False Alarm?

Have not been running much this week. Did a slow jog for about 45 minutes on Tuesday and another 20 minutes this morning. Very worry now how I am going to dip below 1:10 in the upcoming 15km PACM Run in 17 days. The hilly course is really a daunting thought!

After my trip back from Ipoh on 2 May, the usual uncomfortable pain at the archilles tendon was surprising "disappeared" even though the swell was there. I was expecting something positive to come by. Then after the Tuesday work-out, the pain wasn't there. I secretly told Wai Mun that my unwanted "guest" might have gone for good.

However, I could feel a slight pain at the spot right now. Sigh! Please leave me alone, my dear "guest".

Please tell me what I can do now - to train or not to train? By the way, the evening rain doesn't help either!

Avoid track work. Dont run the risk of injuring your guest again or else another 6 mths layoff. Lay low until 15k race day. Jog for the rest just to maintain cardio fitness. Sacrifice a bit of speed.

You're right, Dr Carbo. That's exactly what I'm doing now - just slow jog for 20-30 minutes. Apply ice/aloe vera after that. Planning to skip track totally. Will miss the gang there...huh, huh, huh.

Thanks for your advice.
