I really dislike telling non-runners when I have a running injury, because they automatically assume running is bad for me. Yes, runners often get injured, but as this article points out, runners are often pushing their limits. I'm much more likely to be injured than someone who is sitting on their rump all day. Not unlike the hip problems I've had, this sore knee is a result of pushing myself. The question is, will sixteen days of rest be enough to get over it? Will I race anyway (probably)? Will I finish (I hope so)? Have you had overuse injuries? How did you get over them? How long did it take?
