Anything is possible. Except a marathon.

I'm sorry. I've decided Saturday is going to be my decider, If I'm alive Saturday after 18 miles I run, if I'm dead I don't.

Well I guess that answers my question. You should make an appointment to see a Dr. I'm going to get on your case about this repeatedly.

Who has good Doctor recommendations for runners. Every time I go to a doctor they just look at me like I'm stupid for running that much and tell me to stop. My wife won't even let me go anymore cause it's such a waste of money.

I'm glad the 1/2 is a possiblity for you. I was hoping to come out and see you race since it's practically in my backyard. I'm so bummed at the untimeliness of this injury for you :( You are still in rock solid shape. Just shake the gremlins out of that leg!

Sorry about the persistent pain and tightness Allie. Have you tried getting a sports massage from a good therapist once in a while (i.e. combo of deep tissue, stretches, whatever works for you, target the areas you need, etc).

Way to back it off and be smart. Take it from me, Teena, Nan, Paul R...IT'S NOT WORTH IT! LOL (can you tell I'm a little sensitive on the issue?) :)

I'm sorry about the injury. The Sports Med Dr. I go to is Dr. Toronto but some of the other runners tell me he is not practicing now. I've been going to him for about 10 years off and on and he is the best.

Hoping you manage to get a race in. I get the feeling it is very, very, very difficult for you not to race. And injuries are the worse - unpredictable. At points in my training, I experience pain here or there and wonder if it is a serious matter. And then it's gone...but hey.........now there is pain over in this area. And I pretty much do what you are doing...running through it the best I can and monitoring.
Wishing you well for your race. By the way...I noticed you have some race times with "aided" by the results. Too bad they don't come up with a term for those courses with hills (elevation gain).
Did you happen to hear about the status of the man winning Boston?...Ran it in 2:03:xx and broke the Marathon distance record - but because of the tailwind it was decided it would not be considered a record. Is that still the case?

I hope your legs get better..wouldn't hurt to see a doctor and if you have any sneaking suspicions about what the nature of your injury may be..bring it up and see what doc says.

OH CRAP! I am sorry that something is off, that has to be throwing you for a bit of a loop right now. Whatever it is, I pray it goes away very soon for you.
From Lily on Wed, May 04, 2011 at 23:35:29 from 18.104.22.168
I know the race director. Let's ask him if you can switch it.
From RAD on Thu, May 05, 2011 at 00:13:26 from 22.214.171.124
I would do a pt not a doc, I get the same dumb looks that rob does when I try a doc. I'm sure Teena would have a good recommendation. If you're up for a massage I could hook you up there! I am more than convinced of the powers of massage!

I actually have a FABULOUS sports medicine doctor---LOVE HIM. he is in the Riverton hospital and he is a runner (a fast one, too, and he has written articles in the local running magazines quite a few times, volunteers at finish lines, and so on). He is very honest, straightforward, and thorough. His name is Dr Brinton. 801-285-4650. LOVE HIM.
