Runnin’ no more?!

scanEven though I was beginning to feel the benefits of my summer training during the split sessions I started four weeks ago, my knee tendinitis struck again during the first series of 1000 meters at 3:30… Following the advice of my fellow Insee Paris Club runners, I then stopped the training and gave up the idea of running Argentan this year. I also checked with a sport doctor to understand about those repeated tendinitis and he diagnosed a sciatica and a lower spine disc protusion, confirmed by a scan… Although it seems to be highly frequent with runners, this is a major bummer, obviously, because I do not know how long this is going to take to heal and whether or not I will be able to do long distance runs any more.
