Chin up girl - you got this

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Short note - just sick as can be that injuries seem to be plaguing this race prep. I am scheduled to run a half on April 28, but every time I have tried to run the last few weeks, my knee has given me a hard time. I finally went to the doc, she thinks perhaps meniscus tear. The regular X-rays are normal and the MRI is scheduled for Wed. I was doing so well with my training and really seeing some excellent speed results, then bam -

ok so -I am not going to get too down, I will do what I can do and no less. I know this is not a big deal unless I let it be. The important thing to remember (and I write this blog so that I can remind myself) is that 2 years ago I never ran a mile straight and was 40 lbs heavier. 2 yrs later, I can even worry about going faster, making a PR, and I get frustrated when I can "only" run 4 miles...or "only" run 15 miles in a week or less. Well - dang girl, you are doing it. you can run, you can keep off weight, and you can be healthier and stronger. If there is an injury it is a set back, nothing more...so chin up girl. You got this

    Good for you for keeping such a positive attitude, even in light of the untimely injuries that you're experiencing. That's very inspirational, and don't lose sight of how far you've came! Everything happens for a reason! :)
