After yesterdays run I started having the same pain in the same area of my leg where I was injured a couple of months ago, and as I am writing this the pain has not subsided. I know now that it is probably Shin Splints and not a stress fracture,  as the doctor said if it heals and then I have the same pain come back in the same area then it will rule it out ( the stress fracture). I don't know what to do, I am really down. I will Ice throughout the day to day and see if that helps and then see how it is on Monday... I felt pretty good yesterday other than my legs were dead tired and then as the day went on I could feel the pain starting to come on, and then my head started to hang because I know that pain well,  I delt with it for two long months. There is no mistaking it, the pain is the same as before, if anyone has any advise please feel free to enlighten me, I'll be sulking in the corner!!!!!!

Okay so this is really wierd, I decided to go and try just a short 2 mile run to see how my leg was feeling and I took some advice from Jeff and James and Andy on the blog and I just went nice and easy not pushing the pace. I also put my original insoles of my shoes in along with the soft soles that are already in there, that was Tom's little diddy, and I was amazed at how well it helped. I went in 2 mile intervals and ended up doing my regular 6 mile run but just slower than I usually do it, I paid attention to  my  form and tryed to run smooth, well atleast smooth for me... Total time was 53:13 with my average pace at 8:48, heart rate average was 139.  I am hoping that tomorrow I will wake up and the pain will be less than it was 2 days ago, because right now it feels like really good!!!

I just have to tell  myself nice and slow and leave the tempo work for later when I'm healthy, I think If I can do that I will be alright...

I will see you tomorrow and let you know how I do with tomorrows run and then go from there.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I slept in because of the late night of celebrations and then I waited for it to warm up in the teens and then I headed out...I ran the mini gu corner out and back, when I was headed to mini gu corner I ran into a herd of Elk, Ah the joys of running... There were some nice bulls in that herd and it was cool to just watch them for a minute, I wish my son Ethan was hear he would have went wild, I will have to take him tomorrow after school and see if they are still there.

Now back to my run,  it was just another easy day although I was alittle faster today than yesterday (I wasn't planning on that) but I just went with what felt comfortable... My average pace 8:43 with my heart rate average at 141, total time was 52:28. My leg felt really good, I don't know whats up with that but maybe I just over done it on Saturday and my calf muscle was alittle strained, becuase I felt great and I have no pain as I am writing this so thats a good sign. I was planning on doing some strength training today but I think I will take it easy the rest of the week, and then resume the strength training next week...

 

See ya tomorrow.

When I checked the tempature outside and it said 6 degrees I decided it would be a good idea to hit the treadmill this morning, I had a hard time simulating my pace when I am actually out on the road, but after some tinkering I was able to find a pace that was comfortable for me in regaurds to my heart rate and I went with that.  It averaged out to be about an 8:50 mile pace with a total time of 52:23, my leg felt good not much pain at all it would just get a little stiff as the run got  towards the end.

I hope it its warmer tomorrow morning than it was today, it was hard to stay focused on the treadmill, anything above 15 degrees and I'm good to go ouside so lets hope for some cloud cover or a warm front...

See ya Tomorrow.

I ran the Salem canal road to Payson loop, out and back. I just wanted to do a nice recovery run as I am still feeling pretty bad from my cold symptoms, and my body is pretty week with no energy at all!!! I actually felt better than I thought I would out there this morning, the temp was alot better 39 degrees according to my Iphone. My average pace was 9:11 with my heart rate average at 138, total time was 55:26. My leg felt pretty good today and taking Toms advice and running today even made me feel better with my cold... I will plan on doing atleast my usual 6 mile run tomorrow and if I feel better than I do today then I might tack on a couple of more, depending on how I feel and the time that I have available of course...

 

See ya Tomorrow.
