I know people say, “Never say never,” but doesn’t that statement kind of cancel itself out? Like a big old statement-cancelling, say the opposite of what you’re saying, statement??? (I know there’s a word for that, but for now what it is escapes me.)
I was really afraid that maybe I would actually never be able to run again. I mean it had been weeks since I could run without pain and I worried everyday that maybe in my ignorance I had done permanent damage to my shin. I couldn’t even knock out a quick mile without limping for days afterwards. That’s pretty bad if you’re in training to run 26 of those bad boys.
But today for the first time in weeks, I ran without any pain. No knee pain, No shin pain. It was totally awesome!! Of course I came home and iced my leg and popped 2 ibuprofen just in case, but when I stood up, no pain. I was so happy I wanted to cry. Or go out and run another 3.5 miles in celebration but that would’ve probably been stupid, huh?? 🙂
I think sometimes you have to say never. I will never be a size 2 super model. I will never be an astro-physicist. I will never be the president of communist Russia. But I will run a marathon one day, and one day sooner rather than later.
(Oxymoron!!! That’s what its called. Man that was gonna bug me…)
