Yupp, that's right. This girl's a bit crippled, and will be for the next 6 weeks.
What does that mean, exactly?
It means that I have a stress fracture. No fun.
It also means that I can't run in either the Mud Run or the Half Marathon. Also no fun.
Am I disappointed? That's an understatement. But here's the time where I have to practice what I preach. The whole focus on the good bit? This is where that becomes a challenge.
And I like me a good challenge.
So what else does this stress fracture mean?
It means that I'll be focusing on my diet for the next 6 weeks, something that I've been trying to do for the last 9 months. But with working out so much, I became wayy lax with my diet. So it's time to switch things up, and pay a lot more attention to what I'm putting in my body.
It means that I'll be focusing on my faith for the next few 6 weeks. I have complete faith that God is in full control at this point. I recognize that my identity lies in Him, and I think over the past few months, I've been letting things get in the way of our relationship. I definitely feel like this fracture is a blessing in disguise, a reason to devote more time to my relationship with God.
It means that when the time is right, I'll start hitting up the gym again by focusing on weight training. Especially the abs region, stomach flab: you are no longer welcome.
Basically, there is definitely a lot to be disappointed about. But, I have 6 weeks to focus on other things, and I fully intend to make the most of them.
Also, to all of you who sent tweets/texts/instagram comments my way yesterday? Thank you. It meant more than you know.
**Also, Happy Birthday!! to the most amazing Dad that I ever could have asked for. I love you so, so much!!**
