WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
As I stated before, I had surgery on both of my feet this summer and it has been tough. Some of my good habits have been replaced with bad ones and I have not worked out since my first surgery! I could have continued to do upper body workouts, but I am just too lazy.
I had been running for quite a while. I was training with some of my friends to run the Mercedes Half Marathon ( 13 miles) in February of this year. The Thursday before the run, I broke my foot. Everything went down hill from there. I had to wear a boot for about 2 months. The boot was extremely heavy. It felt like a child was strapped to my leg and I had to carry it around all day. My eating habits changed, and it seemed like I kept a cold and ear aches.

At the end of March, my foot was healed, so I began to run again. I was nowhere near where I was before I broke my foot. It was just like starting all over again. I am happy to say that I did complete my first official 5k run (3 miles) before I had surgery for the summer.
I had my first surgery on May 24th and the 2nd surgery on June 21. To go from my lifestyle of doing for others and working out to depending on others has definitely been an eye opening experience. My feet are healing, but I don't know when I will be able to do long distance running again.
Back to Square One:
I will begin walking hopefully by the end of July. I am going to be over the walking division with WJR Club (Walk Jog Run Club). It will be just like starting over for me, so I do encourage anyone who would like to start walking, to please join me.
