"What?!?! No. No no no! I can't take time off!!!" I cried. I proceeded to do some internet research, and what I found wasn't good at all. Every single website told me that I need to back off on my mileage and rest for awhile.
I can't do that. I don't want to do that. Especially now, when I've started relying on running like a drug.
So now I'm sitting here, whimpering with an ice pack on my left leg. I'm not exactly sure what to do about this, but I do know that I'm going pray really, really hard for this injury to go away.
