Well, I must be in training again because I have an injury. My left heel is bruised. But something I find interesting about injuries in running is how they apply to our lives. Conventional wisdom (whatever that is) may tell us to stop running when something is injured, but running with an injury can actually benefit us in many ways. This is also true when we go through a trying time in our lives (an injury if you will). Those around us might say, "You need some time off", "You need to get away," or "You need to give up" whatever it is you are trying to accomplish, but the truth is:
1. "Running on an injury" can help us learn how to avoid future injuries.
2. "Running on an injury" can teach us about pain management and toughen us up.
3. "Running on an injury" gives us a chance to slow down and focus on our form.
I'm sure I could think of many other benefits. Maybe you can e-mail some suggestions or argue with me if you'd like.
