I am officially injured, a Doctor said so. The right side of my pelvis is locked and is causing pain in my knee, neck, hip and foot. Basically I am wonky on one side and have limited movement on the right so that goes to explain why I walk into walls and veer off diagonally when swimming.
See, I am not always drunk - I just look it.
What he's told me explains a lot.
But I don't think all is lost because he is a Chiropractor and did some bone manipulating and evil deep tissue massaging that has helped a heap. I walked in there with a limp and out without one, I am no way pain free though.
So it's a bit of Iliotibial band syndrome, he beat that bit of my leg good and proper and I am not going to lie, it really hurt.
I am pretty depressed about it, I have to half my running for the next two weeks and I have to stop if I am in pain. Which is most of the time.
Before the appointment I tried to run 8k and I could only run in 200m bursts before having to walk. I felt pretty sorry for myself and burst into tears in front of some ducks. Ducks are not sensitive to emotions - I learnt that today.
I am not going to let this beat me god damn it, I am going to do my stretches and more yoga like a good girl. Dr Clark says I will be able to catch up on the training in the last 6 weeks. So I might be down but I am not out.
All hopes of beating Kath now will have to be abandoned. I just want to make it round the course.
Dear running, I thought I hated you but now I just miss you.
