Last year I ignored my hamstring pain and I ended up with months of physical therapy and even more months of regret. Not to mention the cost of therapy, medication, the registration fees I lost etc...
So although sometimes I feel like I'm being paranoid, out of an abundance of caution I saw my orthopedic surgeon this afternoon. Dr. T is my favorite Ortho Surgeon (granted he is the only one I've been to as a patient) and he is also a runner so he understands my running
So after a few x-rays...
Anterior Tibialis Tendonitis
No weight training on my legs (I can do other strength training stuff, just no weight machines etc)
Naproxen x 2 weeks
Follow up if no improvement after two weeks
Summary: I CAN RUN!!!!!!
Wednesday June 3rd is National Running Day so I'm going to wait until then to run. In the meantime I'm going to start the 30 day challenge for June...
(hopefully I can get through more than half the month this time)
After my appointment I rushed across town to spend the evening at Kai's Athletic Awards Banquet...
So proud of my baby girl!
Do you over think your aches and pains or do you ignore them?
Have you ever lost registration fees (or other race related investments) because of an injury?
Are you doing a 30 Day Challenge this month?
