Well, the good news is that my Bloglovin is finally set up. The bad news is that I am still having several technical issues that suck me in for hours at a time. I used a plugin to password protect my site when I was getting it set up, and some of the pages are still showing up as needing a password even though I deactivated (and deleted) the plugin. So frustrating! (By the way, the password is blank so if you run into that issue just click “Login”) Anyway, I needed a break from all that so I thought I would talk about October running!
This was my first full month of consistent running since June. I ran 3 days a week (never back to back) and got up to 7 miles by the end of the month. I think my total monthly mileage was around 58 miles.
Things aren’t 100%, but I’m getting there. I still go to PT every week or two but maybe not for much longer. I will have weeks where my foot doesn’t bother me at all, and then I will notice it a little and get really nervous. My PT thinks that’s normal and that it will happen for a while.
The other issue we are working on is my core/SI joint. This is probably what led to my injury to begin with. Apparently my mid-back is really stiff and doesn’t really rotate, which can put alot of pressure on the SI joint. When that gets out of whack it can cause all sorts of other problems, so I am sure it’s related. My SI joint has given me trouble on and off for years and nothing I have done has really helped. It never really bothered me when running and actually usually feels better when I am active. I would love to get it resolved once and for all.
So what about my other goals for the end of 2016?
-I’ve kept up with Pilates once a week, and I’m actually really enjoying it.
-I updated my blog! There is still more to do, but all the big stuff is done.
-I’ve been trying to just do what exercises feel good and that I WANT to do. (Ok, so I never really want to do PT but I know I have to). There was a Saturday that I just didn’t want to run because it sounded so windy out, so I rode the bike instead. This was a big deal for me because Saturday is always a running day.
-I have been adding some new veggies into the rotation, but not as much as I planned. Some new ones have been kale, zucchini, and spaghetti squash. Oh, and I got “Run Fast, Eat Slow” for my birthday so I have been trying some of those recipes!
-I have done terribly with taking time to turn off my brain. Just awful. I need an intervention.
How did you do with your goals in October?
Have you tried any new recipes lately?
Who else needs a technology intervention?
