winter doldrums

I'm creeping up on nearly a week without a run. My overconfidence in my body's ability to heal itself from injury or illness always leads to massive frustration. I couldn't really walk on Thursday or Friday, I was super gimpy. I rested a lot both those days, and pretty well yesterday and today. There is still a little pain sometimes, but I can walk now without pain. I am going to take a little walk tomorrow morning, and then if there are no repercussions (please, please, please!) I will go on a run tomorrow afternoon. I just don't want to hurt my foot worse and have to wait longer to get back out there.
This stupid week has made me realize how glad I am that I took up running. It's really good for my mental health. My stress level has been much higher this week than it was the weeks before. It's nice to get outside for a little bit a few times a week, and the endorphins don't hurt either. I'm pissed off that I've had to stay inside and rest. I'm not a very patient person. I'm also pissed off that when I get back out there, I don't think I'll be quite as good as I was. It'll probably take a week or so to get back to where I was, and then I can progress more. So frustrating!
We're progressing on our wedding plans. We ordered invitations last night, which was really exciting. I can't wait for them to get here! We also decided to incorporate lovebirds into our decorations, which I am excited about. Now I have all of these new decoration ideas swarming around in my brain, it's hard to make any decisions. I really do want the whole wedding thing, and as stressful as it is, I'm enjoying the planning part (kind of), but Vegas is awfully appealing as the wedding gets closer and closer. I think that, in the end, everything will come together and it's going to be amazing. It'll be over before we know it. Yikes!
