Unfortunately physical therapy did not go as planned yesterday. I didn’t even get to TRY and run. Sigh. I guess when I was there last Thursday both of the therapists were a little concerned about how I was walking. They talked about it and decided that I would only walk on the treadmill today, mainly so that they could watch me and check out my gait. I guess when I walk my feet roll in causing my knees to roll towards each other (even my mom said that she noticed it yesterday when we were out shopping). Because of this they want to work on some lateral strengthening before I start back up with the running. So not only did I not attempt to run today, but I also ended up really sore after therapy.
I know this is all for the best but it was just not what I wanted to hear yesterday. I drove home frustrated and sore. When I got home all I wanted to do was eat my dinner and then lay on the couch and read. But I’m co-hosting a shower on Saturday and I had a laundry list of things that had to get done last night. Baking and crafting had to be done before I could even think about sitting on the couch.
So that’s where we are now. Working on lateral strengthening before I can even think about running. I’m trying to think about all the positive things about this, but it is hard with my next half marathon less than 2 months away.
I just want to run.
