If ever I had to pick a week to NOT be running this was it. Here is a lovely sunrise near I was staying last week in China:
|Sunrise with PM2.5 in excess of 170ug/m^3|
|Late afternoon view from my hotel|
The impulse to "take control" and force the darned thing to heal - by massaging the heck out of it-- is very powerful (in me) but the reality is that I know from experience that these measures prolong the inflammation. It is now time for me to surrender to the process of healing. I'll post how it goes. My plan is to take a solid 4 week break...or until there is no pain when I pinch the tendon. Then re-start and ramp back up very gradually.
