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…

Just What I needed



4:30am was early (again) this morning. And it was cold. But this 6 mile run today was exactly what I needed. It was a nice comfortable pace. My legs were a little sore from the long run on Sunday in addition to the crosstraining yesterday, but overall if felt pretty good. My breathing was better. And I was able to pick it up for the last mile.

My stomach hated me, but it often does. But other than needing to make a pit stop, I could have kept going once the run was over. I haven't felt this good about a run since I got sick. So it was nice to have a run that left me feeling more confident than nervous.

I'm thinking Thursday's run will be 8, and Sunday's run will be 17.

But we'll see how things are feeling after Thursday's run.

  1. Wow, that really is an early run. And here's me thinking I'm an early bird because I do the school run, running around 8 in the morning.

    1. Yes, most of my runs are very early. I usually have to get them in before my husband goes to work. So I get home about the time my husband and son are up and eating breakfast.
