That is where I am.
A dead stop.
No working out.
Nothing. For a few weeks.
Not by choice, but by force.
A torn gastrocnemius ( calf muscle) .
the cause ? A jumping jack. One. HOW LAME IS THAT?
it happened one week ago today, but I didnt go to the DR till this morning. The swelling, bruising , and pain not getting better, made me go.
I am now in a boot from toe to knee and they wished I would have taken the crutches as well, I thought I would probably break my neck with those and the boot , so I declined. As I sit here and type my calf is in complete spasms . I think that is the worst part of it all. those things suck.
I feel like past 4 months have been such a struggle, and just when I was getting things going and feeling good with my workouts again ( I had just completed month one of INSANITY when this happened) This setback has jumped in to say, " NOT SO FAST GIRL" ! I do not know what to do. People say " ohh do upper body, " ummm..... HI, I am still dealing with my shoulder injury from LAST DECEMBER. so Upper body has taken a hit as well. now this.
I am at such a loss. I said to Scott tonight " I wonder if I can do hot yoga these next few weeks ?" he looked at me like I just asked him if we could go rob a bank, I got the Are you F#*&ing me look, followed by " BABE, YOU CANT TO ANYTHING!"
I dont like that thought.....
