Patience Pays Off!

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Overcoming an injury or illness is NOT easy! Old school says "no pain, no gain". Old school is dangerously wrong! It's been a long time coming, but as long as my ankle and my lungs can behave, I'm back into running! It's been a very long time. I tried the old school system and that became a major set-back. I switched to learning the new style, rest and recovery. The biggest obstacle there is learning patience! So, if you are hurt or ill, I know how easy it is to become discouraged or to be tempted with trying to do too much too soon. Be patient! The right time will come - as long as you don't push too hard and set yourself back further. Hang in there, we can do it!

    You are so right about not going the "old school" route. Rest and recovery and listening to your body are the way to go. Glad you are getting back into running. Have a happy/healthy day. emoticon
