We know Haile Gebreselassie broke the marathon world record at 2008 Berlin Marathon but few runners know that the Ethiopian long distance runner arrived at the start line with a nagging running injury.
According to a BBC report “His achievement was all the more impressive given that his training had been interrupted by a calf injury.
“Two weeks ago I had a bit of a problem with my calf muscle, but I took a week off,” said Gebreselassie. “It gave me a few worries coming here, but I forgot about it as the race wore on.
When you suffer an injury, you should never over react.
