Feh!

Turns out I have a ligament injury that has now been referred to a physical therapist. Excuse me while I scream.

When the PT place calls back, I'll book my appointments and take it from there. In the meantime I'm starting to think that there is something cosmically linked to me running 6 miles in a stretch.

Just when I was comfortable doing that last year, bronchitis laid me low for over a month. I get to that point again - turned ankle during a 5 mile race. Recover from that, up to a decent mileage again, another turned ankle this time with ligament damage.

I have come to truly love running and I'm wondering what I did to mess with the cosmic order to have to keep fighting these obstacles.

For what it's worth, I think all runners encounter injury at some time or other and it's the ultimate frustration when it happens. I'm thinking that you are hooked which is why you are feeling this way and that you will definitely go back to it when you are healed. Hang in there and do what you need to do to get better.

I'm just recovering from a fever myself if that makes you feel better! I think every runner goes through that phase but it will only make us stronger at least mentally if not physically.
