womp womp.

i went to the gym this past weekend for the 1st time in a LONG time. my arms still feel like jello. my workout plans have taken a different course over the last month. last seen here, i was hoping to train for a 10k this summer. welp, because of this little thingy, things have changed and I will have to put those plans of running a 10k on a tentative hold. the shots and other therapy care haven’t been working so i’ll be getting surgery to fix the disc. it’s a fairly common surgery, and apparently i’ll be left with a pretty rad scar on my neck, but i’m still scared. I don’t care who you are and what you’re getting done, but getting surgery should never be a calming activity. i’ll try to blog as much as I can during this time. i think I’ll be able to since i’ll be in bed most of the day with a good book watching bad reality tv. i don’t see the harm in turning on my laptop next to me – but i can’t promise anything. so as I was saying, i won’t be able to work out for quite a while but i’m determined to get in as many (safe) workouts as i can before going under the knife. So on sunday boyfriend offered to train me for the day and helped me with light arm weightlifting. i even did the bench press which i haven’t done since high school (i know it’s hard to believe, but I used to be one buff teenager!). boyfriend was so cute. he was so in his element when showing me different ways to hold the weights and all that mumbo jumbo. afterwards i did 20 minutes on the elliptical and ran 1 mile. i thought the run would be excruciating considering I haven’t been since thanksgiving, but it wasn’t at all!

i can’t wait to be fully recovered in the next few months so i can put my resolution to work and finally get to that 10k. I’m also looking forward to being able to work out on a regular basis and not feel ANY pain whatsoever. buh-bye herniated disc, hello 10k!




(someone totally caught me sleeping on the couch...at least i'm not drooling)
