Next, I have GREAT news to report. After a rough few weeks of running, I had one of my first post stress fracture pain free runs yesterday!! I'm very excited. It's been a very long road, but I think I might have found the trick: I foam rolled BEFORE the run to loosen up my calves. I've had some pretty bad shin splints as I've gotten back to running and that seems to help. Normally, I don't advise doing that on cold muscles, but I do a few active warm ups before. Works!
The other part of my "solution" is biking. So, Thursday night I hopped on the bike trainer in my house, flipped on
100% real. 100% painful

Does this mug make my PR look big?
Finally a picture of my son. I ran a 4.2 mile race last weekend (report coming soon - probably) and I rode the light rail to the starting/finish line because he LOVES trains. Well, while he likes riding on my shoulders, he also thinks that it is HILARIOUS to smack the top of my head as hard as he can. Honestly? I can't say that I blame him - I would probably do the same thing. Happy Friday! Errrr, Saturday!
