Today was a good day. I found out I get to start running more and I faced some fears.
When I got home from physical therapy, where I found out that I can run three minutes and walk two minutes for 45 minutes, I immediately put my running shoes and head out the door. I have been waiting, not patiently, for the day I could start running, I wasn’t going to waste any time.
I knew exact what I needed to do, I needed to run the route that I ran the day I slipped and fell. I had been avoiding that area. I have been cleared to walk for a month and yet I could never bring myself to take that route. Today, I was going to face the fear!
I got slightly emotional as I got closer to the spot where I slipped but I knew I needed to get there to face the fear.
I made myself stop and feel all the feelings I had about that spot and the day of the fall. Amazingly, there were no tears!
And as I stood there, I had a thought (more to come on that). After a few minutes I headed off to finish up my run.
When I got home I got in the car and ran to Target to get some chalk (here is where the thought starts). I drove home and with my chalk I went for a walk. I walk back to where the fall happened and I left that piece of sidewalk a message…
I felt so much better after writing that message. It is time to move on and up to the better me!
