I went for another treatment today and it felt like the others - painful, but possibly getting me one step closer to good healthy muscles. We all just want answers and this session was no different. Do I run? And should I run a couple of miles or quite a few miles? Do I cross train or is this pointless? Do I stretch and tone with pilates... or yoga? Will I cause permanent damage if I run the marathon? Will I cause enough damage to hinder my chances of enjoying travelling?
I tried an ice bath after I got back from Amsterdam this weekend, hoping this would give me some relief like it did after the 20 mile run. We all know really that no-one can give me the magic fix and no-one can giving me the answers I'm looking for sooner than they can tell you the answers to your exam; whether the new job is a good idea; or whether giving your friend another chance is worth it.
What does help is my emotions. Whether my body is ready or not, my mind still needs to be ready. I need to feel like I've done everything I can. I need to trust that my body is ready. And I know I have a huge community of support. They won't let me fail.
