2. Smart....am I being smart now and listening to my body? Why yes I am. Thank you for commenting and telling me to listen to my body. I checked my blog comments several times in the last couple of days because I needed to hear others telling me not running is smart. I so badly wanted to run today. It didn't hurt like yesterday. But I had publicly said I would not run today and I didn't!! I do plan to swim tomorrow but I am not sure when the whole run thing will happen again. I have not been singing running's praises for quite awhile so I am amazed at how much I miss it but man I do. Johann said it best in my comments with yet another S word: "Even though it sucks big time it is still the fastest way back to full recovery."
3. Swimming....how I love you swimming! Your low "impactedness" allows me to get a workout in. I may not be any good but you don't care. Up and down the pool, up and down the pool. That's not the way to get better? Who cares! I am working out, I feel good when I am done, my confidence in swimming is building, I know I can do the distance and not drown and most important of all, you are keeping me sane.
And I'm aware that I am hitting the publish button on Wednesday, not Thursday, but in order to be sure there is room for me in our newly crowded pool I need to get up at a ridiculous hour and get there. No time to check Facebook, play Words with Friends or publish a post.
