Well Crap in a Hat!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I have shin splints. Awesome. T.T

I swear I have the worst luck. lol!

Earlier today, I decided to go for a walk/run around the beach park down the road from where I live. Unfortunately, I got not more than 15 seconds in the running portion and my shin bones were screaming. By the time I got to the pavilions to rest up, I was practically in tears. I think all of this really started up after that 25 minute run I did on the treadmill at my gym. I felt so awesome managing to run that long, but I busted my ankle afterwards and possibly my legs.

I have this cruddy tendency to over do things without realizing it until after the fact. ._. So I'm taking an active step to tone it down and just stick to cardio that's light on my legs and harder on my upper body.

Let's just pray that everything heals up before March 9th. I signed up for the McGuire's 5k run, and there's no way I'm going to miss that. O.O

    What is this - the most dangerous time of the year? These days I'm just leaving "get well soon" comments all over...
I'm really sorry you got injured. Just take it slowly now, let everything heal, and really don't overdo with the workouts then. emoticon
