Back to square one :-(

Sunday, March 17, 2013

As you can see from the above picture the unthinkable has happened- INJURY! :-( Friday I was out running and hurt my foot. Was not on a trail, doing plyometrics, or on an uneven surface. On a routine run without my watch just enjoying being out there. I went to go off the curb, lost my balance and almost fell. All my weight went on my foot and I broke my fifth metatarsal. So now I am in a boot and can't run for 8 weeks. As a runner I am beyond devastated. Running is who I am, my therapy, my tool to help my son. I feel lost and helpless, not sure where to go. I am sad, angry, confused. Did I mention my husband is deployed to Kuwait? So I feel alone on top of everything. No one to hug me, to tell me it will be okay. I am hoping to use this as an opportunity to expand my fitness. But it will be challenging. But I have run marathons, dealt with autism, deployments. I hope this will make me stronger. Need to see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is so very dark right now. I am hoping as I post I will find a way to that light, to be a runner again. I am a proud member of the Run for Autism team and want to continue being so. I will make it back just might need lots of help and support.

    Sorry to hear about your injury. I know that can be devastating. I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis and have had to put some of my regular exercises on hold until it heels. Yoga was my go to workout during this time and I have come to really appreciate and enjoy it.
