Still not running...

It pains me to say it... but at least I can now drive by another runner without getting a lump in my throat.
I'm coming to terms with it.

And I know that most of this is psychological... I know that exercise actually helps osteoarthritis and there's no need to run 12kms a day.. I can just do 4 or 5 but I can't bring myself to do it. I'm scared I'll hurt more even though everything rational tells me I won't.

As it is, if I'm moving I'm fine, if I'm stationary I'm also fine... it's getting from one of those states to the other that causes me pain...

I know I'll run again, but I also know that there's no chance of another marathon this year and I'm really upset about that...

  1. Maybe time to get on the pushie, get into the pool or head to step class? Then you can feel the righteousness of exercise without running?
