So this week I’m not entirely sure what to write about. At least it started off good, with my awesome bike ride. I wrote about it last week. However on Monday I was involved in a collision. I won’t go into details but even today, almost a week later, I HURT. I have had a constant headache ever since that day. Anyway, I messaged my trainer right away and thankfully he adjusted our workout the next day. We didn’t work as hard as usual, which sucked. I know my body needs to heal and all that Jazz, but I want to work out dammit. I suppose that’s the good news about this new me…before I would have used this collision as a reason to just stop all the work I’ve done. But I don’t want to go back to square one.  I’ve worked way too hard to do that. So I didn’t do a damn thing besides my workout on Tuesday.

I had physio on Friday. My first appointment. That was the first chance they had to get me in between our schedules. I asked her what she thought about me doing my triathlon in 2 weeks. She said she’s not sure at this point if the triathlon will be possible. It hurts to move my head and she’s worried that I will cause more damage by twisting my neck to take a breath. Ugh ugh ugh.  So then I asked her about continuing with my personal trainer and her words were “no exercise is out as long as it doesn’t cause pain” so to me that means I can do my triathlon as long as it doesn’t cause pain lol

I did manage to go for a 15 minute bike ride on Friday night. I wanted to see how it would feel. It felt ok. Now granted, 15 minutes isn’t anywhere close to my triathlon distance, but if I didn’t cause extra pain, maybe that’s a good sign.

Also this afternoon after work I managed a 2K walk with my ball python, Luna. She needed the vitamin D, lol.

Anyway my week has been full of depression, and anger and anxiousness and I’m worried I’m not going to heal fast to get back on track.

I wish I could say I have a a great update for weight but I went back up to 272. But I know that once I’m 100% back I’ll get back down again. It just means I have my work cut out for me to stay 100% on plan with my food.

Well sadly that’s all I have to share this week. I’m going to see if I can swim this week and see how I feel.
