Patience is a virtue...

That I was not born with, given or have learnt to have!!!!!

My back/legs are driving me to distraction!!!

Yesterday my left leg decided that it would join the pain party and although my right leg and back were pain free my left leg had me in tears at least twice over the weekend and just ached all day yesterday. When I was sitting down I could not lift it to cross my feet I had no strength in it at all.

I was woken 5 times by the strong winds last night and every time I woke I would stretch out my legs and both would cramp... so much for magnesium loading sigh!

I tried walking slow, walking fast, walking on an incline, cross-trainer, spin cycle and finally gave up on cardio yesterday as no matter what I did it hurt....

I am off to buy a Zimmer Frame today... Actually there is always one left somewhere in the way at the club so I will just steal that one today LOL

I am trying to be patient, I am trying to give my body a chance to adjust, heal, grow, blah blah blah blah... it is very trying all this trying...

I had almost decided that I would not compete again because of the stress it places on my back and body but then I saw a mention of a competition and my mind started organising how I could get ready in time... then this morning both legs are aching and I can hardly walk... double sigh!!!

Well its time to go to work and search for an abandoned zimmer frame.. I think I could get Hubby to bling it.... yeah I just know he would bling it... LOL

Deep breath... patience... P.A.T.I.... oh hell I don't have the patience to type it like THAT!!!!

I totally hear ya' on the waiting for the body to heal-it's by far the longest wait of all! My pec/shoulder thing has taken 8 months-but is finally on the mend! It sucks-but by not FULLY waiting-that's why it took so long...so keep up the wait-your body will thank you for it eventually!
