So 1 week from this Saturday I am to run my first ever 5K race. As you remember one of the things I put on my New Years Resolution list is to run a 5K by the time I turn 40 (which is in June). Well last Friday at work, I did this:
We were taking apart the partitions at work and one of them had a shelving unit in it and it was top heavy and it dropped on my foot.
It is a good thing that I had a tennis shoe on instead of my dress shoes that I normally wear at work. Who knew working in a law office could be so dangerous? So I went and had it x-rayed. Luckily nothing is broken and they gave me this lovely post-op shoe to wear to keep from flexing it. I came home and iced it, elevated and kept the compression shoe on it. Which helped bring the swelling down. By Saturday morning the swelling was done to 1/2 of what it was on Friday. So I haven’t run at all since Friday. I do believe that I will try and run tomorrow. Any runners out there have an opinion? The swelling is almost gone, now the bruising is the lovely yellow/blue color and it only hurts a little bit. In fact, I got away with wearing a kitten heel to work today.
So since I was not able to do much over the weekend Hubby and the kiddos worked on this:
They worked on getting the walls up for the shed. Yep, it was wet but they actually got all 4 walls up and I haven’t even taken a picture. Bad, bad person. So the last few nights I have worked on painting the basement walls. As you recall, last year we took it from one big room into 3 separate rooms. The family room is the last one to be painted. I’ve had a terrible time trying to figure out color but Hubby has decided he hates the white so I had to get it painted. Hopefully it will be done by the weekend and I can show you the finished project.
So is there anything stupid you have done that caused you to drop out of a race before?
