Ugh...strained quad muscle

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Went to the doctor today and found out I have a strained quad muscle, which is causing my knee pain. I have only been able to run once a week since I finished my last marathon on October 20th. I was told to make sure I stretch, foam roll and walk briskly for a week. Then to try running and see how it feels. I was able to run, 3 miles, the last 2 days but tried today and was only able to get a mile before I had to walk another 2 miles. Walking does not bother me, neither does doing T25.

Very frustrated, since I am used to running 6 days a week; 50-70 miles a week. Going from that to hardly being able to run, makes me one unhappy girl. I feel very sorry for my husband and my children, as I know I have not been fun to live with.

Hopefully, after some rest and stretching I will be back to running in no time. I just need to be a ready to go in January, as I have another marathon in May and training begins on January 6th.

    Be kind to yourself & gentle to your body..
    It will heal & you will be back at it soon.
    We tend to push us where we would tell others to be patient..
    so ..tis me telling you ..& maybe your body telling you too..
    slow down..be kind & love yourself ..

    take care of you like you would a guest in your house!

    I understand your frustration, but sometimes we just have to let our bodies heal or they'll make us pay later. Be careful! ((((hugs))))
