The pain in my leg is still here which means that the Surf City Marathon is not going to happen in 2012! I am pretty bummed since I will have to start the Beach Cities Challenge all over again! It is bittersweet for me since I am sad that I cannot run Surf City but at the same time this may be my opportunity to redeem myself in Long Beach this October! Long Beach was such a disaster that it probably should not count anyway!
In the meantime, I am taking it easy and testing my leg out to see what it will tolerate. I did a 45 minutes on the elliptical last night and felt no pain but it's usually in the morning that the pain hits me. So far so good but I really want to try spin and see what happens. I have decided to see an orthopedic doctor to make sure that the Sports Medicine doctor I saw has diagnosed me correctly.
Until then, I will keep hoping and praying and looking forward to getting back out there. With all of the suffering and sad days that I have had wishing that I could run, I should be coming back with a vengeance!
