So… we’re though October and half way through November which in all honesty already feels like it’s over since Thanksgiving is next week, and I’ve yet to run more than a mile. Still.
Perhaps it’s because we’re adding another pup to the pack next April, and that’s slowed me down again. We found out I was pregnant in August right after I broke my ankle and after that healed I wasn’t feeling great. Back to morning sickness and constantly gagging which didn’t help my running game. Finally the ankle was feeling almost 100% again and I was getting back into the swing of things butttt when I tried to run it just felt… awkward. To be honest, it’s pretty hard to not run again and to know that I won’t be running for a while. I went through a lot of the same feelings I went through when I was pregnant with C and felt angry, disappointed and upset. Now I’m trying to focus on the positive and I feel like even though I still have some downer days, I have gone more into the acceptance phase of grieving the loss of running once again.
Hopefully, I can run again in less than a year, so I’m looking forward to that day and trying to allow myself to enjoy the break. I also know that it will help make sure that my ankle is fully healed before I run again.
