Well, I have to say that joining this thread has already helped me to become more motivated.
The last time I went running I ran straight for almost as long as I was running before the injury, so that was great! Although unfortunately, my bubble was broken by a gym member/instructor who told me that running was bad for women...??? She said that she was told this due to her being diagnosed with arthris. She also has suffered a much worse back injury, so I should not compare myself to her.
Why do people always have to tell people like us motivated and enjoying what we do something depressing like that.
