5k Training: In a fight with myself.

I’ve been in a fight with myself lately, it has everything do to with a bumm shoulder, my inability to ‘not do anything’ and my desire to get/stay fit and run. It goes something like this:

” I want to run, but I can’t and my shoulder hurts so I guess I’ll just sit down and ice it”

“ok I’m sick of sitting I just want to do something”

” I know I need to rest my shoulder so it gets better but I can’t just sit down like this”

“I’m sick of watching TV”

“Seriously, I can’t do this I’m not made to be sedentary I’m going crazy”

“Crap my shoulder hurts I guess I”ll just sit down and ice it”


I’m sick of this cycle, I want to start some Physical Therapy get the ok to interpret again and start running. I’ve lost another pound by eating healthy but my goal isn’t just to lose weight its to become a stronger person, to be able to run farther, get toned and all of that and I can’t do that by only eating right and its starting to make me crazy. Not to mention I LOVE my job, I can’t wait to get back to it, but I have to keep reminding my self that if I want to continue to do this in the long run I need to take care of myself right now. Lol looky there we are back on the crazy cycle again…

  1. Thanks for stopping by my 12 Ways to Reuse Diaper Boxes post at thebeansproutnotes.blogspot.com.

    Good luck healing that shoulder – injuries can be so frustrating when they prevent you from doing what you love!

  2. I hear you. I went through the exact same thing when I was rear ended (though I was able to still work during that time). It stinks because you make so much progress fitnesswise then something happens to knock you off your game. You tend to persevere better than I do though because it ended up taking me another 14 months to crawl back onto the fitness wagon. (Though I am on day 41 and loving every minute of it). Hopefully physical therapy can put you back on track soon!

  3. Oh, I know that feeling! I think right now you should work on healing your injured shoulder first. If you put more strain before it is ready, you might end up doing some permanent damage which would make it more difficult for you to bounce back. Maybe you can find an alternative to running that wouldnt put strain on your shoulder but yet still give your body the exercise it wants?
