I have been resting my leg.
So there has been no running since Thursday's 10minute attempt to run.
My shin still hurts especially going down stairs.
My calf is still sore.
Ice is my friend.
It sucks and I'm upset about it.
Yesterday I tried to sprint out of the rain and just couldn't, I felt a sharp pain on my shin and had to stop and hobbled the rest of the way.
Honestly I wanted to cry, not from the pain but from not being able to run.
I've come so far and now this... I know, I know it comes with the territory.
I'm doing so well on my training and in the 3 months since taking on running I've lost 15lbs, I feel great and love how my body is changing and becoming stronger.
Just the thought of having to stop running, makes me worried/scared.
It really didn't help that everywhere I looked I saw runners out, running in the rain and all I could think about is how badly I wanted to be them.
The plan for Monday is to see the Doctor just to make sure it's nothing serious and hopefully I can run after work.
Please check out Robin @ Running Circles Around the Turtles she wrote a great post on Disclosure and being aware of how much information you share on your blog/twitter about yourself and your running routes and running alone on trails.
I'm off to ice my shin... hope to have good news tomorrow.
