I feel like I have had more than my fair share of injuries.
18 months of PT work/chiro and I am still having to take it easy.
I cannot push my training too hard, which means I cannot run as much as I want (limited to 30 miles a week) and I cannot do much speed work.
It is so frustrating and now something else may be popping up. I am praying that it isn’t plantar fasciitis, which it sounds like, and need you to keep your fingers crossed too.
I am trying to be smart about this and stop it/heal it before it turns into something major.
My schedule has looked a bit different this week because of it:
Monday: should be 5 miles of speed work – actually 5 mile walk
Tuesday: should be 1hr spin & lifting – actually rest
Wednesday: should be 7 miles tempo – actually rest again
It is very frustrating because I hate being injured and am so sick of always doubting my own health. Also, the back of my mind keeps reminding me that is is our annual Restaurant Week in Charleston and I have reservation to a few delicious, huge, unhealthy dinners which means many extra calories. Usually this wouldn’t bother me as it doesn’t happen often and I would just work hard on eating healthy the other days and sticking to my workouts. However, with 3 botched workouts in a row it is like I can actually feel myself expanding. I know it is probably not that severe, but it makes me feel kind of gross. Any one else ever get like that? How do you get over it?
