Yup it's true and sad too. Everything is on hold. October 28th I had to go into day surgery to get my big toe fixed finally. I injured it early on in race season and I think it was even injured during race #1. Well somewhere between race 9 and 16 it was getting progressively worse with pain, or so I thought it was bad pain.
Anyways the procedure went well to fix it but more work then anticipated was needed so the toe nail would grow back in properly. It make a long and gross story short I am in worse pain then I ever thought I would be in. Almost thinking I wish I didn't have it done due to being in so much pain. Ended up missing 2 days of work because of it. All I want to do is lay in bed and rest. I am going thru a bit of a cranky spell too cause well I can't run or do all that I was starting to do again with my newly found mojo. I was on a roll and kicking butt at it. Felt so great to get back into the swing of things. But with all this laying around I have way to much time to think and wallow away in self pity at times. I know this will eventually get better but it's times like this I miss a man in my life to be there when I am feeling like a baby and need help changing the bandage (that was the most pain I have been in btw... Almost passed out from the look and the pain), to hold my hand, rub my back and say everything is going to be alright. Like I said way too much time to think and miss things in my life. Not a good space for me to be in. Oh and wearing sandals is normally a great thing for me but in this chillier snowy wet weather not so much. Cold feet suck and a cold sore super sensitive toe even worse.
So with all that and being busy at work we are now starting my sons indoor competitive soccer season this week too. Has practices 2 nights a week and games every Saturday. Today's first pre-season game was intense as a parent watching it. Those boys played so well despite loosing 7-3. Ty is playing in a higher tier as well this season and has been stepping up to the plate and showing these coaches what can do. I can't wait to see how his indoor season goes and where his skills are at the end. So far 3 days a week we will be traveling for soccer which could be worse and I could be throwing in more training too but will be doing my training now at home or close by. I took my first ever spin class and I gotta say I kind of liked it. Plus I didn't die doing it and it showed me that I guess I am in pretty good shape. Having 16 races completed and countless hours of triathlon training really paid off. All I need for my at home training is an indoor trainer for my road bike and aero bars for the bike and it will be complete.
Until next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
