OK, that may be a little dramatic, but I don't think he is going to like what I have to say. I ran today!!!!!
Not long but still, I ran!
First let me tell you that last, I woke up in the middle of the night and moved funny and guess what, I pulled a muscle in my shoulder. I know what you are thinking, "Seriously, what else could go wrong?!" I am thinking the same thing. Now this pissed me off, big time.
I am ONLY 40 years old. I have two small kids who need me to be 100%. I cannot be hurt. So I did the only thing that would make me feel better and that is to run. Now it wasn't far but it felt so good. I walked a little than ran for .50 miles, then walked, then another .50 miles, walked and then ran .25 miles. 1.25 miles, a total of just over two miles in 30 minutes. I think I could of done more, but I didn't want to push it. I feel really good right now and hope I don't pay for it later.
Here is the thing, I am mad and I am not going to give into this pain anymore. I am bigger and stronger than this and it will not keep me down. I have one thing to say to you back pain, (cover your ears if you don't like bad words) GFY! That's right, GFY back pain! I am going to run, walk, bike and learn to swim and be the best I can be and you are not going to stop me.
Honestly, I know DH is going to think I will make things worse, so I will do what the docs say, but I will not sit still. I am ready to get better and I plan to be better sooner than later.
I have big race plans in my further and I will not miss out on them. I will finish 13.1 in October and then from there the world. Ha Ha, just kidding. Or, am I...
Hope you are having a great day.
Run strong, think big!
