Injury - Another Brick Wall

This year and the last will be etched in my biography as the years with the most arduous and testing of times. My persistence and determination has been subjected to endless tests from all fronts. In personal and professional life, its been a test for survival of the fittest.

Now, it's time for health related challenges. Since more than a week now, I've been suffering from a severe knee problem due to a lateral-collateral ligament strain on my left knee. The pain-killer (Voveran) tablets has resulted in severe gastritis. I've always been allergic to voveran.

The result of this has been pretty intolerable to me - ruptured my Singapore Marathon training plan. I've been forced to stop hitting the asphalt ever since more than a week now. Not able to control the itch, I rushed to the road a couple of days ago. It only aggravated things. My knee now needs a rest for a minimum of 10 more days.

Well, the reason for the injury is not something I really want to talk about at this point. But one thing I want to tell you is - Never Give Up!
Life is an ocean and we are windsurfers sailing towards our chosen destinations. The winds are high and can pretty much take control of you. But you got to stick to the plan. Fight the winds like the firefighters do with fire. As long as you are clear with what you want to do, Challenges are mere Brick Walls which just test how badly you want to do it"

As the words go..
When the going gets tough, the tough get going

Just keep pushing...Never Give Up!
