Belle swimmin’ with friends!
Beautiful Belle in a field of Spring flowers at the lake
After a couple of months of solid training under my belt, I started to feel a bit of pain in my foot the past couple of days. The athlete in me said to push through it BUT the coach in me said to stop and rest! So what did I do? A little bit of both, I ran, but ran shorter and then rested. I am sure the cause is plantar fascitis and since I have been compensating just a bit, I tweaked my knee. I sure hope all of this goes away as quick as it came on. I am sure it will. I had to teach two back to back spin classes today for a total of 2 hours and 15 mins, but afterwards I decided to call it a day. I iced and then headed to the lake with R and B!
Belle played tons and tons and I only walked around for a bit. I am seriously trying to stay off of my feet as much as possible today in hopes of a miraculous recovery before tomorrow’s planned workouts. If I’m not much better, I will have to change plans and do what I can. No big deal right?! I am so much more flexible with myself and much more relaxed about things this year. It really does feel so good to say, ‘you know what, it’s just not worth it to push through this pain and cause greater injury.’ Last year and years prior I would push through every pain and end up really hurt by the summer. And I would still race…what was I thinking? I guess we all learn some time or another and it is never too late to change!!
On another note, I am happy to say that I am part of a very cool group of Lululemon girls, TriBabes
This is such a special group of girls and I am so excited to be a part, a couple of pros and a couple of super stellar elites make up the TriBabes! We are all spreading the word on how amazing Lululemon really is. Online shopping is coming very, very soon….. Yippee!!
That’s Belle (Lululemon mascot ) flying up to her friends…check out those ears
