Day 13 - Worried
So, I don't know what's going on with me. If I don't take 400-600mg of ibuprofen every 6 hours, the pain in my legs (and now wrists and arms) comes back. I also have a killer sore throat. My sister is leaning more towards a virus/illness than a running-related injury. At this point, I'd have to agree. It was nice having a day off from running yesterday. I loaded up on ibuprofen last night before bed, slept great and then was able to get in my 3 mile run this morning. I decided to see if maybe I was through the worst, but as I write this, I can feel the lactic acid returning to my muscles in my legs. The pain seems to be spreading each day.... It's just so bizarre. That said, I felt decent during my run today. I didn't really push myself, I just wanted to get it done. I had contemplated not running at all, so I was just glad to get out and do it. I really, really hope I'm not getting sick, because that would mean that just about the time we leave for vacation, my kids will come down with it. Lovely. Anyway, I'm trying not to get too far ahead of myself and just take it day by day. In good news....one of my lovely "bloggy friends" Mel is hosting another great giveaway. The t-shirts and items at Remanents are just too cool. You can find her awesome blog HERE. I love my bloggy world!
