That my body is much more capable than I give it credit for.
Like running 8 miles on a treadmill of all things.
Like training for a half marathon : )
That sometimes pushing through isn’t an option. (or isn’t the smartest option.)
However I know my running journey is FAR from over.
I have my whole life to run… and hopefully will be back to it in a few weeks.
I have meniscus surgery tomorrow morning…
My surgeon thinks I will still be able to run my half marathon in september… and I am hopeful.
He gave me the option to wait until after my half… but I didn’t want to get so far hurt that it was too late to have surgery and still run the half… SO I am doing the surgery now.
And I am really glad. I ran a strong 8 miles last week (with negative splits..) and 6 miles since.
I was hoping to get in 9 miles before I had surgery but after being hardly able to walk after the 8 for a day I knew it wasn’t time to push it crazy hard the day before surgery.
So I am gonna go for a easy jog tonight and enjoy the run… before I am relegated to the couch tomorrow.
Any prayers would be appreciated.
