I am really bagged from being back at work again and from not sleeping well at night but I absolutely forced myself to try running again before dinner. I did 1km run, .5 walk, and another 1k run before my calf started hurting (similar to when I had shin splints) so I packed it in. By that point, my brain felt like running lots but my body was hurting in several places.... I'm glad I did the 2k anyway.

I really gotta go find a physiotherapist. My right hip/lower back/glute(?) is very tender and I can barely walk when I first get up in the morning. It doesn't hurt at all when I bike and only a tad when I run. Just when I sleep. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

I have no idea what it is and it hurts in several different places but I'm assuming it's all related since it's all in the same general area...

Hmm, haven't done much this week in the way of runs. I've been busy at work and home with the basement, but my swim class started and The Boy and I have been running to and from class, which is really nice. It's only 1.15 miles each way, so it's not enough to tire us out, but we do about a 9 min/mile pace on the way there and then a slower 10/11 mi/mile on the way home. It's rather nice to run in the dark, it's all sidewalk to get there (only problem, ow knees) and we hold a headlamp in our hands on the really dark portions to keep from tripping over buckled sidewalk or treacherous fallen acorns (!)

Only problem is I've been having some pain issues too.

It seems like it came out of nowhere, this week every time I run I get a sore feeling in my right calf and some pain behind my shin. I think/know it's time for new shoes, but the pain is really upsetting me. I've implemented a few minutes of wall-sits to strengthen my muscles (read somewhere it could help with shin pain) but I think if I went and did a longer run it would warm up more, maybe just the shorter runs aren't allowing my muscles to fully stretch out.

Did a quick 3 mile run with DD while I was making dinner the other night. I didn't think I'd get a run in, but as I was cooking dinner I got to the part in the recipe that said "and let simmer for 40 mintes." So I ran down stairs, threw on running clothes, whipped DD out the door and into the jogger and we were off! And the minestroni turned out really well too.

This morning I dragged myself out of bed and did a fast 5k. Tonight is weight training for 30 to 40 minutes.

Saturday I really need to do a long run, at least 6 miles. I've been in a slump the last two weeks and have kept my distances down at only 3 to 4 miles.

I'm impressed! It would've taken me 20 minutes just to get my son ready and out the door when he was that age.

I did a 2-mile easy tempo run before work. It was absolutely beautiful this morning - temps in the low 60's, no wind. Long(er) run this weekend. Still easing back into the miles. Probably bike to work tomorrow - maybe a ride this weekend, too.

On tuesday I did a 4ish mile run and it hurt! Maybe it was too soon after the tri (was on sunday) and it took about 2 miles to get comfortable. I had about 1/2 mile window where I was good then everything hurt again

I saw my PT this morning and she said not to run again before my next tri, which is on sunday. After sunday, she said not to run for 1-2 weeks. Normally I'm ok with being told to be lazy but I just pictured the fat cells celebrating. She then said I could run 1-2 miles but no more and to go very easy.

That is that

Was going to do 3-4 miles today but I'll ride instead.

Hi All,

I did a nice brick on Wed and 45 mins of rainy, muddy trail running this morning. Nothing spectacular....looking forward to some crispy weather.

Arrrrrgh!

I have strained my left quad last night and it hurt like hell. Now it's better (thanks to two Advils, ice-cold shower and taking it easy) but I'm not riding today and my running tomorrow will be limited, to say the least.

I combined all the ingredients for a muscle strain: since back-to-school I have increased volume by quite a bit, and ran a lot downhill and uphill (not that I really have a choice around here). Then on yesterday's specific run I was with a bunch a friend on a speedwork session. Every week we have a different person deciding on the speedwork "pattern" but I think we had a miscommunication with the guy who did it yesterday. We had only 1 km warm up and then he took off for a 1-km interval at pretty high effort. There's a very slight downhill on the way and there it happened: ouch! I stopped dead in my tracks. Good thing, as there was another girl behind me who was struggling, so I talked her into doing our own thing (very light intervals and lots of walking) and going home a lot earlier than planned.

That sucks. But I guess that's a good warning.
