THINGS FALL APART TODAY......THE WHEELS LITERALLY CAME OFF!
By Tinu Ogundari, 16 May 2012 –
Today went to pieces after a promising start from mile 6, the ankle injury from yesterday flared up and i could not run much on it and how to power walk for 10 miles: during this walking i called Chris to get some support and advice and he said just one step at a time, i will get there and eventually down the line i will be able to run! but with that pain, there was no way that was going to happen, but kept the faith and believe.
saw Aly who actually reminded me to take some painkillers and i did from about 14 miles and the pain was lessen a little bit and surprise surprise i was able to run for half a mile at a time, and then rest and then do it again!
but towards the last 4 miles, i just walked the whole way back and called my family and friends during that time to take my mind off the pain beacuse it was so much, ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
returned back 8.15 hours almost an hour on yesterday's time, but another one in the bag, i dont care if i have to walk that is what i am going to do to complete this challenge one day at a time!!!!
the leg/ankle feels better again and thanks to the body rehab team, that are soooo amazing, i will be getting some treatment in the morning before i set off which will be the first time in the morning!
thanks all my fellow runners that caught up with me during the race, for hugs and moral support, that means so much.
dont know what tomorrow brings but i will be on that start line tomorrow by the grace of God.
Thanks for reading :-)
