Merrily I limp along


It is killing me to not be able to run.

Today, I went “speed-walking” with a friend. It was really fun and I was glad to have that time to actually talk to her instead of just panting alongside her.

But still.

Every day, I am not running I am losing endurance.

And it drives me CRAZY!!!!!

The only thing that is keeping me from running is the fact that I will get sporadic pains throughout the day.

My knee.

Ugh. It hurts SO bad. It’s like I can feel the little nerves passing the message along upa nd down my leg.


Of course, today was just kind of a bad day. I was so tired. And I have lots of school. So if the pain from my knee jolted some tears today… well it was a mixture of things. But it does hurt.

I want this hi-tech knee brace to work. I want to get back to my running regime!!

I have another 5k race this week.

I’m gonna have to walk it.

That’s gonna kill me too.

I mean, 5K’s are the easy stuff. I love them cause I always have the chance to get a new PR and they are short and normal. I know I can do it cause I do it every Tuesday morning.

But this Saturday, I am gonna be one of the walkers. One of those people who come in last instead of 12th… 😦

Ugh. Heal stupid knee.

I wanna run again.
