55 minutes of yoga. 30 minutes of running. there is a lingering twinge in my leg, but i made it through without any onset of actual pain. stopped while i still felt good instead of waiting for pain to set in. a novel idea really.  this is week 5, by the way. ehh.

30 minutes of running. felt slow and out of shape. guess i didn't work hard enough in my XT sessions last week.

60 minutes yoga. doesn't do much in the HR department but it sure works up a nice sweat. 

 20 minutes weights/core

 the weather was great today. so great that i ditched out on my accounting class to go on my run. it's the first class i have ever missed without a legitimate excuse, and i must say it was rather fun. i had already been in class from 7:30 - 3:00, and i couldn't stand the thought of 3 more hours sitting in a stuffy classroom. it doesn't help that my professor is 75+ years old. and let's face it, is there anyone in the world who can make a 3 hour accounting class interesting? i gazed out the window for a few minutes thinking about running in the sunshine and i couldn't resist. it's my last day in that class anyway. it's my own tuition dollars going to waste. i might as well waste them doing something fun. although i did picture myself holding a match to a 100 dollar bill. guess i shouldn't think of it that way, but it's true.

another 5 miler today. maybe i will reach 6 tomorrow.

about my x-rays yesterday: didn't happen. i went to the student health center (because it's free[we will not be debating about health care]) and they were super busy and way behind. i had to get to my next class, so i rescheduled for TODAY!

so today i went in and, as i expected, no stress fracture. i really didn't think it was the case since i am able to run on it, but it was nice to be able to rule it out at least.

mr. doctor says it is a nice mix of muscle inflammation, overuse (i blame FFF!!), and very mild chronic compartment syndrome. and this is all occurring on the left leg --- dec 08 foot injury, april 09 shin spasms, may 09 unexplained leg failure, and now this, all on the left side. something must be terribly wrong with my form when i run.

anyway, the doctor told me that i should be a cyclist for two weeks instead of a runner. i must say i disagree with this, but i will try to follow this perscription as much as i can tolerate. maybe run/bike/run every other day type of thing. i have filled my XT quota for the last two months. 

i'm off to my cave on the 4th floor of the library to tackle a bit of the 50-60 hours of studying i have to do before my giant accounting test on tuesday. first task is to look up the definition of accounting on wikipedia. i'll go from there.

i finally made it to 7 miles today. this is the longest run i have done in 5 weeks. everything felt great except for a bit of tightness and dull pain about 25 minutes in. i stopped and did some calf, ITB and hamstring stretches (courtesy of mr. doctor) and it loosened up and felt fine for the rest of the run.

i guess mentally it was easier for me to do a bit more today because i wasn't so worried about my leg snapping in half with every footfall. 

60 min. yoga later to decompress after my monstrous study session today.

PS: does logan city have snow plows?
