This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
The other night I ran 3 miles, which is the most I’ve done on my aching knee since the marathon ended. It wasn’t comfortable by any means, not to mention my legs felt like they were being held down by huge weights. It felt like I literally did not know how to run anymore. I was so incredibly exhausted after 3 miles.
I know I’m still recovering, it’s just hard to be in this state right now. I want to run and feel great! I miss that feeling…now it just hurts.
So, I’m off to the gym now and I’m gonna try again. And I probably won’t be able to run any more than 3 miles, but I’m hoping it will be a little more enjoyable this time.
I just need to get myself moving and doing something. I feel like the most lazy person ever.
