Back to the usual run/walk, then I re-tied the tomatoes (they had grown so much) and hauled 3 wheelbarrows of mulch for the roses and the vegetable beds. Whew! Stinky hot and sweaty. So glad I got it all done before the rains came. Rested then h... Read more

ran my 3.2 then mowed the front lawn and lower acre and planted more flowers. Now I'm so tired that I feel bad. What gives? Wondering if my thyroid is low or something. Just seems like I get more tired, more quickly than I used to. Hmmm. To... Read more

Walked a bit faster today and even tried about 3 steps of a run. Slight ouch. Not going there. I'm just going to give this time to heal completely and then make sure I stretch it out before running. Planning on heading out camping at the co... Read more

any ideas about shin pain?
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      4 comments

Last week, after working in the garden, I developed pain in my left shin. Hurts when I flex (pull my toes up) my foot. I'm thinking this must be a muscle or a tendon. Gets better with rest. The main soreness is about 3 inches above my foot. ... Read more
