I Told You So…Don’t Tell Me That Please….
Perhaps, i am a moron. Perhaps, i should have listened. Perhaps. I knew something was wrong when i couldn’t get Seth to work this morning. Darn bezel was locked. So, i ran for the first time without a timer or pacer or anything. That was my first inkling right there. Then i felt the pain.
But, i didn’t listen to my body and now my streak is over. So is running. For a while. Seems i have an injured shin on my right foot. I researched the internet and came up with either shin splints or a stress fracture. Either way, it sucks.
I feel like a very stupid person who should have known better. I told Ted that i thought i was super woman. I thought i was invincible and would never get hurt. Nope, not me.
I was told i have an addictive personality. So, i am addicted to running. Nothing wrong with that, i thought. Guess i thought wrong huh? Now, it even hurts to walk on it. But, walk i must.
I cannot simply become a hermit who sits home and stares out of the window longingly as the world moves forward. I don’t even have any cross training to fall back on. Because i put all my efforts into my running.
So, streak is over. Over and out. Done! I will never attempt another streak either.
I want to heal fast. Then i can concentrate on training the right way. With recovery days. Lots of them too! Perhaps, another type of exercise too!! This cannot happen again. It shouldn’t have happened this time.
I want to run a marathon next year for goodness sakes. Believe me, i know now that i was doing it all wrong. ALL WRONG. Now all i have is my Runner’s World magazine to confirm how very stupid i am! Oh and all the running forums that would have told me to take a day off. Don’t run a streak. Oh and some of you here. Lisa, i should have listened to you! Thanks for the good advice. I will take it next time, i promise!!
Dave, man keep it going if you can! Only without pain and exhaustion. Do it if you feel totally fine every single run. If not, dude its OK! You are a great person no matter what you decide to do!
So, i will keep updating here. This is my blog, my peeps are here, my homies!!! I will use this time to learn and read and do other things. I just hope i do not gain weight. Chocolate is my love. Well besides all of you and running, then i love chocolate!!!
All my balloons are popping!!! Thats a good thing folks!!!!
