I´m thinking this more from that point of view, sports, my future and healthy. How I am seeing myself after 10 years? Am I gonna be just in sofa, in bad health and just... gonna worn out.
OR, am I gonna be in good health, still having that sparkle in my eyes and running 10km like younger?
Why I´m thinking this now..is simple. Now it´s good time for me to do what I love to do: run. Of course I could start it all aver again later...but now, like money in the bank. I have walked long routes and long times. There was that brake, when my ankle was broken.
After that, it was harder to begin again. I was almost half year trapped with my leg, small walks, that´s it. And I truly saw, that half year is a long time for keeping a brake!
I started with walk. Those routes, that I use to walk..long ones..not a chance! That was such a disappointment to me. To be honest, I was thinking to quit running... felt so down.
Now, I have walked again, longer times and routes. That question: what really matters? Not giving up. That´s what matters to me now.
I have been training determined with my body and mind. That mind-part was definitely the hardest part! I wont lie, I fought with myself to get started again.
But now...Yesterday and today..I ran!!! Not too far, but it´s a start again. And I´m not giving up.
From that day, when I broke my ankle...in this day..I lost something. My sparkle in sport. I was maybe a bit bitter and felt self-pity...
I still have to be little careful with that ankle, but I´m not letting it stop me. Not anymore.
I need to have patient to start over, slowly but surely. One day...It will be ok again. And before that, I will enjoy those smaller steps on my way.
It´s never too easy to start all over again, but definitely worth it.
