Sulking and celebrating

I've been sulking for 2 days now. Every time I see a runner on the road, I've had to try like heck not to cry. It's funny how time changes your perspective. 6 months ago, I would have rejoiced at not being able to tun for 4 months. I literally said I hate running every time I went for a run. Now, I just wish I could run without pain.

I've decided I am done sulking though, and have decided to look for other ways to continue to keep up my cardio during this time, so I can complete my 2 half marathons in April without draining myself. So starting on Sunday, a swim/bike/elliptical program starts for me. I'm going to listen to my Dr. and not run with my foot, for at least the month of December and then re-evaluate my injury then. I'm a pretty good healer so I doubt it will take the full 4 months to get my foot better. I just hope I don't lose my love for running or motivation during this time.

Today is my 39th birthday. Despite the number of candles on my cake, I do not feel this old! I have a few things on my list race/endurance related I want to accomplish before I am 40, they include:

2 half marathons in a month
Half Ironman
1 full marathon

despite my injury, I will accomplish these goals. Have a great day everyone!

Oh, I'm so sorry you're injured. That is the worst! Yes- get in the cross training you can, and you'll be able to maintain a good level of fitness. Good luck!
