1. What an amazing journey you’ve been on and I’m amazed you’ve been able to push through so many set backs. Thank goodness you got all that help to get you to where you are now. I haven’t had an injury but I’m feeling a little lost at the moment. I used to love running and was part of a club. I continued fine after the birth of my first but got pregnant again when she was 9 months. I think I nearly lost my mind looking after 2 young children. Then I returned to a new, full on FT job and I have no time for me. I so need to find the inner strength you have to just get back and do it. When you wake at 6.30, deal with two Little’s before work, come back at 6.30 then put them to bed at 8.30 it feels like it’s impossible to fit anything else in. But for the sake of my physical and mental health, this post has really hit a nerve. I need to reclaim some me time for everyone’s sake!

  2. Pains me to hear how rough you have had it. But also an interesting conclusion, that your physical exercise was what kept you going.

    I have experienced something similar with an injury followed by depression, and I also suspect that the exercise was the thing holding it back until the injury.

    All the more reason to keep exercising I guess.

    • Thanks Marcus, exercise is so powerful. Now I try and keep a number of options in reserve these days just in case of injury. I hope you are doing well now 🙂
