The Fairest Week In Review: 11/25

JENN: Did you run this week? Tell me you ran this week. Somebody's got to have run this week.

MOON: I did a lot of running!

JENN: Whew!

MOON: Speed AND distance this week (go me!), ha.

JENN: Yay! I haven't run in two weeks. :( My foot is taking its sweet sweet time to heal.

MOON: ;-;

JENN: And it's SUCH a terrible time for it, because not running makes me feel like I really really really need to watch what I eat... AND IT'S THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING. AND in addition to Thanksgiving proper, I have an Experimental Recipes Thanksgiving with at my boyfriend's brother's place on Wednesday AND my roommate is hosting a Friendsgiving on Saturday. ARG.

MOON: Better to let it heal completely!

JENN: You're right. Better to let it heal than mess it all up further. But I hate the way not exercising feels.

MOON: There's always ballet!

JENN: Sure, but my foot's so messed up I can only do floor barre and I can't do any jumping or turning, which is the most cardio-intensive part.

Basically I'm just whining. All I can really do is try not to go overboard on food and wait for my foot to feel normal. If it isn't showing marked improvement in a week, I may even go to a doctor... but if it gets to that point, I'm kinda scared...

MOON: I didn't exercise yesterday at all and it felt really weird. Not to mention exercise keeps me saneee. But I'm sure once you start running again you'll be even faster. Taking a break might not be such a bad thing.

JENN: We'll see. Oh well. I am thankful. I am thankful that it isn't worse.

MOON: I know it sucks when you're literally surrounded by food and awkward family situations, but you're a lovely lady and your foot will be better soon!

JENN: <3
