It’s been a nice weekend here in B.o.B.land. As mentioned previously, the Redhead came for a visit on Friday. As most of you know the Redhead is one of my closest friends and I cannot thank her enough for her support. She brought me a little cheer up card and some amazing blinking lights for my bike tires. (Love you boo!)
We had our usual crazy Friday night. Actually, we ventured out for some early evening Publix shopping. Then we returned home and did our pre-Saturday run/bike rituals. (She does these stretches that are absolutely hysterical.)
Saturday morning we awoke to a rain storm that didn’t stop until about 3 PM. I thought about calling that one dude who built that that big, big boat a while back and asking for some instructions. Wonder if he has text messaging?
Anyway, I was going to ride my bike and the Redhead was going to hop in with the B.R.A. for her 20 miler. She didn’t want to run it in the rain and I can’t say I blamed her.
So we headed back to “Compton” and did some working out at the gym. (By the way, certain residents of Compton have started stealing the free weights from the gym. You stay classy, Compton.) After a quick (READ: amazing) nap we met the B.R.A. for the post-run breakfast. The B.R.A. gave the Redhead some good natured ribbing for not running in the rain.
On Friday while IMing with the Redhead I devised a contingency plan. More on that next week.
Should things not improve significantly with the ankle I’ll fill you all in, I am not ready to divulge just yet, because I am hoping not to need the plan. That being said, it’s a good plan.
The ankle feels better today and I am walking more like a normal person and less like a zombie. I have doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning because I need answers. I need definitive answers in order to really move forward and take back control of this situation.
While I have been trying to remain positive, the last two weeks have been a blur of muddling through un-fulfilling aqua jogging and Pilate’s. Runners, you know it’s just not the same. It’s like Velveeta vs. the big orange blocked marked simply CHEESE. (Bad analogy?)
Anyway I will certainly let you all know tomorrow what the doctor says. I am sure they are going to prescribe an Xray.
Until then, you can head over to the other blog to get a little chuckle from my recovery tips. I hope you all had a great weekend and that your training is kicking butt!
I think the cheese analogy was perfect. Or, as the case when I was growing up, when mom would buy store brand Frosted Flakes vs. Kellogs. NOT the same, not even close.
I really hope you get some answers, I'm glad to hear the ankle is feeling better!
I love the analogy! It's like Diet Coke vs Diet Cola.
Sounds like you two had a fun weekend, despite the rain getting in the way of your run/bike.
Mmmm, velveeta! Hope you can enjoy it again soon!
Off to check out the other blog. 🙂
I'm sending you good thoughts on your ankle. Hopefully, you'll find out that it is nothing serious tomorrow. At least you will know though, that's the worst part is not knowing!
The cheese analogy was perfect…. 🙂
i love your analogy!! best wishes tomorrow.
Oh, I'm so sorry your ankle is still giving you problems. Hopefully you won't need that back up plan!
Well fricky frack…..
Atleast you are doing other active things since you cant run.
You best call me THE minute you leave the doc's!!!! I am sending positive mental vibes to the wonky!!!
Thanks again for having me over and as always for checking in! Luv ya boo!
P.S. Dude I still can't get over how ghetto Compton really is.
What's wrong with Velveeta? Ha!
I hope the doc can get you back in shape and pounding the pavement again very soon!
Eating cheese while you Aqua-jog…………….
OK, finally checking back after reading your article. FUNNY, as always. I love your sense of humor. LOL at # 8 and 10 especially. 🙂
Hang in there and enjoy the sex, heels and donuts in the mean time! (perhaps not all at once…)
hope the beer therapy is going well 😉 sorry to hear that your ankle is still being a bugger but excited for "plan b"
