Wishing it away will not produce results

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I injured myself. I am so angry. But that is ok I am not depressed and I can focus that energy into my training. But none the less, Plantar fasciitis has reared its ugly head on my poor right foot once again. I have stretched. I have given myself some time off of it, one week, to see if it would diminish.... It has not.
I called the rehab center yesterday to make an appt. I got the machine. urgh. I took the day care kids outside to enjoy the lovely weather. I returned in the house a couple of hours later to see that my daughter did not hear me and did not answer the phone when it rang and the clinic called. Deep breath. Muttering out loud about would it have killed you to get off the couch. bla bla bla. I sit on the couch at nap time and picked up my cell phone off the table. The clinic called my cell phone. if i only had it on me I would have received the call myself. Urgh. The clinic closed at 1 pm. I missed calling them by 20 minutes.
So my plan. I will go to the gym tomorrow and find some swim time. That does not hurt my foot. I will call the clinic back on Monday. I will heal my foot so that I can do this tri. and reach my goals.
The problem with wishes is that you not tell anyone them for fear that they will not come true. You expect that it will magically come true with out the effort. The difference with goals and wishes is that you write them down, announce them and work toward them.
What are your goals?

    Oh no! Sorry to hear about the injury! Good idea to swim instead. I hope it doesn't stick around too long!

    That is SO true about wishes. Somebody said this morning in a meeting, she had wasted so much time on her fantasy goals, that she gave no time whatsoever to working towards them!

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I know what you mean about telling people. I feel like I am such a let down sometimes because I make plans, then I change my mind. Just how it goes & I am learning not to beat myself up over it.

    Hope the foot gets better & good for you on the swim. Keep on Keeping on.
    That is what we do. Never stop trying! You will do this.

    Hope your foot is feeling better very soon. Kinda going through the same thing here and I know how frustrating it can be. Remember to BE NICE TO YOU!

    Have a great Saturday.

    Remember you have a partner in crime right down the street and she is more than willing to listen to the frustrations and find alternative ways to move our bodies without the pain. I'm so glad you called rehab. Karla was such a huge help last time. And just to let your peeps know - the Tri isn't until Sept. 11 - so she has plenty of time to get injury healed. I am confident she is going to be fine. Still a little over 90 days away! Rock it Jeanne!!!

    I know that you want the Tri! But the point is to get your foot healed and that might mean you have to focus on the next Tri. Please do not get angry with yourself - accidents and injuries happen.

    Hold on tight and think positively but be realistic too

    Oh Jean, I'm so sorry. That totally bites. But hey, you get to perfect your swimming, right? And can you bike? That would be 2/3 of tri training!

    Was thinking of you, been getting in touch with some buddies who've been out of touch.

    Hang in there. I hope it can just be a little pot hole and not a huge crater. Your attitude is great, focus on what you can do towards your training and hang in there. This too shall pass.
