Its’ been a while since I wrote here. A lot has happened in the past 3 weeks, but I’m back and (hopefully) better than ever!
Tonight I’m going to get in my first run since I was told to take it easy by my Doc. In past posts you’ve heard me complain about leg pain. Well it never got any better. So my wife suggested I go get checked out before I do some serious damage.
So I headed over to the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, after a set of x-rays on my legs and some very painful poking and prodding of my shins, the doc suggested I go for a bone scan.
If you’ve never had to go through this long process, be thankful. It was 2 days of laying still on a table while this machine takes a glorified x-ray.
So now that I’ve been given clearance to slowly start training again, I find that I’m less motivated. I guess 3 weeks of no running and a lot of partying will do that to you.
So I’ve been looking for ways to get motivated. I changed up my ipod playlist, I’ve been talking to a few of my running friends. I think I’ve tried everything with the exception of getting my own Rastafarian Hype Man!
While surfing online today I came across this video to promote the World Cup. If watching this doesn’t hype you up, I’m not sure what will!
So I’m heading out for a run, you watch and enjoy! Keep an eye out this week for another installment of Distance Running in the next day or so!
One thought on “Fallen off the grid!”
Glad you’re getting back at it! Great video!
