore couldn’t run, was very helpful. LOL.
After CIM, I did NOTHING for seven days, and I haven’t felt so depressed in a very long time. This time, my approach was a bit different.
I usually recap my weeks from Monday to Sunday, but since Phoenix was a Saturday marathon, I’ll start with the day after.

Nothing!..besides limping around airports. I spent Saturday night in Vancouver with my besties (dang) since flying into YVR on Saturday from PHX was a shit storm and I missed the connection to Terrace.

Sweet f*ck all AGAIN hahahah! I did it! I did nothing.

Swimming! So obsessed! And I committed and registered for the Olympic distance at the Tyhee Lake Triathlon on July 8th! Better be swimming more!
Wednesday, February 28th
Day off work! (thank heaven)
Early Bird Spin at K2, which I haven’t been to in a while. Since I still couldn’t wear a shoe on my right foot (on antibiotics at this point) I wore a Hunter sandal and thick sock on that side. LOL.
Followed by…another swim! Wooooo. I friggin love swimming. No beating on the body.

30 min on the recumbent bike in our basement. Not my fave, but an option 🙂
Friday, March 2nd
Early Bird Spin again, followed by more swimming! Getting the hang of going straight from the pool to work.
Note: we are now at SIX days of no real shoes, and no running. #humblebrag
Saturday, March 3rd
It was time.
8k aerobic with Jess! Heel felt fine! It’s a different story trying to walk, when my foot goes into full dorsiflexion, but running was alright! CELEBRATIONS!
Sunday, March 4th
16k aerobic with Jess, again! no problems 🙂
I have to say that I am, in ways, grateful for that little setback. It helped me swim all week, use our recumbent bike for the first time since we received it as a hand-me-down, and to think about my future plans without getting too excited and skipping rest.
What’s next for you?? For me, getting back into five runs/week, just one hard session for now, and gradually upping the cross training where it fits into my life. I’ll test out my first 5k race on St. Patrick’s day, and after that comes the Prince Rupert 1/2 Marathon at the beginning of April! Talk soon!
