thick skin and thin thighs

Ask me anything   Chemistry major, way too girly rugby player, trying to get rid of these big ass thighs!
This makes me sad. 1 year until I can run again.

Why I’m fatter than 4 weeks ago

Things have been mm…rough.

About 4 weeks ago, the morning after a 14 (!!) mile run that made me feel absolutely invincible, I went in for a sports therapy appointment and was told I need surgery. Two surgeries. One on each ankle.

I can’t play rugby, run (!!), go down stairs, hike, nothing. Well, swim but there’s no way I’m putting a swimsuit on…

I’ve thought about going for a run. Especially on a perfect fall day like today…but then my ankles start creaking and cracking and swelling up and I hear my surgeon’s voice in my head talking about further damage and the chances of using a cane for the rest of my life and I come back to my no-running reality.

First surgeries in December, second one’s over spring break. I’ll be walking sans crutches and boot by June. Running? Oh, you know, December. So over a year from now. I can’t even wrap my head around that.The next time I run might be 2015…

Until then, I sit here, getting fat. I really hate this feeling.
