my marathon is in 7 days.
i trained through the NICU. through hem/onc. i ran post-call. i ran PRE-call. i ran after work, when at least half of me didn’t feel like taking another step. i ran long — 18 miles, 19, 20, 21, 20 again, 22, and finally a last 18. this week, i finally reached the Promise Land of the taper, and it felt great.
UNTIL MY EFFING HIP STARTED TO HURT. actually, i guess it’s more like my groin. sports medicine expert that i am (ha), i have self-diagnosed myself with iliopsoas tendonitis. i will have add several more psychiatric diagnoses to that if i can’t run my race.
let the healing begin.
