It’s true, runners do not make good patients. We are probably pretty stubborn as a group and we rarely want to see the big picture of an injury. In our defense, running is very addictive. It just makes you feel good about life. Plus, who wants to give up months of training just before a race? This is my dilemma. Yes, I know it makes no sense at all if you are not a runner. So I am still not running in hopes that I can race on Sunday (5k). And the next Sunday (18 miler). And the one after that (perfect 10 miler).
Cross training it is for now. At least someone was excited about it!
Here are some common reasons runners get injured. Keep these in mind during your training.
My boys are so sweet. Dane got the couch all set up for me after dinner and insisted that I sit down and ice my leg. My sweetie. <3
It has been forever since I ran a 5k. I am really only running this weekend to honor my dear friend and all of the women out there who are battling or have battled breast cancer. There is no race quite as stressful as the 5k because really, anything is possible. This is why I gave them up.
So, I am wondering, – my runner friends, if it was you what would you REALLY do about these upcoming races and training?
