Went to the dr. today after several weeks of persisting and worsening pain. Yes, I made a poor decision (day after day) to run through the pain, do leg workouts through the pain, stairmaster though the pain. Regretting it deeply now.
Anyone ever had this injury? The dr. was very vague about how long it would take to heal (2 to 8 weeks seems like a HUGE span to me).
I'm so incredibly discouraged. I've been all but sidelined (still doing upper body workouts), even the bike aggravates my injury. I feel like there is no cardio I can do without hurting it, but I want to do cardio!!! Obviously I want my injury to heal though!
33.5 weeks until the half marathon I want to do, the training program I picked is 24 weeks, so I have a good amount of time to ensure rest, but I've built up so much cardio endurance in the past month and a half I don't want to lose it!!!
