Continuing on the selfish theme

While Monday is typically reserved for beer and Front Range culture, today I am continuing on my selfish streak.  Thankfully, I had an extra day off.  I hung around the house and got some laundry done.  I got the car washed because it was 60 degrees out and I hobbled around a few furniture stores looking for a new hutch and dining table.

I was supposed to write about beer and spend 2.5 hours at the gym this morning and it didn’t happen.  If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I had a rough day on the slopes yesterday.  It was crowded and a bit icy in spots but overall, my first day back to skiing was great.  That was until my last run.  It was actually our planned last run and I was half way down when I lost my footing and down I went.  Apparently I yelled pretty loud when I fell because I had strangers asking me if they needed to get ski patrol and the husband urging me to hop on a medical stretcher.

The history with my left knee is no good so when I went down, I knew what really bad pain would have felt like.  Luckily, the pain I was feeling was bearable.  I managed to get my skiis back on and coast down the run.  Once at the bottom, we got to the car, grabbed a bite, and headed home.  Beer helped with the pain.

Once I was home, I iced up and grabbed my trusty brace.  The Husband had asked me to wear it while skiing and I completely forgot…

Today, I am wrapped up and enjoying some TV, reading, and resting.  And I don’t feel bad about it.  I know that I could have been better served with an arm workout or some modified ab work but today I knew that I needed to let myself rest and enjoy the extra day off.  I needed to have some me time and rework my workout plan for the rest of the week.  I just need to remember that it is ok to slow down and start over!
