... or it is upon some of us... personally I'd be happy to just get back to training...
I've now been injured and unable to train for... about 4 weeks. My emotions have run the gamut from anger to frustration to defeat... all the while I am still trying to smile - but it's hard.
I have (4 weeks later) not yet got a confirmed diagnosis. Is it a hernia? Is it a stress fracture of my symphysis pubis? We just don't know... That is the most frustrating part. Oh - and the unrelenting pain in my groin. And. Orders to not do ANYTHING - not even go for a long walk (no problem there - it hurts too much anyway...)
So... I wasn't all that disappointed to miss running the half marathon at Mississauga on Sunday in the pouring rain except that I know I could have done even better than last year and I was so excited to run it and run it well... at my new super-fast pace... sigh...
Many of my friends and training partners ran fabulous race times and some qualified for Boston as well - congrats to all of them!
What's next? Well, I have a training long weekend planned in Muskoka for the weekend after next. That should be a blast (insert sarcasm here) - as everyone enjoys the hills for running and cycling... and I while away my time in the ice cream shop in town - LOL!
Followed by... Welland triathlon weekend! Yay!! I'm very excited that a friend of mine will be doing her first try a tri at Welland and she is petrified - remember that??! I know she's going to have a lot of fun and will do just fine :) I doubt that, unlike me, she will bawl her eyes out on the drive to the race site - so right there, she's got a lot going for her and more confidence than I had! LOL!
As for me... I will wait, oh so impatiently, for ultrasound results regarding the hernia situation and if it's not that... perhaps I can enjoy a bone scan or MRI for pelvic stress fracture investigations.
Onward... luckily I have fabulous camera equipment I can drag to races and photograph my friends...
Happy long weekend everyone!
