I hate this! The whole reason I've been slow and steady with increasing running endurance is to avoid injury. I don't even know how I got this one, but it's keeping me from running! However, I CANNOT let it STOP me. I need the patience to rest until my back heals, and then I want to start running again! Let's hope it doesn't take more than a week. I get paid next Friday and need to find a good massage therapist (or physical therapist?) in the area.
The exercise guilt is bad right now. Click here to see how one of my peers sees it (scroll past the obsessive food pictures). It makes sense it my head, but it's still frustrating. Prayers would help! And patience, if I'm grumpy. And muscle relaxants, if you have any ;-)
