I’ve hit my breaking point with this whole leg/thigh/groin/itb/whatever is going on with my leg thing. For a couple weeks now I haven’t been able to shake this pain, even alternating running days with non-running days. So in the interest of making sure I’m pain free for my runs leading up to Tecumseh, I’m taking as many days off as necessary until this pain goes away. I only wish I knew what was causing all this mess and if I need to stretch, not stretch or something entirely different. Ultimately, rest is best. I know this, but it takes a lot to get me to succumb to the advice, especially since in the past I’ve been able to run through it while whatever is nagging me eventually clears up. This time though, it just seems to wax and wane. Eh, such is the process of running. So until I’m back running again, which I suspect will be soon enough, it’s time to catch up on the rest of my life, meaning mow the yard, pull up the garden, work on some design projects, etc. etc. All the things I never have time to do when I’m out running.
Also, I’m being interviewed for a podcast by Organic Athlete tomorrow. I’ll try my best not to sound like a bumbling idiot, but that’s asking a lot. I’ll post the specifics as to where you can find the podcast once it’s all said and done. Thanks to OA for doing that.
Till then friends.
