turning a corner, maybe
This injury really got me down, to the point where I didn't want to post here, didn't want to log my lousy runs, didn't even want to read about running or racing. Some people have posted encouraging comments, and I really appreciate that. The reason I haven't replied isn't because I didn't care, but because I was sick of sounding so negative all the time.
But things might be looking up. It took a hurricane to force me into it, but last week I took 2 days off running. During that time, 2 out of 3 injuries settled way down, leaving only some PF that I'm attacking with everything I've got. Finally I can run with something approaching my normal gait (I wouldn't admit it while it was happening, but my gait was seriously screwed up with these injuries). I'm dog slow and my endurance is low, but I can run normally. Now my question is whether I can get anything back in time for Chicago.
4 weeks seems like an incredibly short time.
