This week is busy with so many appointments! I have something schedule everyday this week. That is not very normal for me. Monday was a doctor appt to get blood work done to check where my levels are to see what type of vitamins I should be taking since I started eating Vegetarian and Juicing. Tuesday I had my first session with a buddhist psychologist (I could go into detail here, but that could potentially be a completely separate blog post so for now i’ll leave out the details). Today, I met with my back and leg doctor who’s helping me get through my pains of marathon training and later I’m meeting with the nursey director at my church. (I’m going to start volunteering in the sunday nursey twice a month). Tomorrow I see a foot specialist to see why the arch in my foot is hurting so bad when I run and on Friday I get an ultrasound to make sure this pain in my lower abdominal is not a torn tendon or something worse (I’m pretty sure its just a pulled muscle, but doc was worried since it’s been there for almost a month). WHEW! Too much scheduled for one week!
This training for the marathon is no joke. Every time I run something new hurts or a new problem arises. I’m confident I’m doing everything right to have the best training possible and taking all preventive measures to not end up injured, but it’s hard work!
Yesterday’s juice was so delicious I couldn’t wait to share, but I got distracted last night by a good friends company and well a very large cinnamon roll that I know is completely off limits, but entirely too delicious not to try. I’m not even going share today’s juice. I was in the biggest hurry and just threw a bunch of ingredients together, I think it consisted of apples, sweet potato, broccoli, carrots, beet, cucumber, ginger and celery.
damned cinnamon roll 🙂
