Missing the Run

It has only been 10 days since Stone Cat and I have only logged a total of 12.5 miles due to injury. I keep telling myself to hit the gym hard and all will be good. I will maintain my level of fitness and be fine. The problem is it just does'nt feel the same. I know 10 days is not long and many of us have experienced more substantial injuries and been out of running for long periods of time. In my opinion that does not reduce the feeling a runner has when running is not an option. An infinite number of hours in the gym will not satisfy me. I have been trying to come up with the perfect way to explain this and I think I found it in the words of another. My old friend Navin R. Johnson once said:

"I know we have only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed like just a day, and then you came back and later on on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it started seeming like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemd like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half."

You follow me? Peace
