what is the matter with me?
I have a brain that thrives on endorphins
a body that cannot sit still
A type AAA personality that does everything to the exteme
a stressful job that requires distraction
I LOVE training for something but it has to HURT
as a consequence I end up constantly injured
I've lost count of the increasingly bizarre and impossible to heal consequences of training I've managed to acquire....
shin splints 2006
lateral meniscus posterior horn tear 2007
metatarsalgia left foot 2007
central serous retinopathy x 4 from 2007
cellulitis right forearm (after a burn whilst cooking then falling onto burn in a pilates class) 2007
nerve palsy left hand from cycling needing steroid injection 2008
Bizarre hip injury 2008 needing steroid injection ?top of ITB insertion
shoulder niggles on and off 2009 from excessive swimming whilst waiting frim bits of the above to heal
Morton's neuroma (?) left foot 2009 appeared after GNR 2009 - awaiting Ultrasound
Smashed left knee on gate cycling 2009 - not right since; MRI'd today
Hanstring tendonitis/ tear 2010 whilst cycling
should I just listen to my genes.
I come from a family of sedentary couch potatoes.
Maybe there's an evolutionary reason for that and I should just give in now?
