Things are starting to look up already! Last night I went to Body Pump, which as you may or may not know is my Favorite weight lifting class ever! Well it is the only one I have ever taken but I love it! Unfortunately it was jam packed as it is the New Year, but I know that will fade out as time goes on. (I could write 5 pages about the annoyances of the gym, as many have, but I am trying not to focus on that). ANYWAY! After I got home from BP, while my amazing hubby was finishing up dinner I went and did a slow mile on the treadmill upstairs. I am happy to report NO knee pain, even on the climb down the stairs after I felt great! So I think slow and steady, recovery is on its way. I cannot stress how important this small milestone was to me. I was starting to worry I would never be able to run again…Okay no more talk of it, because I hate to jinx myself!
Also, I have news on my writing. I have officially decided to go to a meetup.com meeting and have someone other than myself read my writing. I am terrified. Every time I think about it I feel a hot ball of lead twist inside my stomach. Right there! Did you hear that? My insides just went Blerrrggguuugghhhh…
Oh well, this is life right? There is going to be critiquing and there may even be rejection. But I am determined that can only make me stronger. It is high time I started taking advantage of the signs the universe is giving me! I plan on emailing my co-worker’s wife right after this to plan a meetup coffee date thing.
“Do or do not, there is no try,” truer words Yoda…truer words.
