Remember when I said that I was treating my shin pain by resting, icing it, and trying not to freak out?
That third part is not going well right now.
I have not been running since last Sunday. I'm planning on starting back with an easy, slow 3 mile run tomorrow. The leg hadn't hurt me in days, until...
(cue foreboding music)
Yesterday, I spent about 10 minutes playing soccer in the backyard with Jack. The leg started hurting almost immediately.
Crap in a hat, you guys.
I am still going to go through with my plan to go running tomorrow and see how I feel, and "if" it still hurts, I'll call my doctor.
That "if" is in quotes, because my sense of dread tells me it will be. That same dread tells me that this is a catlicking stress fracture and that it's a good thing I haven't registered for the trisko yet.
I'm really down.
