    Hi everyone! Yesterday i kicked myself and went for a run. I always associated part of my pain to running since it started when i began a 5k program. Everything went well Yesterday but today im in more pain. Should i continue? Is the fear of worsening the pain is killing the potential benefits?

    Hi, KevBin. If you need encouragement about continuing to run despite any pain, I suggest you read Steve Ozanich's book THE GREAT PAIN DECEPTION. He tells how he healed from back and leg and other pains by continuing to play golf and believing in Dr. Sarno's TMS concept of the MindBody connection. He learned that repressed anger caused his pains, anger over a doctor who botched his wife's operation that nearly ki;;ed her, and he also felt guilty that he let that happen.

    Resuming physical activity like running is helpful in healing.

    Good for you for persevering! You're sending a message to your subC that you won't be held hostage to the pain.
