I love these legs. And because I love them, I’m resting them.
One of the physicians I work with was kind enough to take a look at my ankle today and he confirmed I agitated a tendon above my ankle and recommended 2 weeks off from running. So 8 more days to go…
He is also a runner and he totally understood my disappointment. Running is my out. It’s how I unwind from my day or pep myself up for a long one… But he made me feel tons better with this:
“Laura, you have already qualified for Boston. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself right now. It won’t hurt your training that much and you’ll be grateful you didn’t injure yourself more in the long run.”
Since long running is what I do best, I think I’ll take his advice.
