Welp, if you follow me on the ‘gram, you already know I didn’t get the news I wanted at the podiatrist Friday. Although nothing showed up on the X-Ray, the doc said the clinical signs all point to a stress reaction/fracture. So what does that mean? It means 3-5 weeks of no running, elliptical or Pure Barre (major sad face), but I can bike or swim. After leaving the podiatrist I went home and did a lot of this:
My Saturday was pretty lazy and unproductive–ok actually super lazy. Brandon and I went out with friends Friday night and had a little too much fun, so we spent the majority of the day napping on the sofa.
Saturday evening, I headed over to the Navy Yard area to cheer on my Oiselle girls at the Pacers beer mile race! I had originally signed up for this but obviously couldn’t do it with my wonky foot so I had to sit out. I’m not gonna lie, I was really bummed but it was still fun to meet everyone. Look at my girls flyin by!
We also took a pic with Lewis Kent, the national beer mile champ!
I also got my medal even though I didn’t participate.
I spent the rest of my Saturday evening watching Bloodline and eating these delicious treats (from TJ’s, obvi).
Sunday morning Brandon and I slept in until like 8:30, then hit the gym. Here’s my life for the next few weeks:
I also took Rusty pup on a little walk since it was so nice out. Look at this goober.
I refueled afterwards with my fave Sunday combo.
We also treated ourselves to a little al fresco dining at our favorite Mexican spot.
After dinner, I met up with some of my Oiselle girls for drinks! I was supposed to go to Courtney’s Pure Barre class but canceled after I found out about my stress fracture. Good thing booze cures all ailments!! I had so much fun meeting and chit chatting with everyone.
I spent the remainder of my Sunday evening resting my foot, eating chocolate and watching TV. Perfect way to end the week!
Have a great Monday!
