I’ve been offline for the last several days with holiday activities… and some sulking related to worrying about a nascent injury. I ran Saturday and Sunday, about six miles each day, and felt a pulling sensation and soreness on the inside of my lower left leg. Yikes. Not another injury!
I took the last couple of days off and hoped whatever was going on down there would resolve. I also consulted Dr. Google a bit too obsessively and nearly convinced myself I have posterior tibialis, a form of tendinitis. Ugh.
I tried running again today in my more supportive shoes (Brooks Adrenalines, as opposed to the Mizuno Elixirs I usually wear on shorter runs). Fortunately, I experienced somewhat of a Christmas miracle and didn’t note a problem during my five miler. I am so relieved.
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you’re experiencing your own special happiness today and throughout the holiday season.
