I just got back from my last (boo hoo wah) doctors appointment with Hot Doc spine surgeon. It has been 2.5 months since my surgery and he told me today.....
THAT I CAN RUN AGAIN!!
(in 2 weeks)
For those who read this and personally know me in my real non blogging life...you KNOW how much this means to me. It seems like all I ever talk about is running and how I wish I was able to run again. Well guess what...NOW I CAN!
When I heard this news I was so very surprised since a few months ago the same doctor told me I could never run again...weird (what a waste of tears that news was). Today, however, I did not remind him that he said that. :)
I am so so soooo very happy and I can not wait to get to the gym and start running! As everyone knows...I have gained quite a bit of weight these past few months. Total bummer. It seems like almost all of my hardcore determination and motivation went out the window the day I couldn't run any longer. I am so excited to have it back. Now I can actually see my progress on a physical level!! See that I can run longer, farther and faster. Such a high. So EXCITED to have it back.
I did promise him I would give him another 2 weeks or so before I would start running again. Technically I should wait until my 3 months post surgery date. I am going to try my hardest to stick to that promise...but no promises. Hahahaha. I'm a mess.
A HAPPY MESS! :D
