If You Can't Say Anything Nice...
I was bitter, I was injured and I had nothing good to say. In fact a friend had commented after reading one of my posts that it sounded like someone had shot my dog...
So I backed off a bit figuring it was time to chill... nobody wants to read about a bitter runner on a sympathy train.
For about five weeks I was stuck in this Groundhog Day-like injury cycle. I would rest up and run 3 successful miles and then the next run I wouldn't be able to finish without turning back in disappointment.
At long last I've been able to finish moderate distance runs on rolling hills without incident. My weekly mileage has climbed steadily and this week I've increased my mileage significantly.
I'm not out running the trails just yet, but I can say (with confidence) that I'm back and look forward to running and writing more.
