classic way that runners fake an injury. It's a pseudo-injury that afflicts lazy athletes who use it to get out of running practice. They tell their coach that they can't run because they have "tendinitis."
"I heard you have pretendinitis."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, you bs'ed your coach to get out of the long workout. You claimed that you had tendonitis, even though you're clearly fine and just pretending."
