My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou


Weekly Running Update: Nov. 26- Dec. 2

“It’s the same with people who say, ‘Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ Even people who say this must realize that the exact opposite is true. What doesn’t kill you maims you, cripples you, leaves you weak, makes you whiny and full of yourself at the same time. The more pain, the more pompous you get. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you incredibly annoying.
~Rob Sheffield, Love is a Mix Tape (Goodreads)

Well, not much of a running update this week, seeing as how I did not run at all.  I have been having some lower back pain for a few weeks after getting a shot for a sinus infection.  It took a turn for the excruciating this week, so I did not make it out.  Nothing I took for it helped & the only way I could be at all comfortable was lying down.  It was awful & I cried a few times it hurt so bad.  I’m going to the doctor tomorrow & hopefully will get some good news.  I thought it would go away on its own in a couple of weeks or so, but I was mistaken.

So blah, hopefully I’ll be back to running soon but after the pain got so bad I started having visions of ending up paralyzed or at least permanently stuck with the pain so I wanted to not risk making things worse.
