Friday Thread: Dealing with a running injury?

Have you ever experienced an injury that forced you to lay off from running for a while? What did you do to come back healthy and strong, and in a place where your injury didn’t bother you anymore?

If you had to refrain from running for an extended period of time, what did you do to cope? How did you keep up your fitness in the meantime? How long did it take you to come back, and what sort of shape were you in when you did?

I’d love to know, as I’m dealing with my own injury right now, and my foot and ankle doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It’s frustrating. I know I’ll be okay, but like Tom Petty sang, “the waiting is the hardest part.”

What did you do to get through it? — Terrell
