@missingWDW I had forgotten about this thread! I’m rarely on d-cot, besides to put on background music. I haven’t really ran since March 2020 when our race got cancelled and then the next race was cancelled in November 2020. I literally lost all motivation to run and have yet to find it. I do miss running though. And I keep saying that I need to get back out there! Well, now it’s summer and we will be hitting 100* tomorrow. So we won’t cool down much overnight anymore so my opportunity will be very limited. But I am trying to convince myself to just get up early and try to give it a go! I did get out and run/walk 1 mile a week or two ago and I didn’t die! So I just need to start with slow and steady short runs to build up my endurance again. I have 2 virtual medals to still earn! They are still in their boxes in the closet. They will not be displayed until I’ve earned them. I have a 10k and a half marathon to complete. I hope others have still continued their running journey!
I actually hadn’t gone for a run in a long time until the 6 weeks after Easter this year. I joined in a challenge with 2 other guys that involved doing twice a week, “run, walk, or crawl a 5k” among many other things. I’m pleased to say that I think I did pretty well considering it had been a year or more since my last endurance run.
@eeyorepoohfan SAME for me with the cancellations! I was all set to do a half in April 2020, then again the following year. both were cancelled. Since then I’ve been dealing with one injury after another. Now my knee is shot. I keep saying I’m going to get back at it, but honestly I think that’s a pipe dream. I am going to make another appointment with the ortho and have him go in and see what’s going on exactly. A big part of me doesn’t really want to know because I don’t want to hear my running days are over
School is out for me next week, so hopefully I can get in to see him again soon after that. If I do have surgery, I’d like it to be in the summer when I’m off work. We’ll see.
Best of luck to you finishing your virtual races!!!!
You got this girl!
@rocketear99 wahoo!! Way to go!!!!
@missingwdw oh no! I’m sorry to hear your knee is still giving you such issues! Sometimes ignorance is bliss with injuries. But on the clip side, it’s helpful to know how to proceed forward! I pray the ortho has some answers and solution for you! And I truly do hope you can get back out on the running trail again one day! Thank you! I will try to remember to post when I get back into training again! I need to earn this medals!
