Praying for healing. I'm sorry you are going through this
I'm really sorry. Such a sucky feeling - but I have high hopes that you'll be able to make it through. I'm certainly no expert, but you might want to switch from Aleve to Tylenol. Nsaids are not supposed to mix well with running. I know you're a nurse, so you're probably much better versed in drug interactions than I am. Do a google search and see what you come up with. I know that Runners World has done several articles & even the WDW marathon weekend program advises against it. Just thought I'd put in my two cents!
FYI - if, for some reason, you're not in feeling in tip-top shape next Sunday, but still want to do the race, you're more than welcome to join me at my slow-poke run/walk pace for the first 7.1 miles (I'm estimating a 12-13mm)! Other good news is that the max pace is very generous - you could easily walk the whole course if your leg isn't feeling up to it!
Have you thought about taping your leg? I am going to start taping for my shin splints. Just a thought
oh no, sure hope you're better by the time the race gets here! Just found your blog and LOVE it...I'm a newbie runner, so we'll see where it takes me here in Texas :)NEWEST FOLLOWER OF YOURS!!!Stop by my blogs if ya get a chance!http://letsmoveitmommas.blogspot.com
Hope you get better soon girl!
Thanks everyone! Jenny - I *may* take you up on that, depending how I feel...though I'm turtle slow too!
K. Just let me know yes/no and we'll figure something out!
I hate that for you. I know you have been working hard with your training. I too have been having leg issues. I am ready for RNR so I can let my leg rest for a week or two. Good luck!!!
Thanks for leaving me some love!
