Here comes a new challenge…

Well I am all wrapped up and on the road to recovery 😦 The visit to the doctor’s office did not go as planned but I wanted to figure out what was wrong and we did. I guess that is a good thing. So the diagnosis is that I have plantar fasciitis. It is not ideal with the whole concept of my blog, but if anything it will only challenge me (i did say i like a challenge) and make me work harder to achieve my goal. Image

So the treatment is 3 weeks of steroid shots and minimal usage of my feet. Which is extremely hard for anyone, but I work 10 hour days at this time and friday through sunday I am home with my sons (2) and (6 1/2 mths). Not being on my feet for more than 4 hours a day is not going to really work. While this bump in the road is a bit discouraging it has not made me want to give up. I am determined to do what I set out to do and hopefully in a couple months I can start to jog and walk again. 🙂

If anything this will only make me reach out and find more resources and learn more about pool workouts and cycling. So in the end I will gain even more knowledge that I had set out to gain in the beginning. 🙂

That is how I am going to stay positive! This week will be preparation for Monday and I am all revved up to take it all on.

  1. Congrats on making the commitment, I know you can do it!

    Yikes! Plantar fasciitis is not something you want to mess with (but the tape looks cute). Do what the doctor says and DON’T PUSH IT! Hopefully the pain will pass quickly and the recovery time won’t take as long as they predict. Keep your head up!

    Just finished a decent little work out here… still trying to ditch some excess weight. My Dad is joining me in Cleveland for the 1/2. So, now I really have to pick it up, he’s Mr. Fitness these days and I simply cannot be outdone by a 53 year old. Haha!

    Much love – Zellers

  2. Thanks Zellers!! I am not pushing it too much! I have taken this week to give much thought to my approach and I am still as excited and maybe a little more than before I started. It is all about beginning of new healthy lifestyle anyways so this will only make me have to really try harder! 🙂 That is so great that you are doing the 1/2 with your dad….You will do so great. Stay motivated! You are an extremely hard worker I have seen it both on and off the field in college. So get into beast mode! 🙂
