I AM SO HAPPY I CAN’T EVEN.
My knee was having these entirely random weird spasms of dull pain throughout the day (it might be the weather because it’s about to rain) so I was worried but I didn’t have any pain whatsoever while running. Well, actually that’s not true. About a mile into the run I ended up coming down more on my heel and that really hurt (duh it’s poor form!) so I had to really concentrate on form during the rest of the run. Other than that NO PAIN! :D
I’m going to avoid squats or at least go light on them the rest of the week, but next week I think I’ll be entirely back on my feet!
It’s been two years since Fitboy motivated me into running and changed my life forever. I’m so glad it happened.
I’m so glad I pulled it together and faced my fear of running outside. I’m so glad I got over myself and chose to take up a sport that is one of the greatest.
I never thought I’d be one to run but here I am! And I’ve gained so much more than weight loss and fitness from this adventure. I’ve gained an emotional security not many can claim to have. I have an outlet for all my feelings, and a pillar that is always there no matter what.
Even so, thinking of myself as a runner was a slow process. I kept feeling as though I was infiltrating a perfect world; that at any point someone would stop me and point a finger and call me a wannabe or fake. I thought I wasn’t running fast enough or long enough to be a runner. What I didn’t know was that running isn’t about your speed or distance. It’s not about what records you break, or how many medals you’ve collected. It’s about the determination and drive you have to get out there every day. The perseverance to push yourself further than you did yesterday. The willingness to meet your breaking point and run past it. In that, I am without a doubt a runner, and I’ve never been happier.
