Not healing fast enough

Again I wasn't checking Garmin. I just ran until my right leg, knee, fibula, joint or whatever the hell it is told me to stop. I would have liked to do 5mi or so, but that's not what happened. I still need to take it easy since I'm not completely healed. I should start checking Garmin to monitor my pace. I think I'm running slow, then I check the stats to see that I'm running a lot faster than I thought. A 12:00/mi is an easy pace for me. It feels like the walking of running. Maybe I should watch closely to make sure I'm doing that. The bad thing is that I hate being outside longer than I have to be.

In other news, I need to concern myself with my caloric intake. No, I do not count calories nor do I diet. But I just thought about the many calories I will not be burning if I can't resume my training as soon as I'd like. This past week, I was due for 8 and 9mi runs. Yeah, so not happening. And I'm not sure when it will happen. In any case, I need to watch my food (as I put it in my mouth). It's not like I eat everything that's not nailed down. But every now and then I want something greasy or I'm making sugar cookies. They are healthy sugar cookies, but still, they're sugar cookies. I just need to be conscious of how much I'm eating during this time. I would hate for my next entry to be about how my pants aren't fitting the way they used to.

Delurking to say that you are the healthiest eater I've seen in a long time. If you need to watch what you eat, I'm in biiiiig trouble! :)

I really enjoy your blog, Christie, and I'm especially impressed with how well you keep all your stats!

Your yoga routine sounds really interesting. I never regret taking time to do yoga but I have to admit I'm getting a little bored with the same DVD so I tend to brush it off more often. Is the program you use a series of DVD's?

Rest and get better, Christie. There's always another time for running when you're healthy. There's always another time (as in not this time) for that sugar cookie too. :]

That stinks, I'm in the same boat though! You'll be all better soon!
