Bad day/not a bad life

I don’t know what I necessarily do or don’t believe in, but I could use some positive prayers/thoughts/vibes/juju. I haven’t ran since March and it’s really affecting me.. Particularly beyond any physical discomfort I feel. I’m not this sad person.. This just isn’t me. This injury is getting inside my head and taking over. šŸ˜¦

  1. As someone who has dealt with their fair share of injuries I can tell you that if you use this opportunity right and are patient this will be a springboard to greater long term health and many PBs in the future. I can imagine it doesn’t seem like that now but stay positive, sketch out a plan and get a good physio and work on what you can do without pain! it can definitely be done, one of our top local runners (london, England) came back from stress fractures and is now on fire and winning races. Keep your chin up!

  2. I suffered a major injury earlier this year (torn calf) and was out of commission for 8 weeks. I know how you feel. It took a month before I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I resumed running 6 weeks ago, and am three weeks into a Marathon Training Program.
    You will get through this and come out stronger on the other side. Your fitness prior to the injury will make your recovery easier.
    Stay strong. The Running Community is here to support you.

  3. This is 100% me since I hurt my knee in February. The best thing I’ve done has been focusing on fitness in other ways, which for me has meant strength training more, but that itch to run and that feeling of sadness from not being able to is definitely still there. It’s quieter, but it is still there. You’ll get back to it!

    1. Gosh, you don’t know what it means to hear someone understand. My doctor is a non runner and her lack of compassion greatly contributed to my minor breakdown the day of this post. I’m trying to remain optimistic and will continue searching for new ways to incorporate fitness. Phew, today that was planting a white flower bed in 70 plus degree heat lol.
