Oh running, I barely knew ye. Today's blog comes to you live from my living room couch where I sit, a bag of frozen corn on my right foot. I have just returned from the gym and my heart is broken. I am still "resting" my injury and the delay in my training is starting to make me antsy...and frankly, a little crabby.
All through my workout (low-impact cardio on the elliptical), I could see a fellow gym-goer jogging on a treadmill out of the corner of my eye. At one point, I even shook my head sadly as I watched her up her speed and start to run. (Sigh) It's only been a week and already I feel a void.
As I walked in the door, my husband greeted me with his usual, "How was your workout?" I could only stick out my bottom lip and scowl. His suggestion was that I simply stop working out for a week...not exactly what I wanted to hear. So, I knew the only answer was to turn to my laptop in hope of advice from you.
Perhaps it was fate that today's Runner's World Quote of the Day is: A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. -Winston Churchill
Help me find the optimist again!
