This morning I headed out for my 2nd 14-miler. I had been having some pain in my inner thigh for a day or two, but it seemed to have subsided. I planned out a 4 mile loop to give things a try – after 4 miles things seemed fine. No pain. So I headed down to Riverview Park to get in 8 miles by the river and then finish things up with 2 miles coming back home, but then…
Mile 6. Stopped to take a GU. Mmm, chocolatey. I start running again and all is not well in inner-thigh-ville. I think, maybe I just need to re-warm up. Mile 6.5 I am by the side of the road, crying, and calling a cab.
:\ I can’t really walk that well right now so I’m in bed waiting for my dad to get here from MD and take me to the hospital.
I hope this won’t lay me up for long… I would hate to not be able to complete my marathon training. That said, I want to heal this the right way. If taking a few weeks off and maybe missing out on the National Marathon is what I need to do to get better, so be it. There will be other marathons; I’m still young.
But I would be crushed. :(
