I had to skip running with Eric tonight. My shins were really sore when we ran on Wednesday night, so much so that I had to stop after 1.5 miles or so. I’m not sure what caused it. Maybe it’s because we run on pavement so much rather than on soft ground or on a track. Maybe I need to stretch out longer before we start. Maybe I need to drink more water during the day. Maybe I’m not getting enough Calcium in my diet. Maybe I need to replace my shoes, as they’ve gotten quite a bit of use in the past 6 months. I’m not sure what the cause is, but I figured I should take a break to see if they get any better.
