  1. RUN
    great EL Park 3.21 mi 00:27 08:32 pace

    Still avoiding hills so my leg won't hate me, and oh my gosh did this feel good!! Wore some old shoes today, just to see if my "newer" ones were part of the problem, and now I'm... read more

    Arrived at my favorite Parkville place, the Nature Sanctuary, excited to find that no other cars were in the parking lot... which meant I had the whole park to myself! I was looking forward to a pe... read more

  3. RUN
    blah EL park 2.19 mi 00:19 08:28 pace

    Just taking the leg for another test drive. A little too much discomfort (still...and again), so this one turned into a flop.

    great Around the Northland (KC) 22 mi 01:58 11.2mph pace

    It felt SO good to get out & get the legs burning a little, while my sweety is playing in a golf tournament. Set out without any definite plan or destination...just assumed I'd figure it o... read more

      Beautiful day to be outside exercising! Are those trails connected now? Seems like their master plan is taking forever!

    alright EL Park trail 3.15 mi 00:29 09:08 pace

    It's only 3 slow miles, but still my longest run in about 3 weeks. Just a little pain in the shin during the first mile, but then it stopped. Hoping this is the beginning of my return to train... read more

    Stationary bike at Beaver Creek 5 mi

    Just trying to burn some calories while resting the leg. Boring stuff, when I'd rather be outside enjoying the scenery and changing leaves.

  9. RUN

    The hubby & I met his parents at Beaver Creek, CO for the weekend. I wanted so badly to run outside on the trails or sidewalks, because it's SO beautiful there, but with all the hills/moun... read more

      Let it heal right, even if that means not running and doing cross training. I have seen many other runner's have to stop running for various medical issues and all have come back stronger than before.

      If you think you can run without doing more harm and you are comfortable with just finishing, then I'd run it, and you continue your streak of starting all your races. But the key is to stay healthy and not do any more damage. It's really a tough choice and I don't envy you at all.

      I can understand and been in that pitty party place as well!!! Take care of your body and make sure you are healthy and in a good place to race. If you have to change your goal, bow out, or whatever it may be will pay off in the long run. "Live to run another day" hate it and love that saying at the same time. I know exactly what that BQ goal feels like and anything that holds you back makes you "crazy". But you will appreciate it even more when it happens! Train smart Ann it will be worth it!

      You probably have a stress fracture. Let it rest for a few weeks. It sounds like exactly what I had. Mine was better in about 3 1/2 weeks. Most Dr's will tell you 4-6. You will not lose that much Ann. Good luck.

      Anyone who's been running for a long time knows you HAVE to at least get out and give it a go. So sorry you're still experiencing pain, hope you're on the road to recovery though.
