You know, it is hard to write a walking blog. I know it’s probably harder reading a walking blog.
I haven’t tracked a run for 2 weeks now. Hopefully things are healing and I’ll be back soon. My post last week about going to the doctor was not written well. I made an appointment for this coming Thursday, not last Thursday. Sorry for the confusion.
I did walk yesterday. It was a 6 mile walk on a beautiful morning. Not much to report about it. It was good to get out.
You all have a good week and thanks for keeping up with me.
I will continue to follow and encourage you no matter how you exercise! You are what makes this blog, not your running. Even though, yes, you are an amazing runner, you are amazing! Your faith, your family, the dog and your commitment to health are what matters. Stay strong. Be blessed.
wow, thank you!!! Yes, I do have to remind myself that there is more to my blog than running. I may have to branch out more over the next several weeks!!!
My 2 cents: injuries happen. Rest will heal. Stress will unheal. You completed a marathon recently. You’re blessed in many other ways. Press on. The Race is a long journey.
That is very true. Just like your book, there is a long race before us! It get’s hard sometimes when you start looking at yourself and injuries, etc! Thanks for the 2 cents!
You’re doing the right thing and I hate you have to go through this. I’m heading out the door for my 2nd appointment with my new doctor, who I believe has centered around the real issue I’m having and will have me back to running sooner than I thought. Take care of yourself, and I’ll keep reading, even if you want to talk about ballet 🙂 Keep the faith, never feel bad about taking time out to heal.
Thanks! That means a lot. I’m glad that you will be back sooner than you expected. Ballet? That is a thought. 🙂
I do hope things get better for you soon!
Thanks. I’m sure they will, just maybe not in my desired time frame!
When you can’t run, every day seems like an eternity!! I wasn’t able to run for 7 days and I was going crazy. Hang in there!
I know. It amazes me how dependent I got on running. Taking this time off has made me really appreciate it. Thank you!!!
I’ll enjoy your walking posts. When you start running again, everyone will know the work you put into it.
Thanks. I’m glad you enjoy them. Walking sure takes more mental discipline at times than running did. Going out for a 90 minute walk isn’t very fun.
Time heals all wounds. Just be patient. You’ll be stronger than ever when you make your comeback
Man, I hope so. Thanks!!!
Well done: you had the patience to do a 6 mile walk! Not sure I could do that!
Thanks. It isn’t the most exhilarating thing to do on a Sunday morning. 🙂
I can’t wait to get back to some form of walking. Before I became a runner, I used to walk six miles at a time, and I did it in about an hour. It was nice to walk with friends, but my walking buddy moved away, and we only have running peeps in my neighborhood . It’s a little cold right now, and it’s going to get colder. Maybe this Sunday. Enjoy your walks!
Thank you. I hope you can get back to walking. I’m not sure which is harder, running or walking. I guess each has its pros and cons.
Tom, I (we?) read because of the runner you are, not just because of the runs you do. Ergo, you don’t need to be always running to be a runner – so keep on telling us how things are going and how your walking is going. It’s just part of the path towards your goal. It might be a path you didn’t expect, but it’s still a path on your journey.
We’re all here rooting for you to get back to running, but I think I can safely say that not one of us wants to see you running before you’re ready for it and able to stay injury free.
Oh, and thanks so much for the shout-out the other day. It was very humbling to have one of my comments turned into a blog post of yours and I’m very thankful to you for it.
All the best for good news on Thursday!
Thank you so much Bernie. It is hard to take a blog about running and talk about my walks. Seems sort of boring to me. But with such support from you and others on this blog, I’ll keep writing. And you’re welcome a about the shout-out. You have such great comments, I am glad to highlight them. I’ll write about my appt as soon as I hear. Thanks again!!!
You have to take care of yourself first and foremost, so don’t stress about a walking blog!
Thank you. I’ll do my best. I started this blog about running and I guess my current situation is a part of that. Injury happens to us all.
The important thing in all this is there is no giving up, you WILL make a comeback, meanwhile I understand the challenge of an injury and will continue to be here with you every step of the way! 🙂
Thank you!!! I know you will be. That is a HUGE help!!!
