A tough decision for me ..

It’s been a crazy month for me with my training for all my runs especially the upcoming TNF50, If you guys didn’t know I sprained the sole of my foot on my regular weekend training three weeks ago. I feel terrible and I feel depressed to be honest.

I don’t wish for any athlete to be injured especially those who is full of energy or those that needs to pent out their frustration and focus on their training.
I am a good mix of both. When your reading this a good amount of people is already sleeping and getting ready for the Army Half Marathon. I have made a resolution to run a 1hr50min half marathon before the year ends. (looks like that is not going to happen for me this year)

I have considered long and hard so I went out for a real run to test my foots injury yesterday, I could still run a 5min pace but not for long cause of my injury and no training for three weeks. This morning I woke up limping again so I have decided to forgo this dream of 1hr 50min, its been really hard for me, but I am just praying that it will heal fast for the event that I am aiming for which is the Singapore Triathlon in 2 weeks time.

My training has been only swim and bike.. no runs. but this decision is true for me for I have thought for the longest time.

My doctor cleared me, and I tried to run.. the pain is just terrible, not everyone will understand how I feel.. but as I say

I am sorry this post is not that motivating or even funny to end with .. I promise I will be back.

Train Hard, Race Harder

  1. I definitely understand. I have messed around for years with Plantar Fasciitis so painful I could only shuffle through the house when I first woke, stabbing pain in my heel with each step. It finally got better and I had 6 great months…and messed up my hamstring. I’m biking and swimming, and I’m getting better, but it can be so very frustrating and, honestly, depressing. Hang in there!!

    • Love your words of encouragement… 6 months and you are really patient, well to be honest, I did do short runs but its always the same waking up the next day with that sharp pain feeling.

      Its usually me doing the motivating, but its nice to be motivated by others. really appreciate it.

  4. Sorry to hear about your injury bro, don’t worry you can always try again in the next Triathlon.. what you got to do right now is to recover fully and not to put more pressure into your injury.. 🙂

  5. O, Isaac, I’m so sorry to read this….but you are doing the right thing by not stressing it. Been there, didn’t do that…and paid the price…for years. You take care of yourself…if I was there I would make you some miso soup with udon… Keep up the cross training, and good luck with the recovery!

    • OoOooHhhhh… Miso and Udon maybe with some Almond butter and Jelly would soothe the pain and ache. LoL
      your so sweet. Thank you for the suggestion.

      The only thing I can do now is swim or bike that wont have a direct impact on my feet.

      Thanks again. Cheers
