Well it is just a few hours away from my last dose of 2 Aleve and then off to bed. I will try to sleep but I am already seeing visions of what my morning run attempt may look like:
The birds are chirping and the sun is out. The family is sleeping and I slip out looking fit and trim as if I never took anytime off. I walk a bit and then begin my slow jog. I feel so good I pick up the speed and take off. I make it 3 or 4 miles PAIN FREE! Ahhhh the dream lives!
I wake up with my stomach in knots as I get dressed in a shirt that feels too snug. Hmmmm maybe all that stress eating and not moving my body for a week? It is gray outside but hit the tunes and start walking. I begin to jog and the PAIN is there but I can push through. I push through for a 1/2 mile and it is too much. I walk/hobble and cry as I go back home. BOO!!! Feeling defeated I will text my running buddy and cry.
I get out there (feeling fat) but OK because I know I can do this. If not today, tomorrow or a week or 2 weeks if it has to be. I can't run but I am able to hold it together and be positive as I enter back in to the house to give the report to the fam.
Sooooo I am of course am voting for vision 1!! This is really going to test my mental toughness. I want to be smart and get through my first run! IF I am able to do that I will be working towards more things I can do to prevent injuries and reoccurance of whatever this is?? I.T. or not....I want to RUN! No matter what, I do know that God is in control....so as hard as that can be at times, I will try to find peace in that.
