Okay… so yesterday I went to my sports doctor.
It was a normal day until he said the words…
“I want you to run for 15 minutes…”
“Stop scrunching your eyebrows.”
“Your face is hilarious, but seriously you need to try to run.”
I believe my faced looked a little like…
After asking him if he was serious about 15 times, feeling like I was about to hurl, and nervously smiling so large my jaw was about to break…
He told me the scar tissue in my knee needs to be broken up.
He told me to balance on a Boku ball which was helping, so my instructions were…
1) Balance on the ball
2) Run 15 minutes… “AND NO MORE”
So… tonight, off to the gym I went. I was literally shaking the whole entire drive to LA Fitness.
had to pee so much in my life was so nervous to run before… EVER.
So, I got to the gym, laced up my shoes…
nervously confidently proceeded out of the locker room for my run.
I put Rise Againt on my Shuffie and began to run…
It was heaven. No pain. No NOTHING.
Just me. My music. My life. All coming back to me. As well as watching the Eagles kick butt. 😉
It was pure bliss… And as soon as the clock hit 15:00 I hit STOP!
Doctor’s orders! 😉
Then, I did the elliptical for 15 minutes pretty much to continue watching the Eagles game.
I’m almost positive I might be kicked out of L.A. Fitness now…
For scaring half of the members with my psychotic smile because I was cheezin’ the entire time.
SO HAPPY. SO THANKFUL.
Let’s just hope tomorrow morning I don’t wake up and my knee has fled the country and changed his name.
Today has been the best day in 3 months.
And it’s going to be a long road,
but I’m determined to make it a healthy and happy life.
What’s something you accomplished today?
Running for the first time in 3 + months!!!!!!!
Do you have a favorite (or multiple) band/s you listen to while you exercise?
I have multiple, but I love Rise Against, Jimmy Eat World, Brand New, and Dubstep remixes. Haha. I’ll listen to anything but country, really.
Have you ever gotten such good news you felt sick from excitement?
When my doctor told me I could run, that was SUCH an awkward feeling. lol
