No Running Yet...

The verdict came... and I was not to happy but understand.  There was some hope that since my pain and discomfort has been almost completely gone here, I had a flare up yesterday working outside on the yard.  Today there has been some pain also.  It is funny though because just before I headed out for my bike with the running clinic last night, the pain went away, so I attempted to bike up one hill with the runners...  no problems!  So I biked up 2 more times with them and then back to the store.  I drove my bike there instead of riding it there because I did not want to take chances with the earlier pain.


So anyways, my acupuncture person (also a physiotherapist) said that running is going to have to wait a bit more yet here. :(  He is hoping next week will be ok to try running a bit.  I just have to remember that sometimes things healing can get worse before they get better...  I was careful in what I have been doing and making sure that I was not over doing it and the biking they said I could do only if there is no pain doing it - I had zero last night!  Oh well, I have the rest of my life to run and make up for it. :)  I guess they call this stage the 'runner's blues'...  I am trying hard though to find a replacement activity like my biking to stay active, but it just does not feel the same.  And now that the summer hours are happening for the pools... the times SUCK!!!  I really don't feel like getting up super early to go swimming.  I liked it better when they offered the mid-day times for lane swimming. :(

Well, the temp here is quite high and thank god for the air conditioning!  My son is at my mom's tonight for a sleepover and my hubby is away till tomorrow night, so I have the place to myself with my zoo.  I am going to have to find a movie here to sit and watch and would love to go on the stationary bike right now while watching it, but I was told to take it easy tonight. :(  I just have a hard time staying still sometimes! lol

I hope everyone has a great weekend here and has some lovely weather to take advantage of!

I know what you mean. I tore my PCL and I am awaiting surgery and in the meantime there isn't a lot I am allowed to do activity wise. Then, I have a recoup time of about 6 weeks IF I'm a good girl. Its a good thing I game otherwise I would go insane. Good luck staying sane during your forced down time...you'll be back up and running in no time. :)

I get that it's disappointing, but it's not forever. Better to take your time and make sure things heal. Hang in there! I'm sure the end is in sight.

sorry about the verdict, but take the time to heal fully and properly, so you'll be less susceptible to chronic injury. i know it sucks, but like you said, it's not forever. take it easy
