^ I missed the peak part of my competitive season so yeah, I probably have pushed too much too soon hoping I could salvage something in terms of late season cross-country races. I plan on making a physio appointment when I have a free day next week and I expect to hear that I need to switch back to low-impact training. I could live with that, just not total down time `cause I find I need physical activity to keep myself sane.
It's only a temporary measure until your injuries get better. Rather that than doing further damage to yourself and putting yourself out of action even longer and potentially doing long term damage to yourself.
Oh, you`re completely right on that. I know. I just hate taking time off, even when it`s for the best. I am holding off on running until I get a professional opinion next week, though. Best to take the safe route, like it or not.
