In my post surgery haze, I bought some fresh kicks. Nike Pegasus shield, because they are awesome in the cold. No, really. They are awesome. And green and rose gold makes my heart flutter.
I also registered for a hilly half marathon. Perfect Boston training run.
After a great start to training in week 1, everything came to a screeching halt. On the Friday of week 2, I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. This was planned, and also a reason for doing a 20 week cycle- that I would have plenty of time to recover and train my ass off before race day.
Post wisdom teeth, I took a few days off for recovery before I got stir crazy and started walking on the treadmill. I was super lucky to not have much if any swelling, and very minimal pain. Walking on the treadmill made me feel better than slothing around on the couch- once I felt good enough to do so. I was very conservative with returning to running because recovery was number 1. And because I was terrified of dry socket.
Goals and Stuff
My only goal for weeks 2 & 3 was to recover from wisdom teeth surgery.
Sums up getting 4 teeth ripped out of my head. Written in the recovery room while still high AF from sedation
Having to eat only mushy food for a week helped with resetting my mindset towards food- I wasn't as active so I didn't feel the need to consume large quantities of food- which made me feel much much better. I also lost a few lbs, so that was cool too and made me feel marginally better. Body fat is still not budging.
I'm excited to get back into training and start doing speedwork again! Yay!
102 Days to go!
