One step forward, two steps back...

One of the pillars of my physical rehab philosophy is too steadily push the envelope. So far, this has always worked until... last Sunday when I decided to suddenly transition from walking into running three and a half miles. This was a very bad idea and today, I'm paying dearly from it as I can no longer run, as pain reminds me of my speed limit that has just been reset to some lower level.
Well, faced with this reality I can only learn from it and better understand that pushing too far, too fast is playing Russian roulette and can sometime backfire. Until I feel good enough for getting back into running, I'll be more patient and more prudent. Promised!
