I'm going through a bad patch and need some words of wisdom etc..
I am recovering from Achilles tendonitis and it has been going pretty well, but work is getting really stressful and I keep skipping training sessions (i'm training for a half marathon on Sept 6th). When I get home from work I just slump on the sofa, try to ignore the screaming children and stay there all night feeling sorry for myself, trying to talk myself into going for a run.
The weather isn't helping but I could easily get on the treadmill if I could be bothered.
I'm a teacher so break up for the hols next week and intend doing lots of cross-training to try and build up my fitness base without putting extra pressure on my poor achilles. But I will probably do sod all.
When will I snap out of this? What should I do?
I'm only up to 8 miles on my long run and I'm worried I wont be up to the distance by September 6th and will get myself injured again.
