I would really like to be writing a positive upbeat blog, but itís still not happening for me. Maybe tomorrow!
I seem to be on a massive downward spiral the past 2+ weeks. My injury has turned into an excuse each evening to tune into the ďI donít careĒ channel. I canít runÖwhich is totally bringing me down, and walking is uncomfortable, so Iím afraid that uncomfortable will turn into pain, will turn into slowing my healing, will turn into months instead of weeks to be able to run again.
Iíve been considering selling my bib to the Portland Marathon. That isnít helping my attitude either. I know it would probably be the smart thing to do, and there are plenty of buyers on Craigís List. But, I want this year to be the year I tell Kate to take off and ďrun your own raceĒ, like she did me last year. I donít know what to doÖ.if I sell it, guaranteed Iíll be fine to walk it come race day, if I hold out, guaranteed Iíll be in no condition to do anything more than stand on the side lines come race day.
SoÖmy question to you all, when you are in a funk, what do you do to pull yourselves out of it. When you are hurting, how do you turn it around so you donít turn it into a food fest of the worst sort?
