Just some randoms

It scares me how much time has passed. I feel like just yesterday i was sitting here writing about how March was going to be the beginning of my year and now it's nearly done. I am still not where I want to be and I'm frustrated. I keep saying I'm going to get in shape and then I just mess up, what's up with that?!?!?

And while we're on the topic of getting in shape. I can't run. Literally. I went from badly pulling an inner thigh muscle so badly I couldn't walk, to a cyst that needed surgery and meant nearly no movement for 3 weeks, to shin splits that hurt when I walk and I can't run. Again. *Sigh*. I am hoping a few days of no running will do the trick. We'll see.

On a happy note, I am going to California on Friday. YAY!!! I am so excited for wine and nice weather and seeing my great friends. I have the day off from work tomorrow and I'll spend it getting some errands done and visiting Ylaria at MSKCC before coming home to pack. Ylaria always brings a smile to my face. Even when she is kicking me off the bed and refusing to let me color.

Thanks for letting me vent. It's really not that bad. It's nothing that can't be fixed. And if life has taught me anything, it's that the getting in shape thing is nothing at all. Friends, and sunshine and good wine and Ylaria's smile-- they're the things that matter.

For the shin splints - try walking/running on non-pavement surfaces (grass, or that rubbery stuff they use at gyms and high schools for running tracks). Also, ice your shins and when you do start running again, try not to slam your forefoot down when you run - try to strike with your heel/midfoot. Striking with your heel tends to reduce the shock and then there's less shock to your shins and hamstrings.

I'm so jealous you're going to CA! I'm looking at a grad school there, so I'll be heading this this summer hopefully to check it out. :-)
