Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
It finally happend. Not breaking 4, but f ing up my achille so badly that I cannot even run right now. Yesterday at practice I could not even warm up. I cannot even put pressure on my achilles. Walking up the stairs hurt. I can walk around school, but I have to roll my foot a specific way to take pressure on a particular part of my foot.
My girlfriend's mom gave me an allovera(spelling) plant yesterday, and she told me to cut it in half and let the gel rest on the achilles. I did so last night, and it does feel better, but this just may be the fact that I did not run yesterday
I plan on taking a couple of days off. Racing this weekend is a no no...even if my coach says so. Looking after my best interests is what I need to do because this will ultimately look after the team's best interest when we go compete outdoors. who cares about the indoor season.
I just do not want to f my achilles so badly that I will be out of competition for the entire season.
So, does anyone have any ideas of good cross training methods. yesterday I went to the gym and lifted like hell. Mostly out of anger, but also because I wanted to get some kind of workout.
I remember in Sub4 when Alan was lifting beastly, and when he got back to the track everyone noticed a huge difference in his shape and size. I do not want to get that big because...well I probably dont have that much time, and I would rather stay lean.
Thanks everyone for giving me advise; I was ignorant and oblivious of the consequences on running on an injury.
Good running and train smart.
