Running Again

Or so I hope.

I tweaked my 17 month long injury (hip flexor) when I started to try and get back into my running a few weeks ago,  I am hoping that, after two weeks off (well, not entirely off, but def.  more cross training than running focused), I can come back now…and for good.

The injury happened a few weeks prior to this run...I stubbornly trained with immense pain for months.

I’m hoping to sneak in three runs this week.  Probably around 5K, definitely not fast.  I will consider it a victory if I can make it through those runs without pain during or after.  I’m hopefully but I am definitely not expecting much….these runs will probably feel horrible and the entire time I will be worrying and wondering about whether or not I will re-tweak my injury.

I realize being fast is not everything.  And truth be told, I will be ecstatic if I can just run pain free again…but I worked so hard to get that speed and now it feels it is sooo far away.  Almost impossible.  But I am def. going to try.  I want to get back…and I want to run my sub 1:50 half.  I want to run another marathon and do so feeling strong (and ideally fast for me).

Screw it…man, I just want to F@%^#&@#&^ing run.

But, I guess, I really can’t worry about all that now.  Just need to focus on getting better….and well, on that note, I am going for a run!

Wish me luck!
