oh, yes! oh, no!

it's indeed patellar tendinitis (thanks, dr. runnersworld, for the advance diagnosis). so i definitely won't be running that 10k in two weeks. quote from my doc this morning "if you stop running now, take it easy over the winter months, and slowly build your training up again, you'll be able to really enjoy your running again come spring."

for now: ice, massage, stretching, cross-training. maybe a patella strap in a few weeks, when i slowly start running again. and maybe, just maybe, that 5k in five.

still: fuck.

[just got myself an appointment with a new trainer at my gym for wednesday after work. need to figure out new stuff to do. i need a plan.]
