The long run was not a good one yesterday. : (
My leg is back to hurting, badly. I tried to nap in the early afternoon and it just throbbed and throbbed. Anytime I'm in the car, I jack up the heated seats to relieve the burning pain in my rear-end.
I have no idea why it's happening again- at nearly the exact same time as last year! (To the WEEK almost...) Our runs have been fast. I've always read that long runs should be a good minute or two slower than race (marathon) pace. I don't think I've been sticking to that, per-say. They've been pretty fast long runs and short runs, if you ask me.
So. What do I do? It's not so bad that I need to go back to the doctor. Nor, is it bad enough for me to have to take some time off. I just don't want it to get to that point. I really don't. So, I refilled a prescription from last year to help with inflammation. And, I've got to slow it down some. And, maybe look into more strengthening and stretching exercises, too.
This is baffling. I had ZERO issues when training for the March marathon. I don't understand why this injury has decided to re-surface again....
