Come on ligaments, hurry up and mend - let me run!

I want to run, I want to don those unflattering leggings that cost the earth, dig out those muddy trail shoes and pull my bobble hat down over my ears. I want stride out to the warm up tunes of audio fuel and hear Laura's soothing encouragement in my ears. I want to disappear back into a world only recently discovered, of me and the road, or the muddy track. I want to feel my blood rising, my shoulders releasing, I want to feel the damp seeping through the mesh of my shoes, and feel the spatter on my calves as I idly wonder if I will need to wash them before my next run. I want to fiddle in frustration with my ipod as I pull my ear plugs out of it as my running arms flail, I want to yell at my dog to keep up, I want to yell at cars to give us room, I want to dodge the puddles and puff up the hills. I want to check my distance and speed excitedly at the end on mapmyrun, I want to text my sister to say I've done it (forcing her to do it too), I want to see my bright eyed, bright red face staring back at me in the mirror as I hang my jacket up, I want that BANANA!

I want to run.

Love it!

But feel your pain at not being able to get out there. Has the doc given you any indication of how long you'll have to wait?
