runbabe asked: Unstable cuboid bone in my foot (hopefully... if it's not getting better in the next while I'll have to get it x-rayed to rule out a stress fracture) = moon boot (hopefully not for too long), taped up (plus a piece of foam taped under my foot too haha oh god) + the real banger of no running for three weeks. What a fucking way to start of my training cycle for TUM... this week was going to be my first 100km week and now we're looking at zero. How grand. How are you going (other) B? -B
AHHHHH B. i’m sorry i have been so silent recently. I had moot court/pro bono/class/journal and it was wearing me out. i have all your messages saved and i keep meaning to answer but finding the time is terrible.
i am so sorry about your cuboid! i know a dude on the university team who had the same problem. we always ended up at the pool together, he aqua-jogging and me swimming. maybe you could try that?? that way, your fitness won’t be compromised as your foot heals. also, three weeks will fly by. trust me. three months with a stress fracture will teach you that, heh. fingers crossed on a speedy recovery.
let’s see. i am running 2-3 miles a day now? i have PT on mondays and wednesdays, and they say i’m progressing well, but i keep forgetting my exercises…ARG.
i am actually getting really depressed because i can’t help feeling really, really really fucking fat. i haven’t been this heavy in so long and i am just not comfortable with it, even if it’s new muscle or whatever scott keeps telling me. i just want to run it all off. i want to be skinny. but all i do is binge and purge.
i will be seeing a therapist soon though. fun.
