But I have taken time off running, I've seen two physical therapists, a chiropractor, spent $200 on a knee brace that didn't help, spent $200 in co-pays, I've had my gait analyzed, I've done my stretches and exercises at home... nothing is working, and I have NO CLEAR ANSWERS!!! Just a lot of "little" things that are wrong with me that wouldn't necessarily cause my knee to hurt for 7 months straight. (If you see a physical therapist, I guarantee they will find at least 3 things wrong with you. My first PT found three and my second one found three different ones.)
I don't mind spending the time and money to fix whatever is going on, but it's just frustrating when it's not getting fixed.
Oh, and I have this weird tissue that rubs over a bone in my knee. I can FEEL and rubbing and sometimes I can hear it popping. I bet that could cause inflammation, right!?
I. WANT. ANSWERS. I don't want a call from a secretary.
So tomorrow, at my appointment, I will either get a good answer, a bad answer, or no answer at all.
Due to my not running situation, I feel as though I haven't talked about running a whole lot on my blog! And while running is not my only passion nor is it the only focus of my blog, I still enjoy writing about it. However, I haven't had the drive or motivation to write about it lately since I'm not actually running. I feel a little like a fraud too... I feel like I can't write about it if I can't do it. Silly I know.
So I had some ideas for new titles for my blog! The following ideas are more accurate depictions of my life lately, since running is just a dream in my head right now and not a reality!!!
What do you like best for my new blog title? I'm not really going to change it, but what title do you think would garner more readership? I'm leaning toward the carrot cake one...
And since this post started with a song in it's title, let's end with a song! Do you ever make up songs and sing them to your fur babies? I do. All the time.
Chrissy had a great night last night because he found a straw to play with!
So of course, I had to sing him a song...
Sing to the tune of "I Love Paris" by Cole Porter.
I love Kissy in the springtime, I love Kissy in the fall.
I love Kissy in the summer when it sizzles,
I love Kissy in the winter, when it drizzles.
I love Kissy every moment, every moment of they year.
I love Kissy, oh why oh why do I love Kissy?
Because I love dat boy!
(Kissy is my nickname for my cat, Christmas.) I know my song doesn't rhyme at the end but that's okay!
How did you come up with the title for your blog?
If you had to change your blog title, what would you change it to?
Do you make up songs for your fur babies?
Did you ever have to take time off from running? How did you stay sane without eating too much carrot cake?
