I'm ready to focus more on some of my past physical work injuries.
I've been putting SO much energy into healing emotional trauma, I've become inconsistant healing some of the physical ones.
You know those minor/part of the job/ I'll sleep it off type of "oh shit, this is an injury, and it's too late to report it" things? Those ones.
They linger, and do not heal themselves apparently 🙄. 🧘♀️ I've learned some basic yoga moves and foam roller techniques to create a somewhat routine for myself.. that would work a lot better if I was more...routine with it 🤦♀️. I always run with my knee brace on, but It's scary acknowledging multiple injuries while running alone in public as a female.. HELLOOOO anxious thought spirals. 🥴 😬 Do I look weak? Do I appear more vulnerable?... STOP THAT.
I was worried about the brace feeling too awkward to run in and slipping everywhere. (You can't see the part that wraps around my stomach)
I'm ready to face these challenges, and give my injuries the respect they deserve. I'm tired of feeling older than I am with soreness and swelling all too often. My run felt AMAZING tonight, compared to only wearing my knee brace.
AND, I've learned that it gives a more secure fit for my pocket knife 👊
