One of my yoga teachers used to say this, and you may have heard this saying as well. It was so applicable to my run this morning. Coming back after this injury, or rather, trying to run somewhat through this injury, is really cause for me to re-evaluate my goals. No, I haven’t trashed my idea of running Baystate, but today, it was more about just getting out there than how far or how fast I was running.
I wore my new Adidas Boston shoes and they were fabulous support. I set my intention for a 30 minute run, massaged some Ben Gay into my calf before leaving and went out. Initially, it felt 80% better, then it felt pretty much the same, then as I got moving and my body got warmer, it was about 60% overall. Not too shabby.
I will continue with my home based therapy program ( I’m even icing my leg at work!) and will take tomorrow off. Wednesday, I’ll try another 30 minutes.
I think this just might work.
