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!
