I LOVE that!! I was really wanting to run today but I was still feeling shin pain in my left leg. It started yesterday early afternoon at the beach and the more we walked, even in sneakers, the more it bothered me. Mostly it was dull on the front of my shin, but at times it felt sharp. My fear of not being able to run the next day was actually causing me some distress and near the end of the night, even though I was having an awesome time, I felt like I couldn't get my compression socks on fast enough to get relief.
As I re-read that last sentence I can't believe those thoughts came out of my brain. I was worried about not being able to run the next day?!?! I was more concerned about potentially having to take another rest day than I was about the delicious Kohr's I was enjoying...?!?! I have officially lost my mind.
Note to self- remember that cross training is good for many reasons. That being said, I want at least 4 miles tomorrow after work- it is going to be a super stressful day and I am going to need the release. I will even tolerate a treadmill run. I am going to wear compression sleeves all day and hopefully my legs will still want to run after a long day of presenting aka standing in heels.
