I Take That Back

Ok never mind.  It still hurts.  :(  Boo
I still haven't run.  I will try it again on Friday and see how it goes.  If there is too much pain then I will be off to the doctor.  I am glad it has been rainy and cold here the last two days.  I don't feel too bad about not being able to run.  I miss my stress relief though.  My poor kids and husband have been taking the brunt of it.  I hope, for they're sake, I get back to running soon.

Feeling Better

The shin and ankle have been feeling a bit better the last two days, but I am still going to wait at least one more day before I run.  Tomorrow I will go out and try out a two mile run and see how I feel.  I am hopeful (gotta believe in the power of positive thinking) that all will be good tomorrow!

I will keep you posted!

Feeling Bad.

Last weekend I did an 8 mile long run.  It was the farthest I have ever run before!!!!  I was quite proud of myself.  It did take me forever though, it was very windy and there were lots of hills.  I have to start going the other direction on the trail now so I can avoid all those hills.  It was a nice route though, it goes through pine woods that are nice and shady.  Perfect for the hot days! 

I also had some pain in my right leg and ankle too, so I walked a lot of it.  I didn't want to cause an injury.  I ran a couple of times since then and the pain is still there.  I have a 9 mile long run scheduled tomorrow but I think I need to skip it.  I am sure I need to take a little time off.  I was thinking about using the bike and the eliptical for a few days and then go out for a short run on Tuesday and see how it feels.  Hopefully it is gone buy then.  Next weekend I have a 10 mile long run.  If the pain is gome by then, do I just go ahead and do the 10 miler even though I skipped the 9?  What else can I do to make the ankle feel better?  What would you do?
