Yes, I am NOT happy with the result of today's game against those damn Cheeseheads. UGHH! The refs did not help the Vikings out too especially during the start of the 2nd half. UGH! The Vikings SUCK!
Well, my night last night was not that great. I had a very busy event last night and was very tired when I got home. After I took my bedtime meds, I hit the sack and went to sleep. Unfortuately, the sleep was not completely sound....at all. I woke up THREE times with throbbing pain in my ankle and strong sense of thirst. I finally woke up at 6 am, ate a banana, took some Advil, and drank some water before heading back to bed. I did not feel at all rested by the time I woke up at 9 a.m.
I totally cancelled by run this morning with the TNT group. I had some pain in the bad ankle and had a gut feeling to not run today. I decided to listen to the feeling and rest it out today. I called the running coach to let him know that I will not be there. He agreed with my decision and felt it should be looked at again. It does not hurt to walk, but has been bugging for the last day or so sitting my desk. I would rather sit it out again this weekend, continue with the eliptical machine, and see the doctor to have it looked at. I may even finally give in and request a PT referral even though I have received awesome help from fellow RBF members. **sigh**
I feel horrible for not running and it's getting closer and closer to race day. I have stay committed to my training and fundraising. I do not want to let anyone down, especially my dad who's watching over me right now. I have so much personal stress and anxiety going on right now that I need to release it. Running is my personal source of therapy and adreniline release.
Plus I have been eating really badly lately. (Yes, this Firefly is not perfect in the dietary consumption too.) I blame the stress and pressures to increase my emotional eating. Plus the gloomy weather has not helped at all. I went grocery shopping on Friday night after work and bought a lot of healthy stuff to eat. I need to get myself back into the routine again. I need a swift kick in the pants by my friend, Chris too.
I plan to get back on the eliptical machine tommorow morning before or after the chiropractor's visit along with some weight training. I will get back in the saddle. I just need to find a way to do it. Again, I am NOT a quitter.
