This is how I feel right now:
In other news, I went back to spin yesterday and I got back in the pool after more than 2 weeks out of the water. Spin and a recently sprained ankle are maybe not the smartest idea, but it felt so good to be back on the bike. I took it easy, but I will prolly be sure to take more time off should I ever sprain my ankle again. Sadly, I am pretty sure it is doomed to happen. Swim was awesome. I made up my own workout because the class was working on dolphin kicking with flippers. Yeah, at least I am smart enough to avoid the flippers. But honestly it was so nice to do something active again!
I wrapped up my day with a couple of hours of work. We held an info session for prospective students who are interested in the MPA program. I love recruiting. I am so lucky to have this job. I really enjoy getting up in front of people, sharing my experiences, and then helping them to figure out how to best achieve their goals. Now I just need to figure out how to put all of that into a long-term career when I graduate in April. Yikes! Speaking of graduating... back to the books!
What do you do to stay sane when you are injured?
Thankful thought for the day:
I am thankful for school. Even though it causes me a lot of stress, I have become a better person over the last year. I owe so much of that to the challenges I have overcome in grad school and to all of the incredible people who have helped me make it through.
