yikes- it didn't work like I thought it would

Thursday, September 23, 2010

I am back on the treadmill- have been able to ride my bike again- relief!
Then I had to go and get sassy- I tried running, just a little, just to see if I could do it. My heart sank. The pain that shot through my leg was unbelievable. I am having a very difficult time accepting that I may not be able to run again. I just did my 1st, and possibly only running, 5k last Thanksgiving. I will walk it this year.
I have made my grateful list, thought of others that have physical problems much worse than mine. I tell myself every day that there are many things that I can do and I should be grateful.
I have not given up but I am allowing myself to be upset for the moment.
I will continue to take it a day at a time, a step at a time.

I love ya SP- thanks for being here for me!

    I use lists, too. You can't help but start smiling and feeling better when you stop and think about each and everything on that list!! Throughout the day on Thanksgiving we all said everything that popped into our heads that we were thankful for. It was a fun game, but you know it also kept the emotional energy very positive all day.
    Thanks for being so open and honest in your blogs. I can relate to so much of what you're saying and have been through...and Kudos on your 'growing a spine' blog! THAT is inspiring the heck out of me!!

    It's possible that it is just too soon. Allow yourself to heal and rebuild strength. And hey, even if you're not the fasted puppy in the pack, doesn't mean you can't be in the pack. Google "Team Hoyt" and read about them. makes you think you could run to the moon if your heart desired!
    Take care of yourself.
