So, I’m back from my holiday in Cornwall. Rather unsurprisingly while I was away I found myself also having a little holiday from training and only managed one run. It was a great little route along the Camel Trial in Padstow and according to Strava I did a fairly decent pace (although I think Strava is a little generous with its distances).
Following last Sunday’s British 10K I was feeling pretty low about running this week. I know running conditions weren’t ideal but I was really disappointed with my time and my confidence took a bit of a bash. Despite all my training sessions going well I couldn’t really shake the negativity I was feeling about my running abilities.
So last time I posted a blog I’d just been to physio with an injury, and I am gutted to say that since then not a lot has happened – I still haven’t run. My ankle is still quite sore, and I have had another couple of sessions with my physio. He had suspicions it may be a stress fracture, but this is unlikely. Instead he thinks it much more probable that it is peroneal tendonitis. So I am prescribed with icing, immobilisation, rest, and stretching.
