Sometimes you’re in the middle of an intense training cycle and something feels off, but you don’t want to stop. Most of the time, deep down, you know better. This knowledge is hidden away in a dark place you don’t want to look, so you ignore it. Or maybe something goes wrong and you can’t figure out why, even though the answer is right in front of you. Pretty soon, however, you have a full-blown injury. Now you have to miss out on a lot.
This was recently the case with me.
