I'm Broken

I've been completely sidetracked/stressed lately and it's because I'm in the process of switching jobs/companies...and it's insane.  And of course, with this stress comes my stupid injuries.  Not only have my feet been acting up again but my hip is popping and causing me grief. Boo.  I'm just falling apart. Again.  Sometimes I think that my body is just not meant for long distances like a marathon. :(

But anyway, enough of the rants.  I'm just trying to take my running easy and slowing my pace down a little because it helps ease the pain.  I'm still running!  (for now) Thankful for that.

So how was everyone's weekend?  I can't wait to hear about everyone's races...Princess Half!!  :)

  3. Sorry to hear this! It's all cyclical I think. We runners have peaks and valleys. Hope things calm down for you soon!

  7. Oh no. This bites. HAppend to me last summer. A lot of stress and a knee injury putting me off running for a bit. No outlet for stress relief :(

  10. Imagine that - life getting in the way of fun. Who came up with this whole work for money concept anyways? I'd love to get my hands on him! (Please note -I gave the credit to a man - we're the only ones stupid enough to come up with an idea like that...)

    Ugh. Sounds like your body needs a little rest too. Be careful with all the popping and stuff. Last thing you want is a date with hip bursitis. Keep it easy and sane.

  12. I hope you get "repaired" soon!
    Good luck with the job and with your hip.
    I did a 5-miler on Saturday and was a little ambitious on Sunday, and tried to do a make-up 3-miler. My knee acted up again. So, I am going to lay off the knee today and do an easy 3-miler tomorrow.

  14. Stress does that doesn't it? Shows up in strange ways. Hang in there and take it easy if you need to. Sometimes a little rest can go a long way!

  19. Unless you are an ultra runner, sometimes our bodies need to rest, and by hurting, it sends us the signal to "hey, ease off". I hope that your injuries heal soon and that you are back to square one. Hang in there Zoe. It will get better.

  22. Here's hoping that the change from "broken" to "whole" happens quickly...I am still sore from the weekend half mary...it's doubly hard when you have stressful life changes going on (job change) and can't find your happy place ( a nice long run)...hang in there! Sending you good vibes!!

  25. having a job change can be a real pain for everyone, just relax and divert urself into running, it really helps to ease the pain and also a real stress reliever, so hang on tight!
