Did I Fail to Mention Something?

Have I failed to mention that I really miss running lately? 
 If I haven't told you lately then listen up...
 You have no idea how much miss running....
I have been spending lots of time learning to like 
 my new best friend the elliptical.
I am not very fond of my new friend, but he's
all I can count on right now.
He never lets me down.

What do I miss about running?
I miss following my training schedule.
I miss the challenge that running brings upon me.
I miss the natural high that I feel after a great run.
I miss waking up at 6:00am for a long run.
I miss being able to release stress through a great run.
I miss not being able to meet my running goals.
I miss the feeling I get in the pit of my stomach before a marathon.
I miss being able to eat whatever the hell I want and not gain a pound.

Tomorrow is probably going to be my last day of PT.
I will have to continue this healing process on my own.
I know that it is going to require a lot of patience.
I may have to sit out another race or two.

I know that I have to be patient and allow myself to heal,


  1. ah I feel so badly for you..
    have you tried more running since your last 3 miler...have you had pain since?
    it WILL get will.
    hang in there.

  2. Oh man! I'm sure this really sucks! You'll be tearing it up soon once your done healing...hang in there!

  3. you and me both! just remember it will get better... at least that's what i keep telling myself ;-)

  4. It really will get better!

  5. We're in the same boat. I could have written this post myself, with the recumbent bike instead of the elliptical in the photo. Let's do some visualization--you and me, carbo-loading in Boston, the night before we make it. Maybe we should wear T-shirts to that dinner showing our respective machines with Xes through them. Persevere, my friend!
