Back at it today

Monday, July 08, 2013

Lulu and I went for the long run this morning. It was not easy. I struggled right from the start. That probably lead to more walking breaks than I would have had otherwise.

But we didn't give up. We got it done. 4.5miles in total. My knee was twinging a little, but I am wondering if it's not a mental thing. I spent the run focusing on how my knee was rotating/moving. It would only twinge for a fraction of a second, then quit. I think it may be from increasing my mileage so fast. Luckily the next couple of days are easier ones - and lower miles. But I'll keep an eye on it.

    You did it!
Pushed through it, but made sure not to aggravate your injury by being mindful.
Continued SUCCESS!

    Aside from it being Monday for everyone else, and your schedule is different, struggling on Day Off has always been a reality for me. You pushed through it, and that is often the hardest part. There are a lot of things I haven't done since My Guy died, and I know "pushing through" a specific task is usually how I can get through it.

You WILL win this battle, but only if you want it enough. And I know you do. :-D
