So Wednesday I went out in the evening to go for a walk and decided to jog a little. It was just over a mile of jogging but it was a horrible decision. I knew something was off a few minutes after starting but I let my pride get the best of me and instead of calling my husband to come get me or just walking home, I ran the rest of the way. By the time I got home I was in tears and barely able to get up the stairs. My right tendon was swollen to the size of a golf ball and putting pressure on it was impossible.
Four days later and I can finally walk on it but just barely and only for a couple minutes at a time. It swells up after being on it and it hurts a ton. Best thing I can do is rest it, ice it and prop it up. Also ibuprofen has been my best friend the past few days.
I've had a real ego hit from this the last few days and knowing I am out of racing on the fourth of July it's killing me. Because I was in the middle of my training for my 10k in 4 weeks and won't be able to run for at least 3 or 4 more weeks I am not going to be able to run the 10k either. My pride and ego are basically broken right now and I have done nothing but cry and eat junk food.
Maybe I am being a big baby about not being able to race but I have put a lot into this and not being able to do it, is killing me.
