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…

Forward Is A Pace

Forward is a pace. No, really, forward is a pace. I sometimes have to remind myself of that little phrase. Yes, there was a time that I pulled paces in the 8's and 9's were easy. Lately, 12 minute miles are sometimes a struggle.

I felt like I was flying, glanced at my garmin, and I was hovering around an 11 minute mile.

At first I felt myself starting to get discouraged, but I immediately stopped that negativity. Regardless of the pace or the distance, I was moving forward.

And the important thing was that I was MOVING.

With Hubby's work schedule, and Lil Man
crying lately when I work out early am, it would actually just be easier not to move. But my reality is ... I need to move.... for my mental health and my physical health.

That being said, for me movement is good... even if it does feel like a snail's pace. It's still my pace, and I'm still doing what I feel is best for me (and ultimately for my family).

Carving out time out of my day to move is key to my health.

How are you moving?

I'm very proud of myself that I'm pushing forward, and leaving behind the negativity.
