Ok, this is a whiny post but I'll try and keep it brief. Over the weekend I pulled a calf muscle again; the same one I did in August. What's frustrating is I posted last week about how I had a plan with speed work and now I'm injured again.
I'm hoping to lay low for two weeks and still run the Women's Half Marathon in two weeks. I know it's a risk to run it and make it worse during the race. I have two weeks to decide what to do.
This leads me to the question Am I meant to be a runner? I've had various injuries off and on this year and am wondering if I'm really not meant to be a runner. Maybe I need to run only 2-3 days a week and make biking or something else more prominent than the running. I could try yoga and at home DVD's. I know there are lots of options and I can explore them. I'm not sure what to do and I know there isn't an answer to the question.
Do you ever feel like maybe you just aren't meant to be a runner?
