I’ve been hoping that very soon I’d be able to say something to the effect of “I overcame an injury and PR’d my fastest 5k time”, or “I was sidelined for a while, but now I’m training for a half marathon”. You get the picture.
But here I am again. Hurt and unable to run.
I’ve had a string of injuries since December, but I think this one is the most frustrating because it’s not an IT band injury that can be fixed with stretching and hip strenghtening, or an overuse injury in the shin that can be helped with frequent icing and foam rolling. My clumsy ass went and fell in the shower, banged up my ribs, and pretty much all I can do is sit around and hope it heals quickly.
