Concluding // That this was not my week for running. On Tuesday morning I only made it a half mile before it started pouring rain. I soldiered on for a bit, but decided to head home because I didn’t want to risk my phone getting wet and dying. Since my run had been cut short, I decided that instead of sleeping in on Wednesday morning, I’d get up and make up for the lost Tuesday run. So I did and after ~2.5 miles, this happened:
Hobbling // With crutches for the first time in my life after spraining my foot on my fateful Wednesday outing. I rolled it on a pinecone. Yep, a pinecone. How annoying is that?? I limped home and went about the morning routine. I really thought I was going to be able to walk it off. But after sitting at my desk all morning, I got up at lunchtime and could barely put any weight on my foot. Jose picked me up and off we went to get an x-ray. Nothing is broken, so that’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s a midfoot sprain that could take several weeks (or longer) to fully heal so half marathon training is on hold…mere weeks after starting. Needless to say, I am pretty disgruntled about this turn of events for many reasons.
Hoping // That my foot doesn’t prevent us from having some fall fun this weekend. I’d been planning to take the girls to the pumpkin patch tomorrow. Maybe Jose can pull me in a wagon along with the pumpkins, eh?
Feeling // Excited about my new niece Amelia, who was born yesterday! Yay!! I can’t wait to meet her — although it will probably be next spring before we’re able to go to Charlotte.
Sewing // A new quilt for a friend’s baby, who’s due to arrive before the end of this year. The design is based on a barn quilt and it’s looking great so far. I’ve been very inspired by barn quilts in general lately — something about a single oversized block in bright, bold colors has really caught my eye. I wonder if I could hang a barn quilt on the outside of my house? Can that be a thing?
