Runner’s Injuries

I haven’t run in a few weeks.  Tell me why I signed up for 2  5ks and one is on SATURDAY?!?!  I thought I had at least 2 weeks still!  Holy Cannoli, Batman!  I do miss running.  I hope I haven’t set myself up for more injuries or making my existing condition worse.  I am not going to try for a PR at this point.  I would just like to finish.

Anywho, seems like I never posted what I have below from 10/5 (starting at Bah Hum Bug!). No changes to my entry though…I still have no updates b/c I haven’t seen the PT yet 😦

Bah Hum Bug!

I finally caught this running bug and now, I have to go back to walking and running, but not when it hurts (but it hurts right away).

I’ve got the right shoes for my running style and gait.

I’ve got proper insoles (SuperFeet).

I’ve got, probably, an incorrect running form.

I’ve got a pain that shoots up my leg…that comes out of nowhere when I’m going up/down stairs…walking…jogging…changing from sitting position to standing.

Apparently, my “soleus muscle is quite angry” at me.

What does this mean?

It means I need to walk more than run.

Stop running as soon as I feel pain.

Once I get approved, I need at least 2 one hour sessions a week with a PT/Sports Med Doc…

It means that the races I had lined up in October and November are no longer feasible.
