Recently, I've been dealing with several aches and pains. And for most of them, I stupidly ignored the pain. Until I developed calf pain. Because I knew this would affect my ability to train for the half marathon I plan on running.
So I went to physio and realized I'm in rough shape. I have a strain in my calf, lower back pain on my right side, serious pain over my rib (pulled muscle I think), I have recurring bicep pain, I used to have IT band issues and my neck and shoulder area is almost always tense.
I'm falling apart. Body part, by body part.
And yet, I find it incredibly hard to rest my body and not run or work out this week.
