When last we left off, it was the before my PT appointment. I had a lot going on last week and so when I got to my appointment I was very much ready to get it started and get treatment started.
Except I didn’t have an appointment at all.
While the desk told me that I had an appointment on Monday they actually put it into the computer for Tuesday. No way could they squeeze me in and there wasn’t another appointment open till the following week.
I did a faceplant right on the receptionist’s desk. In my mind.
If you’ve ever dealt with a sports related injury, then you know that all of your focus is on when you’re going to be able to do your chosen activity again.
The last time that I ran anything longer than 3/4 of a mile was May.
Currently it is Mid-July.
For a distance runner, that kind of time off running might as well be six months or a year.
But I refuse to let this make me cranky.
Because I believe in the highly cliche phrase of, Everything Happens For A Reason, I know that there’s a reason why I’m sidelined right now.
It’s time to learn from it and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
And hopefully next time we chat, I’ll actually have seen the therapist and there’ll be a game plan in place.
