It’s a lot easier if I list them!
- Plantar fasciitis
- Metatarsal fractures
- Torn hamstring
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Multiple ankle sprains
- Avulsion fracture in my ankle
- Trapped sciatic nerve
- Medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)
- Morton’s neuroma
My first bad injury was the plantar fasciitis and it was at a period where I felt like I was running well and had a lot to give. That was very tough mentally, as it was hard watching everyone else still training and competing when I couldn’t. Going on from there, I’d get a few good months’ of training in and I’d had another setback, so it was difficult. As time has gone on I’m better able to deal with injuries now, and I appreciate and enjoy just being able to run more than anything else.
