JENN: HA. The beginning part or the end part? The beginning part was awesome - I was still in Walt Disney World. The second half kinda sucked a little. I missed a step on the stairs and busted up my foot pretty bad.
Not only could I not run all week, I was supposed to have a ballet performance on Saturday. I hoped by the time it rolled around I'd be able to at least do one of my dances, but no dice. My friend Lucy was in town to help out with the show, so I threw my costume on her, taught her the steps really quick, and she subbed for me in one dance. The other just didn't have me. Oh well. What can ya do.
MOON: !! Nothing broken or sprained I hope?
JENN: Nah, I had two physical therapists look at it and the consensus was an irritated tendon. It's not 100% yet but it's better. I'm gonna do floor barre at ballet tonight, which is basically the same as regular barre only you do it lying on your back. Maybe by the end of the week I can run a little? I don't want to push it too fast so we'll see.
MOON: Awww... I am sorry to hear it! I missed a step this week as well, but I lucked out and was okay. Sometimes they just seem to come out of nowhere.
Well, on the bright side: this happened the week AFTER the Wine and Dine.
JENN: EXACTLY. If I had had to miss the marathon or Wine & Dine I would've been CRUSHED.
MOON: Although, I can see yourself wheeling yourself through WDW.
My week was pretty good. Still keeping up with strength and speed training.
JENN: Did you have your 5K yesterday? You should do a post on it!
MOON: Yup! On Sunday I participated in the MMRF (Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation) 5K at the National Harbor! I WILL do a post. But, to be brief: was awesome, but COLD.
JENN: Yay! Looking forward to your report.
I'm a trifle behind on blog posts for the roundup, what with all the WDW-ing that went down last week, but here's a smattering. Go forth and conquer!
- We Run Disney explores the science of dating a marathoner.
- Fairytales & Fitness showcases a nifty race shirt blanket.
- Parkeology made WDW46 happen!
- At Disney Again mourns the Maelstrom. Never stop crying.
