Well, not really.  I'm currently suffering through shin splints (running related, and I'm pretty sure that I don't have a stress fracture) and hip pain (not running related; has to do with a genetic condition).  So I've taken the week off from running.  I'm doing a lot of swimming and cycling instead, both of which I really suck at.  I'll try to run a 20 on Saturday and then we'll go from there.


  1. Way to listen to your body. I'm sure you'll be on the road again before you know it.

  2. toe raisers! That is what we always did to combat shin splints!

  3. When I was in track during the Cretaceous Period, we walked on the outside edges of our feet, the inside edges, and finally our heels to prevent shin splints. If nothing else, these exercises had entertainment value. We looked pretty funny!
