“Don’t stop now;; Look how far you’ve come.” September 2011 vs. March 2012
The hardest part for me in this recovery process [getting back into running after a broken foot] is realizing that I’m less fit than I was six weeks ago. I have to be rational and tell myself that when I stop running seven miles a day for six weeks straight, of course my body is going to get a little less firm. I haven’t been burning the calories my body used to and my muscles probably shrank a little bit. But it IS reversable. Instead of being hard on myself, I need to simply ease back into my old routine, stay positive and motivated to get back to where I left off, and then some. I still have an ultimate goal to get to that I can and I will achieve.
