I got to freaking RUN!!

Yesterday I went to PT thinking it was going to be a usual session. I worked with a new to the office physical therapist for the second time. He asked how I was feeling and I told him my foot actually feels completely normal-that cortisone shot worked! He said great, let’s get you on the treadmill to do a run/walk.

I was NOT expecting to run. I thought it would be another month. Unsure if it was a good idea, I asked another PT who I have worked with from the beginning if he thought it was safe. He assured me that with all of the pool running I’ve been doing, it was okay. If there was pain, just stop.

Well alirghty then.

I ran/walked 25 minutes, by that, I mean there was more walking than running. But I am beyond stoked because just about 3 weeks ago I was on crutches and now I’m running and jumping off boxes.

I am now convinced that wearing anything purple + Mizuno is good luck.

Then I met up with Heather at Fisherman’s Wharf for an afternoon ride. Isn’t she the cutest!?

We did the Pacific Grove {PG} ride on Ocean View road. It’s along the ocean so we watched the waves crash against rocks, sea life moving around and fought a wicked headwind. Thankfully that tailwind on the way back rocked.

This has been on my list of things to do since we moved here. It’s heavily traveled by car, cyclists and runners. If you ever come to Monterey, do this then feel free to send me love notes. Or wine. Winking smile

Pink/black, sleeveless, cute + comfortable = SCB approved.

We are having record breaking ocean temps and extra warm days.  Bam and I are cool weather beach bum sissy la la’s and are no longer used to the heat.

What was the most exciting part of your week?

What is the weather like where you are?

If I come to visit you, what should to hit up?

  1. Look at those smiles! I was insanely happy when I saw your IG posts. I don’t give out Cheeeewhooos all willy nilly. It also got you 2 shakas and a star jack! I’m smiling so hard right now!

  2. I’ll see you passing me on the trails soon, no doubt! In the meantime, you’ll have to accept dragging me along the pool lanes… 😉
