Finding your Happy Place + I’m No Quitter

While I definitely wouldn’t call it a comeback, I did have a very solid weekend. My back by and large behaved (as in, a 1 or a 2 on a 10 scale of pain), I returned to my happy place, I met a new friend, and I felt for the first time in a long time like, well, #likeaSuz. Running is still a long way off, but as I’ve discussed, I’m ok with that. A little bit more about what I got into this weekend. Thank you, Katie!

Friday was, overall, a rather boring day. I wish I could be more wahoo! about it, but that’s just how it is. Sometimes, you just have those days that bore you to death, lol. I did make the silly mistake of doing clamshells on my floor Thursday night, and so when I decided to try the spin bike on Friday morning (remember, I switched to a regular upright bike to keep my back more erect rather than flexed over), I noticed that I was having some nerve interference.  When I told George (my chiro) that I thought that was the reason for it, he asked why I had been doing them and I said: boredom + runner = clamshells. #alwaysarunnerRunning won't solve all your problems, but then again, neither will housework! Ilovetorun.org ebibs

I have to interject and say that one of the reasons that I love my chiropractic therapist is that not only did he email me Friday morning to check in on me, we ended our conversation by sending each other memes. SO PROFESSIONAL, we are. But I know how badly he wants me to get better, and humor is just how we both work through what has been a mutually frustrating problem.

But thankfully, with a little bit of chilling out and doing my exercises, the nerve pain went away, though the spinal pain was still lingering. Alex and I had planned on going out, but the weather was getting worse, and after being bored all day, I didn’t feel all like going out, so I made us dinner at home.

Being Coach Susie at Fleet Feet Sports and Chicago Endurance Sports is my happy place! What is yours?

Saturday, I returned to my happy place: being Coach Susie at Chicago Endurance Sports. I loved seeing so many of my athletes return and was very proud of them for braving the weather! For probably the first time ever, I was happy that I WASN’T able to run aka had an excuse not to: it was raining/snowing/hovering just above freezing.  Let me remind you that my “it’s nice outside and I feel comfortable enough to not wear a light jacket” temperature is right around 80 deg F. SO NO.

We got our new gear, I picked out some new shoes (always interesting when you can’t run in them), and just generally tried to get back into my zone. It was a dreary day, but being there made me just feel so good. And I wasn’t said that I wasn’t one of the freezing wet runners returning!

three things in life .jpeg

Saturday night, Alex and I got our date night out that we had put off from the night before. We headed to our local favorite D4 for French onion soup, shrimp salad, sliders (crab cake, root beer sloppy joe, and pulled pork), and roasted cauliflower, accompanied by an Off Color Brewing Troublesome and a Royal Apple Mule (Crown Royal Apple, lime, Goose Island ginger beer, and cinnamon). Then back home to watch Unbroken.

 If you remember, I read Unbroken at the very beginning of summer while we were on vacation (seriously, I tore through it because it was so good), and I have to say that, while I thought there was nothing glaringly wrong with the movie, it was missing the inherent and prolific pathos of the book. I know, I know, you can’t get everything from a book into a movie (look at the Harry Potter movies), but you should still have the characters developed enough that you understand why those scenes are included. If you hadn’t read the book, I don’t know if you would understand half of the significance of what was chosen to be shown in the movie.

But that is just my opinion…. Humble opinion ;D

Sunday dawned nice and bright, and I had the pleasure of meeting up with my Instagram acquaintaince Pip (Cherries and Chisme) for coffee/tea up in Old Town. We chatted as if we had known each other, and the hour passed so quickly! But Alex (and brunch) called, so I walked with her back towards Gold Coast and then we parted ways. She is on an epic US tour, heading to Kansas City next and then to Colorado. She is going to love it!

Then this happened.

The veggie omelet at Tempo Cafe in Chicago's Gold Coast is entirely massive and delicious and ive yet to not finish it! What do you order at brunch?

Remember that whole “I can’t switch off my appetite” plaint that I said last week? Yup, you would think I was still marathon training! In fact, this is the very dish I included in my long run nutrition post! That would be about 9 egg whites. At least. I don’t think I could describe to you how massive it was and have you believe me. But you better believe that I dominated it. And then felt like the Michellin Man after, but you know me, I’m no quitter.Stubbornness meme

The rest of Sunday was dedicated to cleaning (which I paid someone else to do, lol), groceries, drinking bourbon, and cooking dinner (mustard salmon), then just hanging out.

Want to know the best party about Sunday, though? I lived it out as if my back didn’t hurt. I woke up that morning and if felt pretty good, it got a little angry during my long walk, but then I rested and by the time we went grocery shopping, I felt alright again. I felt more like ME again, too. I don’t know what this week will bring, but I am happy to have had the weekend and week that I did—I needed to feel #likeaSuz again. Again, running and full recovery is still a bit of a ways off, but we’ll get there.

Are we there yet?

Congrats to all who raced this weekend! Shout out to reader Maddy who crushed her goal! You already know that I’m jealous 😀 but very happy for you.

From omelets to finding that happy place, @Suzlyfe is no quitter. #sweatpink #fitfluential Click To Tweet

    This past weekend was a nice boring one. I was supposed to meet a client for a run Saturday but we preemptively canceled thinking we would wake up to a blizzard.

    I did not see snow and last night I had a boring frozen meal after traveling all week/weekend. I need to get back to optimum race weight, I’m not too far off this morning, definitely not as bad as I thought.

    My doctors and I have had an interesting history. I was undiagnosed for most of my life (24/28), and started having symptoms within the first year of my life. I’ve had doctors call me crazy, one mis-diagnose me for years (asthma, prescribing prednisone for years, then wondering why my stomach pain comes back randomly when we stop, then saying I just want attention, hence the fevers and stomach pain are all just a show). I bounced around a million terrible, and some okay doctors. I found my rheumatologist at Lahey who found the problem (after a year of testing), and started a drug therapy that honest to god works. I have major trust issues with doctors, but he is on my good side (although without telling him my marathon goals, he encouraged me to try other races instead of my goal race, saying I shouldn’t go for something like that, whoops!). Otherwise I avoid doctors like the plague, which will probably bite me in the butt one day, we’ll see.

    Glad to see you back in form and coaching! It sounds like a promising start down the road to your new normal. I’m sure you’ll crush it (and many more omelets).

    November 23, 2015 at 8:58 am
    • Reply suzlyfe

      You know I love me my omelets 😀

      I have been incredibly fortunate with my doctors. Neither I nor my mom ever allowed a doctor to call me crazy or think that I was making things up. And a large part of that is due to the fact that her mother died because her own doctors told her that the pain she was feeling was all in her head (to be fair, this was also in the 70s). Well, no, actually, it was the cancer coming back, and the time they found it, it was everywhere.

      I was so lucky to have a pediatrician who read the signs and sent me to the right people. It wasn’t a short road, but I’ve made sure that I have gotten the care that I need.

    Did you finish that omelet? Major props if you did – girl with an appetite! So glad your back felt a little better this weekend. You have such a good outlook 🙂

      You better believe that I did. I have a bottomless pit of a stomach. It gets me into major trouble!

    Yay for feeling better!!!! I know that feeling – last week my lower back/butt pain stopped and I was like “Oh so this is what it’s like to walk around pain-free”. I think I re-aggrivated it snowshoeing this weekend so it sounds like we have similar issues with “resting” too 🙂

      I’m not even sure what I will do when it DOES get better–like how long do I wait? UGH

    I’m glad you’re feeling a little better! Baby steps, right?
    No snow here yet, but it’s starting to get a little colder. I’d be a.ok if it didn’t snow all year haha! #wishfulthinking

      Seriously. But then again, I would rather have it than freezing rain. Pretty much can’t win either way

    I’m so happy you’re feeling better! Good news! To answer your question, we got about 7 inches of white stuff, on top of the two inches of ice that we got in the middle of the storm. I had to drive to a tennis match that should have taken me 30 minutes but took 75 because the roads were treacherous. Let’s just say I was very happy to get home on Saturday night.

      I’m glad that you got home safe and sound! That is too much ice and snow. JUST TOO MUCH

    I have had good and bad relationships with therapists. Not necessarily bad, but just haven’t meshed with some. I’ve finally found a massage therapist and chiro that are amazing and really care about finding a cause vs treating symptoms. So glad that you are having better days and yay for being able to coach!!

      It really is about finding the right balance of personality and knowledge–the relationship is so important!
