commit

I, liz with chaos, do solemnly swear to not go running for a week. That means until next Tuesday.

My foot, or should I say feet, hurt. Bad. The usual PF with the left. And some bizarro spontaneous bruise/internal bleeding in my right. I think because I was seriously overcompensating for the weak left foot. So, that's it. No running for (at least!) a week. I will spin (seated, of course), stretch, and massage injured areas. I will rest. I can think of a million reasons why I should run. And one big one why I shouldn't: life-long running health. This won't be an easy trip. I'm downright scared of what this week will bring. But I commit. To not running. For a week.

I was pain free this morning. Felt good. Real good. To walk. Instead of hobble.

Ah, the true athlete: having to PREVENT yourself from running. I'm am definitely still at the stage of having to prevent myself from NOT running.

Take care of yourself, Liz! Sounds like a good plan. Pain bad, pain-free good!

Not a easy decision...not an easy commitment to keep..but one that will be worthwhile! Good for you for listening to you body!!

Absolutely resist running and be cautious getting back into it. Besides, this will give you an excuse to do more yoga!
