Got my hair did

7 Apr

I took a day of rest from Whiddle My Middle and went to see my hair stylist instead at Michael Christopher Salon. The salon was actually on that show Split Ends a while back. How funny and random.

Anyway, my hair was looking unhealthy, gray, and way too long…

So Lauri, my stylist, lightened me up and cut off a few inches. And I got some sideswept bangs.

I’m in need of some opinions. I made an appointment with a knee doctor yesterday, but the receptionist told me I shouldn’t go there because they specialize in arthritis. Well, I know other people who went there without arthritis. Now he’s probably going to tell me to stop running, ice it, take anti-inflammatories, etc. Things I already know. Should I go (and spend money) when I already know what he’s going to say? I know you’re probably thinking I should go. Maybe I’m just scared of what he’ll say.

I’m so anxious to start signing up for 5ks for the summer, and I’m super anxious to start Hal Higdon’s Spring Training program so I can prepare myself for a full marathon, hopefully the Walt Disney World Marathon in January.

The April Challenge

I’ve done 2 days of Whiddle My Middle so far, and I can really feel the work I did the day after. Makes me feel hardcore. Haha!

Project Glow is going wonderfully. My monster pimple is almost gone, and they usually take forever to go away. This just took 4 days.

I’m making a little attempt to track my calories, and I found this adorable notebook to do so.

Tonight’s plan is to go to the gym for a stationary bike ride and come home to catch up on Young and the Restless and finish my taxes. Eek!

    I like your hair! The blond warms up your complexion a lot, good for summer! I don’t know what you’re talking about “short,” its still out of the frame!
    I’ve heard good reports from people who see a sports medicine doctor instead of another specialist. If your pcp can’t recommend one, try calling local gyms and see if they have favorites.
    Good luck!

    Love the hair!! I’m a big fan of side-swept bangs.

    Your hair looks great!

    I agree with above that a sports medicine doctor might be the way to go — or at least a doctor that works routinely with athletes. I had a fairly severe ankle sprain in December and was initially told that it would be unlikely I would be able to run a half in March. I was given the rest, ice, ibuprofen deal. After a week or so of misery I went to a foot/ankle doctor that works with a lot of athletes and he just totally got that sitting around wasn’t going to cut it for me. I was “allowed” to go straight to the gym after meeting with him and while I couldn’t run for 6-7 weeks, I was given not only rehab exercises for my ankle, but ideas of cardio and suggestions to keep my endurance up (LOTS of pool work…) so that I could transition back to running. Needless to say, I not only ran the half but I ran a PR. I know your injury is not the same, but all that to say I definitely suggest someone that can understand that you are a runner and “stopping running” is not a long term option! I can totally relate to your frustration since I have been there way too recently. 😛 Good luck!!

    Do you have a sports doctor or a sports orthopedic surgeon you can go see? They will probablly order an MRI at the least.

    Maybe try resting it for at least a week, maybe 2 – do nothing that causes it pain for pain afterwords. After 2 weeks try a small run and see how it goes. If ok increase.

    I agree a sports medicine guy might be better than a regular doc. Hair looks good !

    You should definetely go to the doctor. It’s better to be safe than sorry…especially when it comes to your knee. If you don’t get it under control it could really affect your mobility down the road.

    I LOVE your hair. It looks so warm and beautiful!! Love the bangs.

    The hair looks fantastic! Your stylist did a lovely job! I perused the last few days of your blog (I’ve totally been slacking on the internet) to read more about Whiddle My Middle… totally going to jump on that band wagon. My core is my problem area (as I’m sure, for too many women out there).

    Perhaps you should try seeing a different knee doctor (that doesn’t specialize in arthritis)? It’s definitely something you shouldn’t neglect having someone check out considering you’re a runner. As someone else said, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
