Not Running Today ...

I woke up this morning at 5:30 ... as in morning ... to get a quick run in before Jason went to work. I dressed to my shoes and headed downstairs for a bowl of oatmeal. I was enjoying my morning cup of coffee and getting some things done around the house when I noticed that I was already having shin pains. I think I made the wise decision when I cancelled my run for the day. I didn't see any reason this early in my training schedule to push it. Besides, I still don't even know what I'm training for ...

I made use of the early morning hours to get a pilates workout in. That was hard, my abs were still sore from my last pilates workout. I look forward to the day when pilates is old hat and it no longer causes me to be sore.

On the Pain Front ... hip is sore, shins didn't get any sorer, neck is stiff ... knee is feeling funky going up and down the steps.

when my shins hurt i remember you saying you had shin splints and they just went away after a while!
i really do follow in your footsteps!

have you looked into a running club yet? in the bigger cities sounds like they have wkly long runs planned. oftentimes w/ REFRESHMENTS out on the way! cool! take advantage of that!

Good luck with keeping all the pains at bay. Take it slow and everything will work itself out.
