Two years ago I trained for the Brooklyn Half Marathon. I was so excited with each passing mile and felt accompliashed every week. That was until 7 miles where I injured myself. I was in such intense pain that it hurt to walk, sit, and work let alone run. I was devastated at the time that I would not run that year, but slowly realized that I was injured for a greater purpose.
One would think that as a bodyworker, I would do everything right while putting my body under the intensity of training. I thought that I was, but I failed to see the muscle imbalances in my body. Since my injury, I have spent time learning what happened and creating stability so that I can now run safely.
I am happy to report that I ran 11 miles on Saturday, and enjoyed every minute of it! Sometimes you need to make mistakes so that you can help others. I appreciate my injury because it has allowed me to understand intrinsic strength so that I may help you, my clients better. If you are in pain, let's work it out together so that you can be your best self!
