I am not looking for pity, well maybe a little. I have had a bad week and it followed such a great weekend, it seems even worse.
I am training for the Breast Cancer 3 Day. Check out more information here: www.the3day.org/goto/milesformelissaHV. This is my second 3 day. It is an amazing experience! The first 3 day I participated in, I OVER trained. Big time! As a result, I ended up with tendonitis in my feet and was unable to complete all 60 miles in Chicago. This time I was determined to not over train and take good care of my feet. I feel like I have done both, but they are starting to get sore. The longest walk I have done is 12 miles. That may sound crazy long, but remember I am looking to walk about 20 miles a day for 3 days. I talked with the woman that I will be walking with in Cleveland and we agreed that I will train what I can and save my feet for the walk. I can do anything for 3 days and I will deal with the pain after. It is nothing compared to going through breast cancer.
On top of that, I woke up on Tuesday to a somewhat sore neck. I figured I just slept wrong but still called my chiropractor. She is fantastic but is on vacation until today. Of course, my neck has gotten more stiff and uncomfortable. I have a call into her to get fixed up today. Fingers crossed that a little work from her today and probably next week, unties the knots in my neck and back!
Okay, complaining over. I am alive, enjoying summer, and looking forward to a great July!
