Running away from running

Monday, March 11, 2013

I hate to run.. This is no new revolation to me. However, if I plan on finishing the Pittsburgh Marathon, I'd better kick my non-running butt into gear. What's holding me back??? Simple answer---my knees. After 20 years of teaching higher impact aerobics (10+ on a concrete floor covered by linoleium), my knees feel as though they are 90. They swell and I have decreased range of motion. I personally can see and feel this....but do I stop torturing my knees? NOOOOO.....I love teaching too much (still doing plyometrics and higher impact at 44). I will successfully finish the marathon (thank goodness for Jeff Galloway and his training principles), then I will run away from running emoticon
