So I promised you guys I would talk about the concert. I wrote the whole post and then misplaced my tablet. Pretty sure I know where it is and rather then re-write the whole thing I’ll write about something else today and post the concert report tomorrow.
How about some more whining? That’s always fun, right?
I think I have to face reality. Today I was in almost UNBEARABLE pain all morning. Pretty sure I have Piriformis Syndrome. I was planning on running during lunch, but the amount of pain I was in – forget it.
But I did walk. And as I was walking I realized that I am coming to the grim admission that I might have to take an extended break from running. That thought terrifies me.
The rest of the walk meant some self-talk. About when to take a break and what else I can do to maintain my fitness and sanity. The Run for Recovery is September 6th. I will run that if it kills me. But after that?
I came back to the office and made an appointment with the local orthopedic group. I didn’t know this but Marc recently told me that they have a sports medicine specialist! That appointment is September 23rd so it is a little while out, but having the appointment at least gives me something to look forward to in a way.
I’ve just been running and hoping this problem goes away magically – enough denial.
Now if I could only get the courage to put my fat ass on the scale and face that reality!!!
