Literally the hrdest part for you will be getting out that door.
Wait till the school breaks up, then do a sixty minute session of either gym/cross training or a run, low speed, flat and off road (nice safe trail to minimise potential injury) and try and remember why you run - because it is enjoyable.
The feeling of relief and smugness you will feel after breaking your spell of apathy will taste a lot better than the guilt.
Its your brain that is sabotaging you and not your injury - so don;t let it win.
Good luck and we have al been there so you are not on your own.
Have you consisdered joining a club?
I was a teacher until recently and sometimes had difficulty motivating myself after a rough day at the chalkface. However if I could get myself down to the club I always got dragged around by someone, especially during the long dark nights or long sunday runs ( as well as a medicinal pint or two afterwards)
