Last week, my running/workout goals came to a screeching halt, or should I say scratching halt.
Two weeks ago while helping out at an outside wedding, I was unexpectedly assaulted by mosquitoes. I could feel them feasting on my legs but did not see the results until the following day. It started with just one (doesn’t it always?!?!) little itch, but before I knew it, my legs and arms were just burning, begging me to scratch them. Many sleepless nights were to follow.
By the time Monday rolled around, I was in so much pain that I decided to forego my Body Pump class that I am incredibly dedicated to. I felt really guilty about that and vowed that I would go running Tuesday, no excuses. Two seconds into my run, I wanted to quit. I pushed myself to finish what might have been the post painful 5k ever, but was very proud that I did so. After I stepped off the treadmill to survey the damage, I could see what was behind the discomfort.
So here we are, a new week, leading into a new month. I’m excited to push myself to new limit and make the most of any spare time I may have.
