Blisters and « real » running injuries…

After my Monday post, I’ve seen some of you smiling and I guess you were thinking « If all the running injuries you’ve had are blisters then… well, you’re gifted or lucky… or you’ve never run! »

Well, I wished it was true (I mean I wish I was gifted). But my “running injuries” CV is not so empty…

  • 1994: periostitis (3 full months with no sport and I swore “No running again for me. Cycling is safer!”)
  • 2005: recurrent patellar tendinitis (6 full months with no running after my best and fastest season ever. Totally depressed)
  • 2006 winter: plantar fasciitis in my right foot (1 full month with no training)
  • 2007 summer: stress fracture in my right foot (3 full months with no running)
  • 2008 spring: muscle tear in my right calf (2 full months with no running)
  • 2008 summer: plantar fasciitis in my right foot (1 full month with no training)
  • 2009 spring: heel spur in my right foot (6 full months with no running)
  • 2011 spring: muscle tear in my right calf (3 full months with no running)
  • 2011 autumn: stress fracture in my left foot (3 full months with no running)
  • 2012: nothing… yet. Please my friends, pray for me and make it last!

The questions are: why do I keep trying to run? Why do I like this activity so much? Am I completely numb? Can’t I see that running doesn’t like me anymore?
