The Injured Runner Award
I was thinking last night, boy I know several runners who are down and out at the moment. Some can’t run at all (like me) and some can run, but it is painful.
The roughest part of running is not running. When you get injured, your daily routine gets disturbed. Your daily endorphin fix is no longer available. Your stress had no outlet.
It is tough.
For me, I am putting up my running shoes. I made an appointment with a orthopedic sports medicine doctor and will see what he thinks. I know time will probably fix my problems, but better safe than sorry.
So, although this isn’t a real award or nomination, I thought I’d list a few of the recent blogs entries of people who are dealing with injuries or recovering from injuries. Take a moment and go to their blogs and write a comment. It is something we all have to deal with. Also, if you know of other injured runners, feel free to post a link to their blog in the comments.
Life is tough without running and encouragement from other runners is like a life line.
Here is my list:
Thanks again for the help and advice with my injuries. I will probably take the next 4 weeks off which is tough as I’ve already taken about 5 weeks off (not consecutive) since my marathon. I’ve been thinking of changing my blog name to WalkingToBoston. Maybe not!
Have an awesome weekend.
