Phantom Pains : The Runners' Sickness
There's a new malady going around, but the odd thing is that it only seems to afflict runners. The funniest thing of all is that it strikes days prior to a run/race.
Its name? Phantom pain.
I have been a victim of it many times. Heading into Saturday's Pedernales Falls 60k, I thought I'd been cured. Lately, I've felt great!!!
...but I spoke too soon.
During yesterday's 10 miler, my lower back began aching. After the run, my achilles heel decided to join in on the fun.
I woke up today stiff & limping. WTF, is wrong with me??? Is it real??? Is it psychosomatic??? Am I not vaccinated against this illness???
