So tell me, is it normal to always have some kind of running-related pain? I feel like if my back isn't aching, my shins are. And when my shins finally feel better, my foot hurts.
A prime example - I've noticed for a long time (a few months) that my shins are ALWAYS sore. Always. They may not hurt during a run, but I'll get home and the kiddo will bump them and OUCH! Then, I'll touch them and realize that they're both really tender. What's up with that?
I know God gave us legs for some reason, but maybe mine weren't made for running. I'm trying to remember by dance and gymnastics days..I know I would be sore the day after a good workout. I remember barely being able to lift my arms after a hard day of uneven bars or walking funny after a long day of practicing tour jetes. But, I don't remember if there was always some nagging little ache or pain. (Of course then, I was much, much younger!)
So, tell me...is this normal? If it is, great! I'll know that I'm not a weirdo and that it just comes with the territory. I'll just be sure to keep a supply of ice packs in my freezer. If it's not, maybe I should consider a different form of exercise.
