It’s that time again. Time to get things off my chest with Marcia’s Runfessions at Marcia’s Healthy Slice…
1. I runfess…
I diagnosed my own foot problem. Doesn’t Google know everything?
I was too impatient to wait for my doctor to come up with something.
Have you Googled your injury instead seeking a professional’s opinion?
2. I runfess…
I did go to a Doctor but I did not follow his advice. Again too impatient. I abstained from running for 3 weeks and I wasn’t getting better so I ran.
And my foot still hurt but it did not feel worse.
Have you ignored a doctor’s advice regarding resting an injury?
Once I started running, my foot felt slightly better (at least it did in my mind). So I continued running… cautiously with lots of rest days.
Has running ever made an injury feel less painful?
4. I runfess…
So my foot felt a little better while running that 6 miler so I ran a New Year’s Day race. Not sure if it was because I ran faster or the course was hillier but my foot hurt more!!!
Anyone else impatient when injured?
Once I re-started my weekend long runs, I decided to run the Fred LeBow Half Marathon in NYC … even though I skipped the 7, 9, 11 and 12 milers. Yikes.
Even run a half marathon under-trained or with only 1 double digit run?
