JENN: All right! What’s the latest on your hip? Is it treating you better?
MOON: I tried running again last night! It only mildly hurts today. So I figure I don’t run today, maybe try again tomorrow!
JENN: Seems like a wise plan. Not bothering you in every day life, then?
MOON: Only when moving quickly. XD And sleeping on that side is still really uncomfortable.
How’s your Achilles tendon?
JENN: Eh. I mean, it’s kinda better. It doesn’t bother me much if at all when walking. Running or – God forbid – trying to take a ballet class, though…
I’m getting a little worried; the WDW Marathon is less than a month away now. If I don’t see marked improvement soon I may have to just stop exercising beyond walking at ALL for a week or so and see if that does it. Which I know I maybe should have done already, but not exercising gives me anxiety. O.o
MOON: Yeah, I hear you. Yikes. What’s the longest run you’ve had since it started bothering you?
JENN: Haha. Um. 13 miles. It was supposed to be 18, okay? I CUT BACK.
MOON: Ha! Well, the bright side is this: You’ve got PLENTY of time to finish the WDW Marathon. Worst thing to happen? You have to walk a portion of it.
JENN: This is 100% true. (Mostly.) But I don’t WANT to. :/
MOON: I knnnnnow. What about your winter show? Has that happened yet?
JENN: The ballet show? Yeah, that was last month. It was fine. I danced through it. Been cutting back since then, though, as ballet as pretty demanding on the foot/ankle. I haven’t been doing any jumps or rises on my right foot. There’s no ballet for two weeks during winter break, so that’ll help with the resting thing.
|Dancing is very demanding.|
Anyone have any advice for an angry Achilles?
Other than that, all I can do is distract myself with the roundup:
– The Runner’s Guide to WDW considers proper recovery post-runDisney race.
– We Run Disney knows what’s up when it comes to holiday eating.
– The Disney Blog visits The Ganachery in Disney Springs. I may need to stop by…
– Davelandblog highlights some weird vintage Disneyland promotional material.
– The Disney Tourist Blog recaps the most recent iteration of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
