Warning: Must Run To Play Well With Others

The MRI results are in, and I can’t run. For awhile.

My remaining expendable organs are safe. whew But, I have a tear around one of my spine-legos and running or jumping will make it worse, a lot worse, so I can’t run. At all. But I can fast-walk the half-marathon in Nashville… Maybe.

The Doc says I should practice fast-walking a few miles this week, and then listen to my body… And then I can decide if I can do 13.1 miles. So right now, it’s still a maybe.

And when the lego-casing tear heals, I will be able to run again. But until then, I can elliptical, do Yoga, Pilates, maybe fast-walk until it hurts, and ride my bike.

In a nutshell, I’m definitely going to be a bitch. For awhile.

    Oh so sorry! I totally get it. Nothing else really quite measures up. I hope the time passes quickly for you.

      Thanks 🙂 I’m headed out now to try the fast-walking-thing, or as my Hubs calls it, the tin-soldier-thing. Joining the senior citizen parade… Do-dah-do-dah

    I’d have to check, but I think I had the same response as wonder twin. I still think it’s a yay moment. No surgery, goofball. No losing any expendable body parts.

      Of course you had the exact same response as Hubs. LOL You said “Yay, no surgery.” And I was driving, so before I could respond, you said, “Boo, no running,” and then you asked “how long,” I couldn’t run.

      You know, you and Wonder Twin really need to figure out how to sync up the input part of this twin-shit; because what you put outta your mouths is exactly the same, and its doubling up my workload -not to mention totally creeping me out 🙂
