Just a stunning day here in Seattle. 68 degrees and sunshine for what was a beautiful run. First race of the year coming up on Saturday. 20k as a tune up for Boston.

Well, it took quite a while to get my calf/shin warmed up but once I got rolling the 4M tempo @ 5:15 went well.

So the idea was to run 12 easy miles this morning before work. And let's just say that didn't happen. Instead, I was almost hobbling at the 7-mile mark and called it quits. The nagging right calf/shin issue that first reared it's head in Germany got so painful today that I had to quit. Ugh. It's been taking longer and longer to warm up and have the pain go away and today, it just didn't go away and in fact got worse. COuldn't be worse timing with a tune up race scheduled for Saturday and Boston just over four weeks away. I'm really concerned it's a stress fracture. i have an ppointment with my PT tomorrow.

No running today. In fact, it even hurt a bit to walk. The PT couldn't say for sure whether it's a stress fracture but he had this look on his face that caused me some alarm. He referred me to a specialist in Seattle who also happens to coach the Seattle Prep High School track and cross country teams. But in the mean time, it still hurts pretty good and I doubt I will be running prior to that appointment. Good thing I haven't bought tickets to Boston yet.

doesn't hurt to walk today. My cross training consisted of throwing batting practice to my son and walking around the Pacific Science Center for hours on end. To add insult to injury -- literally -- it's 70 degrees outside and perfect running weather. Would have loved to race this morning.
