This past week wasn’t necessarily one that I would write home about. Scratch that, I would write home and probably complain to my mom about my trivial issues including my hip that will most likely force me to not run the Nike Women’s Half marathon come this Sunday (still TBD).
Apparently, my excessive amount of time on a plane last week really messed with my hip and has sidelined my running. I went to a new chiropractor for some intense (and not cheap) ART and let me tell you…it hurt so good. Plus, with Chicken Face busy at work and school, I feel like it’s been a hamster wheel of a week.
However, even hamsters have highlights in their day and below are the few things that really made me appreciate life, even during the monotonous times.
After a long work trip, I was welcomed home with flowers, a card and surprise Mochi ice cream from Chicken Face. #swoon
We all know how frustrating it can be to have to stop running for an injury, but in place of running, I’ve alternated swimming and yoga every day this week. While I have anxiety about not getting as sweaty as I would like, I know that it’s a safe and smart alternative. Plus, I’m actually starting to enjoy my slow and steady swimming.
One of the last things I did in Chicago before I left was run on the lakefront path. Look at that view! Look at the sunrise! It will go down in my book as one of my all-time favorite places to run.
And because you can’t go to Chicago without getting some deep dish…
