Not Exercising is Harder than I Thought!


It may seem silly, and I actually thought I would enjoy these few days off from exercising but I miss it much more than I ever expected to!  I still can’t put full pressure on my foot because most of the stitches are across the bottom of it.  I knew it would be two weeks with stitches so I expected it, but thought I’d at least be walking around a lot better than I am!

It sure makes me appreciate my grandma and her need for a walker and how exhausted she gets just moving from room to room!  My calves are sore from all the walking on my tippy-toes.  I don’t know how women wear high heels all day.  Give me my flats or sneakers anytime!

At least I don’t feel guilty for not being out there exercising.  Normally, when I feel like taking a day off, the guilty feeling comes over me and I get out there and do it.  Since I can’t, I am not having those feelings.  Instead, I am finding myself missing it.  The classes, the running, the long walks…

Only six more days until the stitches come out and hopefully then I can resume normal activities again.  I am sure I will be looking for an excuse to not exercise as soon as that happens, but at least it is nice knowing that I will have the option!

    I tore my meniscus back in March and had to have it removed. The time away from exercise killed me as only another exercise lover would understand. 🙂 Hope everything goes well and you will be back at it again next week!

      I figured that I’d welcome the break from it for a few days, but I do miss it. Even if I am not running again next week, I will be happy to just get on a pair of sneakers and get out for a nice long walk!
