S.A.D.Posted: January 10, 2011
It is official, I am suffering from SAD. I think it is a combination of not being able to run/exercise the way I want to, that I only see Nick on the weekend and one other issue I can’t speak of (most annoying though!). I am more frustrated than anything. I haven’t run in what seems to be forever, but it seems that every time I try to go up a level in physical activity I get a twinge in my knee, hip or foot. It is extremely disheartening. Even today I was back in the pool for the first time in about 2 weeks and all of a sudden I heard a crunch in my knee. What??! Isn’t swimming supposed to be the one thing that won’t hurt me? I seriously feel like I should go live in a bubble for a month. I really wanted to run a Saint Patrick’s Day run for my first race back, but not I feel like even that is pushing it. I honestly do not know if I will ever run again. I have a yoga class on the plan for tomorrow and we shall see how my knee feels. I have got to try and stay positive! This too shall pass, and at least I have my favorite fur ball to keep me company.
Sorry I am such a Debbie Downer – I am planning a serious cleaning and organizing project if I need to become dormant again. Any other suggestions for keeping me occupied?
p.s. Major props to Lindsay for doing so well with her marathon training!
