Foot Bruises and 600’s

Hey Everyone!

Just wanted to give you guys an update on what’s been going on in my life the past few weeks. As you may know from a previous post, I decided to get new furniture for my apartment. In the previous post, I had pictures of want I thought I wanted to get and of course just like a female I changed my mind lol I ended up getting a bedroom set and new bedding that is gorgeous! I also bought a couch. And picked up a coffee table, t.v. stand, dining table, and bookcase from ikea. I am very pleased with the result 🙂 Once I have everything in order, I’ll post pictures. I still have to get paintings, window dressings, another small bookcase, and other things but I love the way my apartment is looking now. Before it had a college feel to it but now it is grown and sexy lol

Anywho, while I was trying to assemble all of my ikea purchases, I was moving the door to my bookcase out of the way and somehow ended up dropping it on my foot! Ouch! I bruised it pretty bad 😦 I took about a week off from training because I was in pain whenever I put a lot of pressure on it.

Yesterday was my first day back at practice and I decided to practice with the team (most of the time I practice by myself because of my busy schedule). Because of my foot my coach and I decided to have me go longer. 800 breakdown 600/200 split. I ran the first 600 feeling really good and really pushing the last 200. I was well ahead of the girls I was running with and felt like maybe I was running too fast but since I only had one I just went with it. When I ran the 200, I really went for it and gave it everything I had left! I felt really great at the end and thought I had completed a solid workout. To my dismay, I was then informed that we had another rep! :O I had killed my legs on the first rep!!! Needless to say the second 600 was a very ugly sight :/ My legs were completely dead and I was wayyyy behind the pack. Fortunately, I pulled it together for the second 200 and finished only a second slower than the first.

So, the lesson for the day was “Always know your workout, so you can plan accordingly” lol I won’t be making that mistake again lol I hope all is well with you guys! Stay tuned for my updates and stay blessed 😀

  1. Basically, you were set up. No one told you that you had two sets….not the coaches and not the other athletes……until you had already finished the first run. Lol. Sucker!!! Just kidding girl. The second set revealed your character because you could’ve easily decided not to do it since you weren’t explained the entire workout in advance. But you hung in there, in pain, and finished it anyway. Although comical at the time, you learned something about yourself that day.

    1. Thanks for the comment! I actually didn’t think of it that way but you are right! Although, while I was running it thoughts of stopping crossed my mind, I kept going and pushed through 😀
