45 minutes on the elliptical with resistance up 5. Saturday was not a good day as I got shut down after just a mile of running from my leg!!! I didn't post anything at the time cuz I was so ticked off that I just could even think! I tried to run today but I could feel the same thing comning on so I went to the elliptical and it seemed to do fine. no pain... This has to be the most frustrating injury that I have ever had, and if its compartmant syndrome then I will have to have it cut! I'm hoping that thats not the case but who knows at this point! I might do some more on the elliptical tonight as I didn't have enough time to really get a lot done this morning, but that will depend on the time that is available.

Later.

I ran 3 miles before my PT appointment and my pain level was at about a 3 or 4, went to the PT and he A-stymed me and then it felt pretty dang good so then he wanted me to run another mile so I did and it felt pretty good... He thinks  I need to go back to the doctor and have a MRI just to see what is going on, so I don't know what to do!!! I do have an appointment next week so I quess I'll have to go see what he thinks and then go from there. My PT wants me to still run and do the elliptical, he wants me to stay aggressive with things so we can see whats causing the pain rather than take a week of and then have it feeling better and then not getting to the bottom of it. So I quess that will be the plan, run when I can and if I can't then hit the elliptical.

See you tomorrow.

The old leg felt pretty good so I decided to head out this morning and the pain level was at 2 to 3 when I started and then it was at a 6 to 7 by the time I was finished. My average pace was 8:49 and a total time of 27:22,  I didn't wear my HR monitor so I have no info on that. It looks like I will not be able to get into the doctor until next wednesday so it will be one of two things, a pressure test for compartment syndrome or an MRI, I am leaning towards the MRI as I am not a fan of needles!!! He wants me to continue to be aggressive with my training, well as aggressive as it will let me, so that when I see him in a week it will still be flaring up. No strength training today as I am running out of time, I need to get up earlier so I can get back on track with that part of my training.

See ya tomorrow.

I decided to take the IBProphin before my run to see if it would lessen the pain and of course it did, it allowed me to go a little further and I could have keep going but the doctor said no more than 3 to 4 miles so I stuck to it. After the run  I did some good stretching and then some lower body workout and it felt okay for a change, i know the injury is still there and I could still fell it but I was able to get something done. My legs were tired from walking 18 holes of golf yesterday and my legs didn't bother me to swing and play so that is a good thing, I didn't play real well but that was only my second time out this year so it wasn't to bad (78), I had some missed Birdie putts and then some less than stellar chips. I will play some more this week and try and get it back to being respectable.

Later.

I ran out towards pretty little hill and then back to the house, pain level was at a 3  to 4 when I started and then by the time I was finished it was at a 1 to 2. It seemed to get better and better the further I went but I stopped at 5 as that was more than I should have gone. My average pace was 8:55 total time was 44:42. The second half of the run was faster then the first and I could feel my form coming back the longer the run went on so that is a good sign...  My legs were dead, not from running but I have come down with a cold and my energy level is pretty tapped out, it was fun for a change,  I'm glad I got her done!

See ya Monday.
