What’s Wrong With Me?

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?
