Time to face the facts.

As you all know, last year around October I started having issues with my hip and my knees due to running and most probably over-training. I have been seeing a physiotherapist for it since December and even though I’ve made huge improvements, it is highly obvious that running aggravates my injuries seriously everytime.

It’s time to face the music…

I’ve come to the conclusion that running just might not be my thing.

It’s hard for me to admit, but I haven’t been able to properly run since last year. Besides, I’ve really begun to find great peace and enjoyment in JuJitsu and other martial arts training. It is hard to accept that my greatest love and I are not compatible, but hey, maybe it just means I should look to other things (like jujitsu :D), to stay fit and healthy.

I would like to continue to run every now and then as part of a regular exercise routine, but it definitely won’t be as frequently as in the past.

I’m quite surprised at how ok I am about this revelation. I did sort of become obsessed and addicted to running, so the fact that I’m not on the verge of an emotional breakdown comes as a pleasant surprise! 🙂

In other news…

I’m terribly exhausted at the moment… It’s insane. I actually feel so so physically and mentally exhausted, I feel as though I could go to bed and sleep for days.

My whole body hurts- My legs feel like bricks, my shoulder is insanely painful from pulling it in JuJitsu, I have a coughing-induced headache and my early cold symptoms are swiftly progressing.

What I would give for 3 days off to do nothing but internet-surf, sleep, read and watch TV.

I don’t know why I feel this awful (well the cold sort of is understandable, what with the season change and stuff), but I can’t explain the rest of the fatigue.

In terms of my weird eating habits, not a lot has changed there… I’m still fussy. I do eat breakfast and such because I know how important it is and I hate skipping meals, but it does make eating on a regular basis hard.

I’m sorry this isn’t very long, I’m dying to go put my feet up and read my book. I’ll talk to you later 🙂

Hey there, my name's Jenny. I have a huge passion for cooking/baking, writing, yoga and photography. I love nature and my favourite thing to do is spend an entire day outside, breathing in crisp, fresh air. Even better if I have a pen and paper with me. I started out running in March 2009 but sustained an injury in October 2009 which has unfortunately prevented me from running. I've been experimenting with other kinds of exercise to find another one that clicks. Follow me on my journey to maintaining good health + surviving high school and pursuing a career in Journalism. I Hope you enjoy reading my blog!
