So I'm almost back to normal...key word..almost. The arch of my right foot is still swollen and bothersome. OK working on my feet 12 hours a day doesn't help either...but hopefully I should be good to go by this weekend. I can now happily run up and down the stairs without looking like a donkey trying to run hurdles and poop at the same time. Its pretty magnificent..............however.....I got suckered. The day after the marathon I decided to be ambitious and go up to the gym and do some bike and elliptical to work out some of the soreness from the *ahem* untrained marathon. I was watching all the personal trainers sit on their asses..and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask them some advice on my current situation. Judging by the limp I had going on..and the fact that I'm definitely not "gangsta" despite what some of you may think, it was pretty obvious that I was in some pain and in need of some help.
The guys were somewhat friendly...but I could tell they were elluding to the fact that maybe I hadn't prepared well enough for the marathon...who?????? me??????? who are they kidding? haha. One thing lead to the next..and I had an appointment to just "go over things". It got cancelled once due to open heart surgery I was in the middle of..but somehow the guy suckered me into picking out another day to come. Well unfortunately that day was today..and maybe I felt weak or something..or since I was still a little sore and off balance..I felt really stupid and in need of help. Each move he would have me do I felt like a 500 lbs whale trying to balance on a popsicle stick.I kept tumbling over...he tried to be nice and mention the words "shifting", "unstable". Now seriously folks...I was a little sore and stiff and probably could have done these moves better under different circumstances..but I honestly felt like an obese cow rolling around huffing and puffing. So there I am...signing my name next to a 12 month contract. I'll let ya all know how it goes....but once again...I'm a sucker :)
