Still can’t run! The last two days have actually been more painful than earlier in the week. Wish I knew why. Guess I did walk a little more — but it’s hard to say if it’s that, or if it’s the 15 minute bike I did yesterday, or something else. Hmm.
I’m going to call my doctor tomorrow. Maybe I need to get some sort of scan done — did I tear something? Is it just a whole lot of inflamation? Stress fracture? I think it’s just inflamation, but then wouldn’t feel a little better? It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve run any sort of distance.
At this point, I think it’s unrealistic to run the full at Fargo. Bummer. That race is in 4 weeks. Based on how I feel today, I think I’d be pumped to be running a mile in 2 weeks. Much less racing 26.2 in 4 weeks.
I will say that this is the first time that I haven’t freaked out over an injury. I’ve been really patient with it. Can’t run today? Bummer, but oh well. Can’t race at Alumni or Fargo? Let’s look for another race to target. I’m pretty confident that once I’m over this, I’ll come back pretty quickly and can still have a very good shot of the sub-2:50 goal by the end of the year. At least, I’m really, really hopefull!!
