An injury can be a learning lesson too......

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

I know it sounds weird and maybe it's just my twisted mind..but I try to find the good in everything and everyone....it's just harder sometimes than others...my last injury was a pulled or torn groin muscle....not good if your main excercise is running..and that's how I got it...rushed a stretch and over pulled the wrong muscle...that was 8-9months ago....now I'm pretty pain free...I never visited a dr. over it..I prayed many times over it...I took many over the counter pills over it..but it never would go away....so I thought what do you have a computer for..I googled it...ok I'm not the only person who this has happened to...but what do I do now...most wanted to sell you something usually around 100-150 dollars that would cure it for sure...I did my share of R.I.C.E..I didn't run for 3 months after the injury..much...anyway...what I learned through this was patience...things take time to heal....it might relaps even now...who knows...what I do know that really helped was when I felt that I gave it plenty of time to heal properly...I would run hard...then stretch....then ice....then heat...over the months I felt like that did the best for my pulled groin muscle....I don't suggest anyone pulling it just to see how it feels though...you won't like it....take it from me.... emoticon emoticon

    I stumbled upon your page through a mutual friend. I too have learned from my injury. Patience is a great lesson and I also learned that diet is a HUGE part of losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. Great blog. Kinda funny we both posted the same type of blog. (mine just today) May God continue to Bless you and Guide you through everything He brings you to. Take care and God Bless. Rick emoticon

    Actually I learned a lot after my injury in May. (I wouldn't have chose it but...)

    I learned that if I take the time to let it heal--often the body is able to repair itself.

    I learned that there are other exercises that can be done when the primary one is taken away.

    I learned that diet is also a BIG part of losing weight.

    I learned that when I positively do what I can, the rest comes along.
