For nearly the past week, I have not been running. I got into a pattern with my running buddy where we would meet and she would determine the route and I would simply follow her. She is amazing because we never ran the same route twice. She always choice a different place to run but we still got in the miles. She injured herself before our scheduled long run last Saturday morning and I have not run since. I can not seem to get my mojo back to run by myself.
I have passed the jump start of getting me back running again post surgery but now I need to draw inner motivation to get out the door by myself. I don’t think I’ll be running with her again on a regular basis any time soon and the question remains, “What do I do now?” We’ll see what I can pull from my inside. I do not like running with a watch and now need to make peace with this because I’ll need a watch to help me chart my course and miles. I’m entering the next step.
