It was a beautiful day for running today! The temps were in the 60's! It was gorgeous out! But I had some issues today. I am still really sore under my knees. And while I was running today...it was hurting in that spot on both my legs. I probably should have rested another day. I say that because as I am sitting here typing I can barely walk. My left leg is worse than the right. It is also tender to the touch. It is painful...and I am thinking that is not good. Not sure what is going on but I am going to take some advil and ice my legs.
I am feeling very frustrated right now. I finally found something that I LOVE doing and now I am having some pain from it. That doesn't seem very fair. I am wondering if my muscles are just needing to get stronger. Or (and I know this sounds silly) if I am not running correctly for some reason. I talked to some of my runner friends and they advised that my legs may just be trying to get adjusted to my new shoes. I am hoping this is the case! I am not planning on running again until Tuesday so that gives me two days to rest. Hopefully this pain will be gone by then.
