|Some of the Thursday morning track group go through their|
paces in the pre-dawn gloom.
Of course, no runner escapes injury if their career lasts long enough, and there's always someone struggling with a new injury or coming back from an injury. I try to offer relevant advice and some encouragement, but everybody is different and nobody, including doctors, is infallible in diagnosing injuries or prescribing the correct treatment. Runners have to learn to deal with uncertainty, and often disappointment.
If my planned 5km jog tomorrow morning is pain-free, or near enough, then I hope to return to my marathon training program. Of course, it may not be that straight forward, but I am an optimist.
