My leg pain got A LOT worse during this particular week...so much so that by Friday, I had to decide to take a week off from running to let me leg completely heal.

As of today, 10/28/10 it feels pretty good. I haven't ran all week and am hoping to get back into my training program on Saturday or Sunday.

Other BIG NEWS! I found the outfit I will wear for the half marathon.

Yes! BIG NEWS! I KNOW!

It was very exciting to buy it - it made the race all that more real.

I was really worried about what I was going to wear. A pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt isn't going to take me through 13.1 miles. I think I made a good purchase and I'm hoping I get through the race without any chafing and still have all of my toenails.

I started to have a pain in my right lower leg when I was in UT last weekend. It progressively got worse and was super uncomfortable by Thursday. I still completed my 5 mile run but regretted it afterward. It's a pain on the inner part of my lower leg, that causes me to almost burst into tears everytime my foot hits the ground. I feel it when I'm walking too and it is even sore to the touch. I thought that it was shin splints - but then I realized...if it were shin splints wouldn't it be in BOTH legs? I have chalked it up to doing a lot of hills in UT over the course of two days (which I am NOT used to.) I have rested for a few days and done some at-home remedies to try and alleviate the pain. By this Tuesday I hope my leg is well enough to get back on track. I have a 12 mile run on the 23!
