I am not a hypochondriac.
Nor am I a big doctor person in general.
Mostly because I think I’m much like Super Woman. Or maybe Catwoman. Her outfit is way hotter.
Either way, I often refuse to think there’s every anything wrong with me. I’ve had nasty sinus issues take me down once or twice in the last few years, but other than that? Healthy. The epitome of it.
But there’s one thing I’ll be an overprotective mother about ALL DAY. And that would be my legs.
Ever since my incident with crutches and an overuse injury a few years back, I’m horribly paranoid.
So any weird ache feeling that can’t be pinpointed? Time off. Throw in my incident on Saturday?
This girl has no desire to get back on the treadmill before she has to.
So I lied yesterday.
Still went to the elliptical for 25 minutes last night. But I didn’t run this morning and opted for more elliptical and cross training in the form of Jillian Michaels dvds. For a girl who enjoys her title of “cardio queen”, you know there’s a little bit of resentment there.
But there’s a slight ache. And there’s no need to push myself right now. Less stress on the legs now means better results in the long run. No pun intended.
A few days of “low key” won’t kill me. I’m just bitter. And overly dramatic. I realize this. Thanks for not minding too much.
Happy Hump Day, friends!
