I have had a bit of an Aha moment here at work.
(I know I should be thinking about work, but of course my mind is pre-occupied with running.)
My shin is still hurting and my legs are still just not 100% even after almost a week without running.
So....this is what I am thinking.....remember that marathon plan I showed you a few posts back?
Well here it is again....
Start from a marathon plan beginning. (I am going to do some research in to some other plans too, to make sure I am picking the correct one, that fits my schedule, etc...)
I don't know what my hurry is...I don't know why I am needing to rush things. I love running, I don't want to be hurt, I want to continue running injury free...and perhaps that means I just need to start over and get a good base. Start over with some good cross training mixed in. Start over with some good core mixed in. Start over using the exercises I learned from the ART guy. Just restart running completely.
I need to think about this more. But I think this is going to be my plan when I can start running again.
