Too Soon To Say Stop

Posted on October 9, 2010


Facing the prospect of halting my training is extremely discouraging.  I am almost 100% positive I have tendonitis in my ankle.  I’m angry, upset and a wide array of curse words that are too many to mention.  I have, for the most part, been positive.  But my outlook suddenly looks grim.  I have followed the training program and I have done what I can to keep myself healthy.  However, it seems as though the cards are slowly being stacked against me.  What if I don’t get better with a week’s rest?  What if the problem gradually gets worse?  The possibility that I may have to cancel my marathon training is too much to bear right now.
