The Waiting Game


It’s now been nearly 4 weeks since I was able to run regularly. I took the last two weeks completely off after an attempt to return that was accompanied by pain. The adductor is truly a terrible injury to get over. It’s slow to heal and you use it for roughly everything. So it’s really difficult to rest. I’ve been going to the gym and working out what I felt comfortable working out (and I can definitely feel the added strength) and I took a long weekend to visit family where I did a lot of nothing. I’m hoping it’s healed up enough that I’ll be able to take it out for a short 4 mile stroll this evening. I really hope so. I’m dying to run. Like.. I walk out of work and see the Double Peak trail and I want nothing more than to be running drenched in sweat in the heat of the day running on that trail. When I’m not running I can’t eat like I’m used to and I feel lazy.

About thedillyruns

In 2007 I decided to join a running group to train for a marathon. I'd never run more than 4 miles at a stretch and never raced. I grew up playing basketball. After a promising first half marathon, I grew hungry to run faster.
