Bruising going crazy colours. Still feel like it's more a shuffle than a run. Still painful and have absolutely no power to my running at all. But for a while when I'm running I don't have to think about anything other than running. I don't have to talk to anyone about what happened. I don't have to think about the mess we have to deal with. I can breathe and concentrate on something physical.
It is still such hard work. I find myself chanting things to myself to keep going. Stupid stuff like 'you can do it, you can do it' over and over. I want to run the Robin Hood half marathon a week on Sunday. I went from wanting to complete it when I originally signed up, to wanting a time which was sub-2 hours. But now I'm back to wanting just to complete it. And if I have to chant my way around the whole 13.1 miles, then that's what I'm going to do.
I won't let this take my running too. I am struggling to process what's happened. I drove for the first time today and couldn't manage more than 15 mph. I can't talk to anyone about the accident without the tears coming. But I can run. It's slow and it's painful. But it's my bit of almost normal.
