Just got back from this week’s trip to the doc. The good news: I won’t see him again until a week from Wednesday. The bad news: I have more ligament stripping in my future for that day.
It’s been just a few days shy of a month and this has got me down. I’ve never had a running-related issue that wasn’t well on the way to being resolved (if not completely resolved) in a month.
I’m going to try some gentle, easy running while I have the prodding-free time and see what happens. And based on what happens over the next week, I’ll make a decision about my upcoming races.
Honestly, I’ll be glad to see 2009 go; I’ve had more health-related downtime in the last 14 months than I have previously had in my entire running career all combined.
