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…

My half-marathon is only 8 weeks away. I'm nervous, but hopefully the rest of my training will go ok. And I'll do fine. Time will tell.

I'm trying hard to lose the weight that I've put on over the last 2 years. So far I've lost two pounds and have four more to go. Hopefully I'll keep the two pounds off. I seem to keep gaining and losing the same weight over and over. I'm bumping up my cardio. I rejoined the gym this week. Yesterday I went to the 5:45am spin class. So now I can cross train on my days off from running.

I'm trying not to think about the half being so close. I feel like I have such a LONG way to go to be ready. But I'm registered now.. so I have to go through with it. Deep down I want to. It's a fear that I might not finish, but a thrill to push myself and see what I can do.
