i know my writing doesn’t reflect it, but i’ve been running. pretty regularly at that. the past few weeks were finally bringing back a feeling of control and dedication. i stopped insisting on trying to make a definitive decision on trying to BQ and simply started to run. no training schedule to adhere to yet, no times to beat and no pressure. maybe it was simply the love of the run that kept me from admitting there was an issue. but i don’t think i can deny it anymore.

i can’t pinpoint the pain. yesterday i’d have sworn it was in the arch of my foot. today, the ankle. this morning i thought it was swollen and a little blue. this afternoon i think i was imagining it. five minutes ago i sat on hold with my insurance company to find out if i need a referral for the specialist. right now i’m convinced i simply need to adhere to a regimen of rest and ice. i can’t make a decision in either direction and my frustration is ever increasing.

i’m not good at this. i don’t like to give into pain. i don’t like to admit something is wrong. and i don’t like to be unable to run. the endorphin withdrawl crash hits hard. it’s not a good day. let the downward spiral begin.
