More pain… Shins this time.

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

I’m very frustrated at the moment.

After my successful 5 miles on Thursday I thought I’d take a couple of days off (which I did) – had a few drinks on Saturday so didn’t feel up to it on Sunday either and besides my shins and thigh felt a bit tender to touch still.

Monday night arrives and I decide to do three miles but wasn’t able to… my shins were hurting during an uphill bit and I had to stop – not even completing a mile. So, back to the car I walked a bit and then ran a bit and then walked a bit so I ended up with 1.5 miles (ish)

I guess my legs didn’t like the sudden leap to 5 miles which is a shame as they seemed to be enjoying it at the time.

This is problem number three so far: knee, hip, shin. Knee had me out (resting it) for two weeks while the hip problem had me out for 3! I’ve only been running since 14th April and been able to run for just two months out of three.

It’s a shame but I guess it’s to be expected with a job where you sit in a chair all day, 4/5 years of practically no exercise and the extra weight: my legs are weak!

I’m hoping they’ll be okay tomorrow but I guess I should just wait until there’s no pain when prodding them.

Hip hip okay! I begin again…

Went out for my first run since my hip problems tonight. I’ve been meaning to since Thursday last week but had a bbq. weekend at my parents up north and poor time management the past couple of nights. (“I’ll go in the morning instead.. it’s too late now” – get up at 6am? as if!)

I was blowing a bit even after starting off slowly and completed 2.1 miles in 20 mins /4 secs.

The important thing is my hip feels alright… woohoo!

Not bad, will have a day of rest tomorrow and then back on it friday evening.
