I'm Feeling Frustrated!

Friday, December 07, 2012

I'm begining to wonder if maybe I'm not supposed to be a runner. Sigh.

I hurt myself....again. I wasn't even doing anything crazy. I pulled something in the back of my knee while I was on my Nordic track. That's just back and forth motion, and I do it for that reason on my off running days.

Now I'm limping around and I feel OLD. I'm trying not to feel depressed and cranky and defeated. I'm just going to work around it for a few days. There are other things I can do. I won't let this get me down and stop my progress.

But it's really hard....

    That is a bummer. I wonder if you need to strength train. Hope you feel better soon.

    I used to injury myself when I didn't train right. You need to work up to it. I am better now with no problems. Hope you get to 100% soon!

    I hate to hear that you're injured. Take care of yourself as it heals! Working around it and keeping your eyes on the goal of health will keep you out of that depressed, cranky mood. Like Rocky didn't give up.
    Maybe this will be an opportunity to try some new routine you've been considering? Yoga? Sparkvideos? Swimming?
    May you heal quickly!
    (And you are NOT old!)
