Week 11: Session 2, another failed run

I haven't run since Monday, my right shin has been really bugging me and I decided to give my legs a rest. 
Today was supposed to be a run day, my legs felt better BUT not 100%. 
On the treadmill I went,  warmed up for 5minutes, ran for 10minutes and then had to call it quits... I was in pain, not intense pain but the kind of pain that I didn't think I should be running in. 
I hopped on the bike and was on there for 10minutes before heading back on the treadmill. Walked for 10minutes and thought that the leg felt really good so I gave running another try ... NOPE still in pain. 
This really sucks!! I think I could have gotten a really good run in today. I was looking forward to it, actually craving it.
I'm mad... that I've come this far, was doing so well and now this. It's frustrating!! 
SO the plan is to rest Friday and Saturday and then run On Sunday.
Starting week 11 over on Sunday means that I wont be finishing my 13wk walk/run Program before my 5k race in 3 weeks!! 
I don't want to make a big deal out of it yet, let's see how Sunday goes and then I will go from there. 
Keeping my fingers crossed that this is nothing and I get back to running in no time. 

On Sunday at the Grocery Store, these Bars caught my eye and I just had to try them... PUMPKIN PIE, yes please! 

I'm not a big granola bar person, I always find them too sweet and I would rather just have a piece of Fruit but was so looking forward to having this one since I LOVE Pumpkin Pie and I really like Kashi Cereal. 

The Bar had a layer of an Pumpkin pie like icing on top... and looked delish. 
I really wanted to love it ... but I have to say I was disappointed. It was really sweet, too sweet for me. I didn't enjoy it at all, I wished I would have picked the Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola Bar instead. OH well, I'll just take it into the office I'm sure the co-workers will love these.

I may have to try that Kashi bar. I love pumpkin pie and I love sweet. Sorry about your running. I feel your pain.
