My name is Collette and I have an addiction!
Besides my addiction to chocolate, which I try to curb with my yearly lent diets (no junk-food diets), I recently am undergoing another addiction withdrawal. RUNNING!!!
After careful consideration and consultation with my three PT's (dad-in-law, Andrea, and Shane) and one Orthopedic surgeon (Travis (Andrea's hubby))...we came to the conclusion that this week MUST be a rest week of no running. I can still maintain the same level of intensity, but just in a different, non-impact way. But no running. Ugh!
During my phone consultations with said "experts", Travis informed me that indeed we can develop a dependency on running....(not that I'm surprised! I truly am a better mom after a nice long run) He said I was going to have a hard time NOT running.
Yes he is right! Today even though I did a bit of spinning and elliptical workouts I still find myself in withdrawal!
What makes it worse is that today my ankle is feeling pretty good and makes me think..."OK, now how about that 5mi run"...to which I am resigned to say "no-sorry even though the ankle feels a bit better, it needs more time!"
I even had dreams about running last night!
This is like confessions of a drug addict!
