Almost Heavan

Wheeling, West Virginia

I'm on the road, again. This weekend is the Marine Corps Marathon. Next weekend is New York and the following weekend is the new Outer Banks marathon. Rather than flying back to Chicago I'm going be base out of my son's family home in Vienna, Virginia. This will ALSO give me a few weekdays with the grandkids!

The knee is, for all practical purposes, fine. At least physically it's fine. I haven't been able to get myself to run/walk more than 3 miles for the past week or so because I'm still worried that the pain will start. Recovering from being injured, whether it's from running or not, is more difficult emotionally than physically in my experience.

And, since I missed the chance to run the Chicago marathon this year, I'm feeling a little grumpy as well.

ORN: 3 miles, 40 minutes, R5/W1

You make an excellent and common statement about not being able to get yourself to run more, being worried about the pain starting up.

I've always wished there was a collection of 'mental dialog' points people have in their aresenal to get past the sticking points everyone encounters at every level. You never know which magical key opens the gates.

Keep on creepin' on.
