What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

The Weather is Turning Colder

It’s been difficult to run lately. The weather has changed here. It is much cooler, and it is making it difficult for me to ‘get out there’. I purchased a cheap exercise bike in the attempt to try to stay in shape since I couldn’t run as often. I have to say though that I hate the bike.

I was able to get out and run this Thursday and Friday. I was disappointed in my first run this week. I ran a little over three miles, but my pace as terribly slow. The run on Friday was faster, but it left me too sore that I didn’t run today. I am hoping to run tomorrow even though it is supposed to be colder.

The true Runners keep telling me that it will get easier, but I can’t say that I see that happening yet. I can see that I am stronger (some days) than I have been in the past. And then (some days) I feel as if I have never run before.

I think my biggest obstacle is myself. If I get tired – I quit. And this frustrates me about myself. But, in my own defense, I have to say that I haven’t given up. I may stop and walk some steps, but I continue to get out there and I continue to run.
