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.
