Today's run = big fat FAIL.
I hurt so bad by the end of set 2 (around the 1 mile mark) that I decided to call it quits. Sadly it was a mile back home. Bentley and I did two more sets before we made it back to the driveway.
As I started running for each set everything felt good. About 1:30 into each set is when things started to hurt. I was huffing and puffing so bad by the end of my 3:00 run that my walk was practically a crawl. That 2:00 walk/crawl rest my drive and I kept pushing until we were back at my street and I couldn't do it any more. Total distance was about 2 miles.
I am currently on the sofa with my legs propped up and ice on my shins.
Ok...I know these are man shins...or the sins of a hairy woman....but the red spots are where my pain is. I'm e-mailing this photo to my PT friend in hopes that she will give me some advice...like if I should see a doctor or if I should keep icing/stretching/buy compression sleeves/buy new shoes. I would hate to by new shoes when my new ones are only 2 months old.
What do you think?
Suck it up and keep going?
