And I don’t mean THIS guy…
After reading Nelly’s blog yesterday I feel a little bit better about my ITB stuff and having to take off running for a while. I know it happens to the best of us and it’s comforting to know that other people have the same crazy thoughts and feelings going through their heads that I do when going through injury/rehab stuff. Us runners are a crazy breed by nature and are very hard on ourselves, so I think we take a major hit when we can’t run. When running is your therapy, your love, your favorite part of your daily life… when you can’t sleep at night because you are excited to get up and go for a 12 mile run the next day, then yes… you really really really miss it! And its way worse then taper time!!
But patience, patience, patience. This will be my goal for the next month… yoga, stretching, foam rolling and praying. Then – it’s back in the camel’s saddle and time to ride. And it will make the next long run, the next season of training and the next marathon all that much sweeter. Now if i can only stay sane in the meantime 😉
