So, there's been this "twinge." Since about WIBA. Maybe a few days before.

And it seems to be getting a little worse.

I'm a little worried. Well, actually, that's an understatement. Because I have access to Google. And as anyone who is a paranoid worrywart, knows...



Because from what my symptoms are in my shin, I might have something that rhymes with "schmtress frampture."

(I'm too afraid to type it)

Because the cure for that? Is no running. NONE. For 8 weeks, minimum.

Needless to say, this might make me lose my freaking mind.

I'm hoping that this is just a little bit in my head and a little bit of a sore muscle or something. But just to be safe, I decided not to race Sunday. I'll just volunteer and cheer on my girls...and that's it. I have a doctor's appointment on Monday just for some peace of mind. And I made sure the doctor was a runner. In fact, her credentials list her as an "avid athlete and marathoner." So, at the very least, she'll get it. And hopefully get me.

Gonna do some icing, swimming, and a little easy spinning in the meantime. And hold my breath.

And stay away from Google.

Hope it's not anything that rhymes with smess factor! Smart to lay off it for a few days anyway...

Oh Sara, I totally get it. I have this naging thing they want to keep calling a "lone dip" The dr told me NO RUNNING for 8 weeks, I told him to get a life. Thankfully he is my BFF's hubby. I have gone 2 weeks without running and am now beginning to think it feels better. I ran 2.5 almost pain free miles last night. Good luck!

I'll cross my fingers for you. A runner friend of mine just got something that rhymes with stress factors and he is one very unhappy guy as he had a marathon planned. Hoping yours will go away with a little ice and rest!
