I’ve been officially cleared to run for a few weeks now…
I have not actually run, not a real run at least.
I jogged for 10 seconds, I had no pain, no discomfort, no sign that I shouldn’t run, expect for the fear in my head.
Weird right? All year all I wanted to do was run, 1 mile, 5 miles, just run and I wasn’t allowed/able, now that I am allowed, I freeze.
What’s wrong with me? Why the hell am I scared to run?
I’m going to try to run again this evening with out expectations on time and distance blah blah blah. I guess I’m scared to get hurt again (I never want an ugly boot ever again) and nervous I’m not fully healed from child-birth (even though I know I am) must be like pre race jitters?
Has anyone ever experienced fear to run when coming back from an extended break or is it just me?
