What's the best thing anyone's ever done or said to cheer you when injured?

  1. #dailymission I don't get injured. I'm white.

  3. #dailymission: During my inaugural collegiate XC season, I was injured leading up to our home meet. After limping through the course and being the last man still out on the course due an impartiall... read more

  4. #dailymission My PT helped me get through PF for my first HIM. When I injured my knee in a subsequent race, I returned with an IM on the horizon. His first words: "We've done this before.... read more

      I remember when they said, "We'll be removing your cast today." Excellent news!

      I do love hearing those words and remember turning that corner myself a couple times. Hang in there.

      Its. So. Difficult. I never realized what an addict I am until it was taken from me. :) Thanks for the encouragement you guys! Seems like my local running buddies forgot all about me when I went down. Good thing I'm more of a solo-runner! :)

      I sprained my ankle while training for my first half... I think the most helpful thing for me was realizing that my although I may need a few weeks to heal my ankle... it had taken me YEARS to heal my attitude and perspective about running and a healthy lifestyle (previously I did zero working out). I hope that you heal quickly!

      When seriously injured, nothing can cheer you up. There is nothing like the depression that comes from being injured. When you are injured you will have good days and bad days. Good days are spent xtraining like a good little injured runner and believing that you really will come back stronger from all of this. Then there's the bad days, when you feel defeated, feel like giving up, you cry for no reason, you feel disappointed, angry, frustrated, and mad, you hate running and everyone that can.

      Well, at least they called a spade a spade... you left it all out there and pushed super-hard when you should have pulled back. You gave it your all... be proud.

  10. #dailymission when i broke my leg, my wife would hide my crutches and laugh as i tried to get down the stairs. great motivation to heal up.

  11. #dailymission. I met Bill Rodgers at the expo of my first marathon. Super guy. Asked about my training. I mentioned some injuries. He said finessing the injuries is half the fun. Love that.... read more

      I agree ... when I came to that realization it made running this go around more fun - now if I can get a little faster ... ;-).

      hahah I love Rodgers. I saw him friday before Boston. Instead of telling us how to survive Boston, he told us all the times he DNF on the course, once while camera's were following him where he went to a bar on mile 18 instead. I thought about hitting up that bar at mile 18 as well.

  12. #dailymission I think my mom once said "it's your own fault" .. not sure that was a cheer though.... sounded more like a sneer.
