possibly a sign of over-doing things? the bodies immune system drops when under too heavy a training load.
Possibly, but by body is usually very good at telling me I've overdone things with knackered legs, ploddy 'getting the job done' runs and more than anything, a horrific spell of man flue. However none of these has occurred (yet).
I think this time it's simply quite bad luck. A dirty wound would get infected regardless of my fatigue and the fact that it's potentially the cause of my tendon pain is a wrong place/wrong time situation.
In any case, even if it was from overdoing things, I'll be getting a good rest now since I can't really see things getting better overnight.
Take it easy and have a great Christmas!
Shall do! Cheers Jon, same to you, hope you're enjoying Norway (very jealous)
