Warning: Injured Runners May Bite

angry runner
Today’s post is short and to the point. To all my injured, grumpy runners…it may only be fair to warn those who must coexist among us until we’re back and able to put in the miles. 🙂

1) Best stay happy thought during an injury?
Be grateful I can at least do SOMETHING (ie: cross-train), take it day by day, and know that when I get back to running I’ll appreciate it all the more!

2) Thing you’re most looking forward to this weekend?
Some exciting designing going on in my brain that I’m looking forward to!

  1. Oh Cait, I hope you are back racking up the miles soon! I will be sure to run harder tomorrow because you wish you could be and you are unable at the moment.
    This weekend I am most looking forward to another challenging yoga class and another brownie for dessert tonight!
    Get better soon my friend 🙂

  2. Hang in there!! I’ve been there many times and it sucks!!! I was at times a royal grump when I was injured.

    I reckon focus on being the best you can be (minus the running part). Take the vitamins, calcium etc, work on your strength, cross train etc. And keep the faith- you’ll be back on the road soon 🙂

    • thanks so much for stopping by!! ya, cross-training saves me mentally, if i weren’t able to do anything at all, i would turn into a beast…hehe. 🙂

  3. Best stay happy thought: Well, at least I know I could do a triathlon now!! Haha but really, I know how to perk myself up with injuries – I know almost too well! One thing that helps is to remember that no one is immune to injuries. The elites get them. Masters get them. Beginners get them. Anyone – and it sucks for everyone too, so that’s why we all have to make the best of it!

    • “i know almost too well!” <---- haha...so funny in the 'it's not really haha funny' way...but i think we all feel like that when we're in the midst of cross-training...hehe. 🙂

  4. oh god, its so true. Usually I can at least cross-train, but if I’m starved for endorphins….ooh no good, don’t get near me haha. I like to tell myself that I will always come back stronger and smarter after injury – and I really do jump on the opportunity to learn!

    • haha…i can see the newsheadlines now: band of disgruntled injured runners run amok on the city…if u thought the fear of King Kong was bad…. 😉

    I’m on month 2 of Runner’s Knee rehabbing. PT, no running, taking it easy. IT SUCKS. Thankfully I can do some other activities but my brain and my heart need something else!!!
