Since I have been increasing my mileage a lot for my double halfs, I have become very worried about getting injured.
I woke up in the middle of the night and my ankle hurt, of course this means I have a stress fracture.
My shins hurt for a few minutes during a run, so I obviously have shin splints.
I had a little pain in my right knee after my tempo run, definitely means patellar tendonitis.
So now I am icing, resting, wearing a PT strap, etc. trying to avoid injury at all costs. I think I am just being cautious. But, perhaps I am being paranoid. Or a hypochrondriac. Or both.
But can you blame me? After reading about other bloggers' various injuries (and long recoveries), that is the last thing I want. My races are only 2 weeks away! At this point I am willing to do just about anything to ensure I show up at the start line(s) injury-free.
If you have any injury prevention tips or advice, I would love to hear it!
