Pride Swallowed

Pride is an awful thing!! It can drive you to the point of no return! I have had to swallow mine on many occasions! It can also keep a runner on the shelf. No racing, no speed work, no trophies!
I am reeling in again! Taking Anne's advice I'll flatten out and try to get completely healed. Feeling better today...got a half hour in of mostly flat.
Enjoying the Spring like weather!! Sunny skies...south breeze, sweet 60 degree temps!! The Bluebirds are giving us much joy today, too. I put up a new house for them and they are digging it! Today Mizzou plays #2 Kansas...GO TIGERS!! I love March Madness! Peace!

Stay strong and stay the course. I'm living proof a more conservative approach pays off. And, yeah, the injuries always happen when the weather improves and the outdoors beckon...

Glad you're taking care of yourself... hang in there!

Hope you recover fast. Hopefully, you can at least continue to run the flats

It's so nice to read that spring has arrived somewhere. I hope you heal quickly.

BS, my husband, took exactly one month off to get strong and heal up and he's back running now. I think Anne's advice is smart...hang in there!

this weather has certainly been a blessing! a reward for sticking out all those gray, dreary winter days perhaps? sure hope your heel starts feeling better -- this is the time for running not recovering! (c'mon heel, get with the program)

Beautiful

     Oh my! The weather is spectacular! I managed another 30 minute run. So 5 short runs this week. Just kind of maintaining! Hope you are ...
