Just Out of My Grasp Entry 2

In 2008 I began running as a part of my regular fitness routine. I had worked out for several years, but, decided to add 5K races to my challenge. I finished my first 5K in around 46 minutes, not fast, but, I finished. Stubbornly, I began training even harder.

After about one year of running regularly, I became acquainted with the lovely foe, shin splints. I visited orthopedic doctors and received a referral to an awesome sports physical therapy clinic. While rubbing elbows with professional athletes, I received first rate care and it kept my running.

I visited twice a week for over a year.

Normal? Probably not, should I have not healed?

I added triathlons to my list of goals and on May 1, 2010, I finished my first sprint triathlon. What an awesome 40th birthday gift to myself. I was on top of the world.

But still in physical therapy. More doctor visits, sore knees, continued shin splints, lower back pain, and now, possibly plantar fasciitis in my feet.

Sigh.
