Is it OK to start a blog with a string of expletives? %$#@# #@%# *&%##$%!# $#!$#!@#%^&&*%$#@%^^@$%2. There now I feel better, not really. I was so excited about running again but tonight I had a setback. I decided to hit the gym again since it is really cold and rainy here today. I got on the treadmill ready to do an easy 6. I set the speed at 9 minutes/mile and off I went. By the second mile I noticed a slight ache in my leg. By the third mile I could feel myself beginning to limp. DAMN! I immediately quit running and got off the treadmill. I stretched the thigh like the doctor told me too and tried running very slowly around the indoor track. I was able to jog slowly without pain but was still frustrated. I have my leg on ice and it's elevated as I type. I hate it. I can't do this, I am beside myself with frustration. I want to run so badly. I don't feel like myself anymore. What am I going to do? HELP.
After my stupid run I went over to the workout pads and beat myself up with Pilates. My legs spent so much time in the air they may qualify for some type of FAA license! It felt good to do that. I may do some more before I go to bed.
All of you (Southbay Girl) who wondered why I was running again when I had committed to not running for 2 weeks were not crazy. OK You were right, what was I thinking. Maybe once you get to know me you will not be surprised in the future when I do stupid things. How does that country song go... "I know what I was feeling, but what was I thinking???" Yea, that works right now.
More ice, then massage, then bed. Maybe I can dream of running.
Thanks for listening
