Anyone watched the game on Sunday? Did your team win? I had a great time with family members watching the game and commercials and eating all of the food. And let’s not forget the halftime performance. While I am not a fan of Shakira nor JLo, I thought they did AMAZING.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: Tell us about an injury that sidelined you from running and how you dealt with it. You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post.

It seems like running and injuries go together. I’ve been running for over 10 years and have had my share of injuries. Each one has been different, but I’ve been able to recover and run again.
My list of injuries include IT band, calf strain, plantar fasciitis, and runner’s knee. I feel like there are more but cannot remember. Oh and let’s not forget my fall last month.
How do I deal with an injury?
Why me? Why did this happen to me?
An injury happens to a lot of runners. I remind myself that I am not the only one. But I still have the same questions “Can I still run?” or “When can I run again?” Luckily my injuries haven’t been too serious and I’ve been able to run again.
I take advantage of this extra time to recover and heal. Oh, and sleep more too! 🙂
√ Do another activity
I catch up on TV shows or read a book. I use my Peloton to stay active until I can run again.
√ Be patient
Yeah, this is a hard one but very important. I mean I cannot make an injury go away or make it recover faster. I have to wait and hope that I don’t get another injury. 🙂
Every runner is different and we all react differently. Injuries are definitely not a fun thing to have but many times “they just happen”. I’ve had my share of injuries and have always felt grateful that it wasn’t too serious for me to stop running forever.
