First of all...I see I have a few new peeps that are following! Please leave a comment so I can make my way around to your blog!
So, it's official. Money is down, there is no turning back now.
Running Kalamazoo May 8th...and turning around and running this gem the following weekend:)
Oh yea for maniac status.
Training is going okay. If you want all of the details, find me on daily mile because I would hate to bore you with the details:)
I'm beyond unhappy with the results of my MRI. It pretty much will take me out of Chicago, and New York would probably be pushing it. So sad because I had pretty much lined up a sponsor and was ready to run. The Dr was already not happy because I told him fixing it wasn't an option until after my races in May.
According to my MRI, I have a labral tear, partial thickness supraspinatis tear (one of the four muscles in the rotator cuff (NOT CUP) group, thinning of the infraspinatis, cysts and bursitis. Yikes. And while I love my dr (he's the surgeon who fixed my right rotator cuff tear a few years ago) he's kind of conservative and I would be in a sling with NO ACTIVE motion for 6 weeks. Which is awful. And he said running would hurt for 3 months related to the pounding. Jeesh. With my last shoulder surgery which I had in July, I wasn't even released back to work until November. It's a really long recovery. So, even if I have my surgery in May after my 2nd marathon, I won't even being feeling amazing until at least August. Maybe it's enough time to recover for Chicago, but it makes me a little nervous. Plus, I really can't afford to take that much time off work right now and be able to take care of my monkeys. So frustrated. So I'm starting therapy tomorrow which I know will probably not work (I tried it for 4 months last time with no avail), and we'll reevaluate in 6 weeks. Cross your fingers for spontaneous healing:)
I'm going to try and end my posts now with monkeyisms...funny things that the monkeys say and do. Tonight I'm posting a video of Jack singing the little Einsteins song from a cartoon that he LOVES! My most favorite part is when he "reeves it up"...I seriously laugh out loud every single time!!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
