I'm thankful for friends and the encouraging words I've gotten in the last 24 hours. I feel like folks get it - it's not really about the injury. It's trying to make sure I stay with my healthy habits since the one thing I've been able to stick with is off the table.
Since I'll be experimenting with alternatives to running, I'll share them here. It's really a good thing... if zombies strike, I'll be able to swim, bike, and elliptical away from them in addition to running. :-)
Also, when I'm cleared, I'm going to be really careful about getting back into it. I hope you all won't have to do that in your running lives, but we'll all know how to reintroduce running into our routines. Guess that makes me the guinea pig!
So, runners, if you couldn't run, (or walk, for that matter) what would you do? Anything I have to try during my hiatus? I want to try yoga (great suggestion, Jodi! I'm in!) and maybe some pool aerobics at the Y. Why? Because I can. And switching up a routine is a good thing - even when it's forced.
Many thanks, all!
