Day 4 - Holy Crap! What Have I Done??
|"Untitled" 2010 - Krista Cavender|
Then, the knot monster in my left calf started talking obscenities at me. Then he started screaming at me and moving around, making sharp jabby knife-like motions. Now I had done it. I can't run barefoot. I can't run shodded. I can't run. Crap.
Then it got emotional. I seriously need to run. I want my therapy. I want to work hard, breathe deep and sweat. Is that too much to ask? I felt tears.
Headed home and decided to do some rolling of my calf and try again. I picked a loop around my house that was flat and close. I did one lap around the block and I was done. One quarter mile of shodded running. One mile barefoot total. Not enough to get my running mojo back. Not enough to get my sanity back.
I guess what this all means is that I have to take yet another break. For me I'm not sure I can call this a "break" since running is my break. For now, maybe I'll work some cycling in. Damn.
