Has it been 4 or 5 weeks? I’ve lost count but it seems like forever. Well, at least forever without running. Or physical activity. Or shoes for that matter. I haven’t been able to wear shoes and I miss shoes – I’ve been living in flip-flops and as much as I love flip-flops, they can only take you so far. Stupid stress fracture.
Honestly, I’ve discovered I really don’t enjoy any other forms of exercise other than running and lifting weights. I started lifting weights last week and it’s been enjoyable; I have that nice, lingering soreness in my arms, legs and abs. I can’t believe I’ve missed that kind of pain.
I’ve kept busy by working in the yard, training Cherry, organizing the cupboard, teaching Rowdy to swim and cleaning the pool. We’ve never had a pool before and if you can get past all the maintenance and cleaning it requires, it’s so much fun. Rowdy doesn’t think so, though. If it’s not a soft blanket or a nice bottle of wine, Rowdy pretty much hates the world.
So there you have it, Stationary Susan’s boring life. Mock me, I give you permission.
