Woke up this morning to the right hamstring not happy (see notes from yesterday's post). I have to say that I am extremely discouraged at the continual new aches and pains that I have been experiencing this time around. I mean come on, I know I am not getting any younger but the aches are constant, seem to move around from issue to issue, and I am starting to think that they are affecting my gait which is causing new ones. Is it time to quit?
I am going to go to Marathon Sports in Boston on Friday and have them do a Fit Right test on me. They have you run on a treadmill and look at your how you run, if you pronate or not, your arches, etc... and then suggest the proper shoe for you. After that I will give it a few weeks with the new shoes and see what happens from there.
Perhaps massage or yoga or something else. Anyone have any suggestions?
It's just really getting frustrating at this point. I know, I know; it could always be worse, but enough is enough already.
Funny how this damn sport can take you from the high of reaching your goal (100 mile month goal for October), to the lows of 4 days later, ready to throw in the towel.
Well thanks for listening to me whine, Be well - Sank
