On the Sidelines

Sooo.. it's obvious that it's been a while since I've blogged. While there is much to be praising myself for, I started to feel that blogging was like blowing my own horn, and even after only 4 posts, I started wondering who would want to even read about me! Okay, so I follow about 10 blogs and guess what, I'm interested in reading about their experiences, so it only seems logical that someone would want to read about mine too. Okay - that's out and over with.

The HM I ran in March was the BEST! My official time was 2:15 and I placed 13th in my age group. I only just received the certificate in the mail! (Hubby so proudly wants to frame it.) Running the half was one of my life's dreams and I was beyond proud to have finished. Of course the next dream, the full Marathon is in my sights.

In the meanwhile, I have been sidelined with a stress fracture in my ankle area and have been off running for the past 4 weeks. I am finally at the stage of my recovery where I can walk - yes, read walk, on the treadmill and if that goes well, I can increase the tempo and time from the 1 km (!) that I have been doing. My PT thinks that I may be back out there within a few more weeks.

Most of you can easily understand what it's like when you have to be sidelined. Running is who I am - and without it, I tend to walk around in a bit of a stupor, constantly apologizing for my bad attitude and gruff remarks. "I can't decide this now while I'm not running!" Seems this is my reply for anything that requires more than a few seconds thought.

So I'll just continue to cruise all the running blogs I can find and live and run vicariously through all my favorite bloggers.
