For the first time this injury isn’t caused by running but because I am a klutz.
Meet the stair that ruined my life (okay, I am being just a tad bit dramatic).
Non-matching and inside out socks are the way to go.
7:36 a.m. Tuesday morning:
Brooke and I usually go on a short walk in the morning right after she has eaten. We had the stroller inside our apartment and I always take the diaper bag anytime we leave just in case she needs 5 diaper changes during our 15 minute walk? I was carrying all of those things and Brooke in her carseat when I tripped on that above rude stair.
There was no way I was going to be dropping Brooke down a flight of stairs and the only way to prevent that was my back twisting in the most awkward way possible (at that second I knew I messed up something back there) and then slamming that same back of mine into the railing.
Today is day 3 of absolutely no working out (besides lifting Brooke which probably isn’t helping matters) and it feels a tiny bit better but I think I will have at least another week or so of no running.
I am just really thankful that Brooke didn’t get hurt.
All of you doctors reading: there is a big knot/bubble/something weird on my lower left back? What in the world is that?
You better run for me today and for the next week:)
I am not going to lie, it is nice to have slow, relaxing mornings were you stay in your pajamas and don’t even think about putting on a sports bra every now and then.
Onto happier things. As you know, I went through my huge jar of crunchy pb the other day. We have another HUGE jar of smooth pb and I have been very sad thinking about having to eat through that entire jar before going and buying more crunchy pb. This morning I was going through our cupboard and there was another giant jar of crunchy pb hanging out in the cupboard. My mom bought us some groceries when she was here visiting after Brooke was born and she must have bought 2 jars of crunchy pb, that woman is a saint.
Speaking of happy food moments, it is finally hot chocolate weather here. It isn’t really that cold but it is raining (sorry Utah people that you are covered in snow today) and that means I need to replace drinking water with drinking hot chocolate all day long.
I think Brooke thinks I was going to share some with her.
Off to a petting zoo with the Brookester!
Anyone else on a running break? How come?
Ever had a back problems…. any tips on making it feel better?
CRUNCHY or SMOOTH or you like them both and don’t understand why I am making such a big deal about it?
Had any recent klutz moments?
