Message: ...sucks.
I started the pre-season with a heel tendonitis injury. Spend 2 months nursing that back to health. Once that was dealt with, I managed to get in 3 months of great training for my 1st open marathon. Where upon I developed bronchitis 10 days before the race and DNS'd. Now that THAT is clearing up, my heel is playing up again, and we're 3 weeks out from a HIM.
I expect I'll get a load of replies regarding "over training" etc, but this is the LEAST training I've done in the last 5 years. Sometimes it just happens, and sometimes it just sucks.

I wonder what else 2012 will throw at me.

Chin up and all that!! (So that it has a clear shot at me for the next blow!)

I'm just ranting. Not really that down. Just frustrated. I know there are plenty of people out there with far worse issues than this.

Message: I agree - you can have the best plan ever and sometimes shit just happens. That sucks.

Well, now you will just have more sexy time in your new aero helmet complete with a custom paint job.

Message: Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. The problem with getting older (yes, you're just a few years behind me) is that the body just doesn't recover like it use to. Give yourself some slack and know that it will come together. It's the challenges that make you stronger.

Message: Be patient. It took me just under three years to comeback from illness, surgeries and complications. Had to eat a few pricey race fees, which you may have to consider in the short run. It does suck out loud James T, but the healthy comeback race is well worth it... and I vented and ranted here more than once. We'll listen dude.
