Hey all! I am swamped with work and treatment plans for fieldwork so I’ll make this a short post. Actually, I really need your help. I seem to have lost my running mojo and need some help finding it!
Ever since my IT Band injury, which has resulted in months of PT and frustration, I haven’t felt like myself. After the Lake Placid Half on June 10 I took a few weeks off from running to try and let the band heal completely. So I started running again a week or so ago since my break but have only put in a few miles so far. I just don’t have the drive right now to get out there and run like I used to. I mean, I still love running but it seems that other things are getting in the way mentally and physically. Here are some of the main reasons/excuses I think I am creating in my head:
-Its hard to run outside because my asthma kicks in badly, plus I hate the heat
-I am mentally afraid of increasing mileage for fear of IT Band pain returning so I’m avoiding it subconsciously
-I don’t have enough time with fieldwork (horrible excuse)
Now, I think I may just have to force myself to do it for my mojo to come back on its own, but I wanted to see if anyone else has been through this and has any suggestions. I am going to be training soon and want to be in the right frame of mind when I start! HELP!! I want to be this girl again..
I need to find my strong, thanks Saucony…
PS. From my last post, looks like table 2 is the clear winner. So many people are into rustic (including me). I’ll let you know when we actually buy a coffee table, but now I’m leaning towards wood!
