in PAIN..and SCARED.
Thursday, July 28, 2011
As some of my long time spark friends may remember, while training for my first marathon (feb), I hurt my knee towards the end of the training due to messing up my hip in yoga and then running with it out of whack. With LOTS of ice, rest, arnica and chiropractor visits, I was able to run (and mile 6 and beyond - hobble), and finish.
Well now, I am training for my second marathon in October...weeeeelll knee is HURT as well as my low back and hip. They are all swollen, and I am hurting.
Went to the chiro yesterday and he confirmed just how swollen they all were, and out of whack. He adjusted me, said get back on the arnica, ice and put a rolled up towel under back and knee every night for 20 min before bed and take it easy.
Fast forward to today. Took vacation day and went to disneyland (already planned for over a month). Knee, according to friend, looked a little swollen but felt okay..by afternoon, my lower back was killing me! And now, my knee just feels 'unsteady'.
I called my trainer and cancelled my session for tomorrow..and he said good idea to just rest, and not to run long run this week, and will ease back in.
But now..I'm worried and even more depressed.
I still dont have my eating under control. my attitude is down and now i am stopping my training? I am scared I wont be back on track soon enough to do this marathon. I'm scared I am getting depressed. And I am scared that I wont get my eating back to healthy and I will continue to gain.
Things are not looking up right now, and I feel on the verge of tears. So frustrated I wanna scream!
