I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Vitamin D and Venus fly trapsLiza
I think I might have just damaged my child with this video about venus fly traps.
Well, he wanted to know. I’ve never felt so badly for a fly before. Poor Asa (who hasn’t shown a soft spot for flies up until this point) kept saying, “But Mom, we want things to live.” I rambled on about how venus fly traps needed to eat flies because their soil lacked nutrients and how Asa himself ate fish for dinner last night — because he needed nutrients. The connection was lost on him. So far no nightmares during his nap this afternoon.
So I have a stress fracture of the shaft and head of my third metatarsal. Supercool. I have an appointment tomorrow with a sports medicine podiatrist to find out exactly what that means as far as running goes. Seems like it’s at least a five-week healing process though. 81 days until Leadville – 5 weeks = 46 days…. I’ll keep you updated. It looks like low Vitamin D levels were a contributing factor. I swear, I’m learning more A & P than I wanted to these past few days. Researching Vitamin D and trying to get the information to stick in my head has kept me busy this morning. I’m going to have to write it all down I think. Look for that enthralling post tomorrow — and some cool aqua jogging photos.
