Bad news on top of mega drama and just general depression from being overworked and burnt out.
I am burnt out - I guess I am going to get real personal and honest with this:
This weekend on Sunday I will be competing in the State meet for Pentathlon and then the following Saturday is the rest of the state meet when we have the 4x400m relay and all individual events. Well I am just tired. In the 4x400m relay we have to run a 4:10.45 to go to the "BIG" meet (which is the following week and also Spring Break) and right now our best time is 4:12.5. Well I want to run that time and all that but at the same time I want a break, I want to go on vacation for break and relax.
If we don't make it I will hopefully be going to Florida with B-Rabbit and visiting some of his family. I could really use the time off - I don't want to be a total complainer but lately I have been feeling like I need to get away.
So there is that news - now on to the possibly worse news
Saturday I ran on the indoor track like I mentioned and had hip pain. I did hurdles yesterday and had similar pain but not too bad. Today I felt the pain again during warm ups and then during cool down.
I found this website because the pain has gotten worse this evening - The injured Runner - and so I went on it and looked up what exactly might be the cause of my pain. Well from the website it looks like I have a hip flexor strain! I have a light day tomorrow (just biking and lifting) so I am hoping that it will feel better and I will be going to the trainers to see what they say.
I am really bummed out because this could mean that I get pulled from competition : (
I will just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow but I am really have trouble being patient!!
