Coming Back

I'll admit it, this hip injury has me down.  I am just back to running a full 5K distance & starting over from square one is not easy physically & mentally.  I keep doubting myself, I feel my hips get tight & I get scared, I worry I am going to hurt myself more, I wonder if I should push harder or ease up.  Lately I've been taking the ease up route & well that's not doing much for the mental game. 

I'm practicing being nicer to myself.  I think on my long run this Sunday I will not wear a watch.  I am going to go by how I feel & try to pick it up when I can & ease off if I need to.  We'll see how it goes.
