Being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis last year is the worst thing I’ve ever heard. The fact is that I can’t do any physical work too much for months, just laying down on bed, being fatigue and flare on my joints.
But with determination and keep in my mind that I am strong, finally I can comeback to my normal life and start again what I like ><. And now, what a miracle, I can do anything without being in pain. That’s why I decided to run again!!
My target this year is 10K Jakarta marathon on 23rd October 2016. What a luck, I registered in promo price IDR 180K when normal price is IDR 600K 😀
That is not an easy target because if I begin to stop my medication (which are methotrexate and sulfasalazine) then I feel again any little pain on my joints, I have to stop any hard exercise and start another medication. But I have no worry for that. I’ve designed my training plan clearly until I reach my 10K target under supervision of my doctor.
First step, I started to do yoga to strengthen my muscle and joints. Then I’ll try to run in small distance. Step by step until I reach 10 K in about 8 months. Do you think that is impossible?? Dare to run again??
