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.
