Hi All, this Blog post is going to be a bit down, but that is how i am feeling right now. my body seems to be betraying me. the more I do to try and make it healthy, the more my knees hurt, my ankle hurts, ( foot surgery in 2009 the part i thought the surgery was for is fine, the other portion where he did a bone graft hurts like all heck when I run sometimes.) I was supposed to run with a group of ladies on this past saturday morning. Well, we I woke up the temperature was 28 degrees outside. I decided I would go run at the gym. I did my session of couch to 10 K and then did 15 minutes on the elliptical, and 15 minutes on the upright bike. I felt bad because they were outside and I know that I just could not brave that kind of cole. I know I have to give myself credit for the treadmill run and time on the other items, but I feel less than because I was not out there. My mind says I should be able to do these thing, but my body is rebelling. I am only 40 years old and I feel like i am sooo ancient. Sorry for the rant but this is how I feel.

    I say you went to the gym. Be proud. It sucks that you werent able to be with your friends. Think of it this way I have never had a friend that has wanted to exercise with me it could be worse. Hope your knees and ankle quit hurting. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It will get better. I pray that your ankle and your foot will heal totally and completely. Remember, when all else fails encourage yourself and if you believe in the power of prayer and God - pray. God is where my help comes from, He has helped me this far and continues to be there for me.
