First, you have to go see this clip from yesterday’s Love Run yesterday. Two men helped a woman who was struggling to get her to the finish!
I might have had just about every emotion this weekend but as I write this I’m ok. I’ve got a doctor appointment with my primary care tomorrow and a specialist foot dr appt scheduled for Wednesday so I’ll know what this bizarre toe injury is soon enough.
I’ve had many running injuries over the past 10 years. And I’ve had other ailments that kept me from running including laproscopic surgery. But this freak toe thing really caught me off guard. I’ve now developed a small nodule that’s bluish in color on the underside of my toe that is exactly where the pain is. It’s like a pea under the skin. And i’m guessing it’s pressing on a nerve.
Anyhoo Duncan and Mr. SOTSS did what they could to keep my spirits up this weekend.
But today I’m back in that positive space now and the pity party has ended. Mr. SOTSS knew I had to go through my process to get to this point and was pretty patient I must say. He’s not an emotional guy and doesn’t get as wrapped up in things as I do. So it’s hard for him to understand why I torment myself with such emotional responses to running injuries, change of plans, physical pain etc etc. His logical response to most is if you aren’t up to it don’t run it. You’ll see your friends again another day and it’s only money.
In the meantime I’m being lazy. Really lazy. I’m not even trying to figure out a cross-training alternative. I’m sure my “process” will get me there eventually but for now I’m just chilling out.
How was your weekend? Anyone run a race? How did it go?
Are you a logical type or emotional type? or both?
