i feel like i have growing pains in my whole right leg. constantly. when i apply pressure to the leg, it's even worse. im not even sure what to think. do i think it is a stress fracture still, no. do i think that it is the nerve, yes. am i convinced that it will heal quickly, not at all.
however, i had a shocking workout this morning. i did 3-mi tempo on hilly pavement around research loop. i split 6:25 (which was so fresh and smooth) 12:37 (i think) and 18:46 (which we picked up with 400m to go). overall i was very satisfied with how the first part of the workout went. then we did 1-mi easy easy (like seriously 8 minute pace) and then on the line immediately to do 1-mi fast. i was behind chloe and simmie for the first 800 meters of the run, then i pulled ahead and ran with simmie. we were really pushing the last 600 meters. it felt so good to get that quick turn-over on my legs again. i finished with a 5:25.
i was very happy considering my leg/nerve situation, the fact i haven't run in a while, and the fact that my mind was just scrambled.
uawa dogs, we CAN do this.
CONGRATS TO ANNA WHO IS NOW OFF THE CRUTCHES,

this is a picture from the MSU invite. it was run on the horse park. it was a mud-fest. lots of craziness going on. 8 laps around a 1k loop, awesome.
