This is not my friend

I hit it. Hard. While running. (not really what I signed on for in terms of "running injury").
I love running as a part of a group - solo runs are very challenging for me mentally. However, every now and then, there is a disadvantage to running in a group. Like when the people running in front of you part to the side, and you find your chest slamming into a parking meter and then reeling backwards from the force.

These things happen....I will hurt for a while, maybe bruise, but I will be fine.

The harder part for me is overcoming my resulting mood. It was a beautiful morning, the sun was shining. Inside my mind, the world screams FAILURE.....SETBACK........I'm very hard on myself. I retreat. I lose my positivity for a while - I keep going but I don't feel good about it. Those who know me best carry on as if everything is normal - if you can brave my grumpiness, more power to you. This is me, it's who I am. I eventually bounce back.

Afterall....I do have a goal to run towards.



Very proud of how you handle yourself and the fact your kept going and pushed through a tough run! You're stronger and you're braver than most!
