Feeling like a Warrior

Posted Monday 12th October 2015   By Ericka Waller

So yesterday I completed the Warrior run. 10k of mud, rivers, nets, tunnels, tyres, obstacles, monkey bars and being brave. I can't walk today. There is no part of me not bruised, grazed or aching. My arms are so weak I crashed into the car next to me on nursery pick up. Luckily I only took off a wing-mirror. I bent down to retreive it and could not get back up again.

If I don't exercise I feel guily

So right now I have an injury and I can't run. It looks like my injury is from doing too much running, especially hill runs. Because of my Rheumatoid Arthritis, I am more susceptible to injuries and problems. It's frustrating because I am fit enough to run far, and pretty fast, but my legs and feet can't take the pounding. I've been signed off exercise for five days. I am on day two and I am already being a bit grumpy, and the guilt has set in.
