I have been training with walking for a long time. I have had a situation with my knee that I finally figured out! In 1993, I had anaccident that has caused me to have had 3 knee surgeries in a 4 year timeframe. I have screws in my knee and have been very limited to what I could do. OR so I thought. In all these years, I have avoided stairs, bikes and running. It was always too hard. It hurt. I couldnt do it!
Now here I am, older, need a knee replacement and fighting obesity. But today, I had a revelation. Its not that I couldnt do it, I didnt want to do. And that wasnt because of pain but FEAR. I thought about all the times I stopped myself and decided to go for it today! I pushed myself and jogged for 1/2 mile. This coming from someone who feared to run a few steps to keep up with my kids.
I think I have got passed my fears over this last week. At the hotel, I exercised on a recumbent bike and walked the stairs instead of the elevator when I could. With jogging as far, I have overcome the three fears I have had since 1993.
Now to get over chlosterphobia! Lol. Thats another story!
