I came into this morning feeling really confident that I would be able to crank out some good mileage with no pain. Thanks to some nice treadmill running on my cruise I had some good postitive vibes about my leg.  Then first day of xc I get out towards the dirt mile and the same pains came circling back. I do not understand how I can run fine on a treadmill but be hurting on a dirt trail. I might have to see a doctor so I can figure out whats up. I want to have a healthy xc season so I can help the kids!

So I am thinking I need to shake out my legs every morning before running with the team. My body is going through pains and soreness I have never experienced. It's all about adjusting and learning. I felt pretty good (decent) playing ultimate and capture the flag, which was a huge surprise.

PM: Ran with Metler and Marieta on the Loop. Got covered in bugs and could only go about 3 miles. No injury pain still. Good signs but I am not getting cocky yet. I am looking forward to running in the afternoons with Metler, even if its only for a mile or two.  3.02 miles

I mentally prepared myself last night for Sandhill. Then once I got out on it my back seized up and calves were super tight. I let myself get behind. Then I had to tell myself to stop being a baby and look for people catch and help. I tried to help Jenna as we got to the top. I ran 16:48 up which was better than last week. I thought I would crush it on the downhill but I felt nauseated (like last week).

I ditched Marieta and her family on an atv ride to get my run in.  Ran from the Pink Cliffs outlook. Mainly downhill with some good rolling hills. I scared about 100+ cows. They kept running parallel with me. I'm not sure why they didn't let me pass and then they could chill. 10.7 miles

I was really struggling with my calf this morning. I couldn't do the warm ups (butt kickers, scott kicks) without some intense pain.  I am going to ice and take some time off.  The crew had a really good workout where they were unified so I can at least be excited about that.

AM: Well I got out and jogged around this morning.  I am beyond frustrated with whatever nagging pain this is.  I am guessing its shin splints but only in my left leg.  I could run probably run a couple of miles on it but it doesn't feel right. The worst part is that I don't get to train with the crew on the team.  Missing out on some fun coaching opportunites! 1.95 miles

PM: Ran in pain with D’Amore, then a bigger group and finished with Bentley. 2.54 miles

I didn't run this morning to give my leg more of a recovery.  It still felt pretty terrible on the afternoon run but it was somewhat manageable?  I don't know this injury crap is all pretty new to me.  I wonder if I just keep running in pain if the injury will magically go away.  Ice and rest are going to be my best friends for a little bit. 3.56 miles

PM2: *Ended up biking around on one of the LiveWell bikes as Aaron Metler ran.  I was bored while Marieta was at practice and Aaron was doing his normal 6 mile loop and I decided to join him. A Larsen guy joined us as well, forgot his first name.  Wish I could run!

My legs were hammered. I decided to play the conservative route and just go slower and less miles. Maybe the universe didn't want me to do that because I got hit by an old bag driving a truck.  We made eye contact, and I am pretty sure she motioned for me to run through.  Then as soon as I ran in front of her she accelerated and I had to put out my hands and stiff arm her truck (Zac Zabriskie style). I threw up my arms and said "what the heck?" Then continued on my way. 3 miles

It takes my legs a little bit to get going so I struggled along behind the crew. I figured they would be doing an out and back so I would catch them on their way back. I never saw them again. I did my own loop through Green Springs I mixed in some fartleks. 1 minute with 4 recovery, 1 minute with 3 recovery, 1 minute with 2 recovery, and 1 minute with 1 recovery. I did this twice.
