Good Run, Strange Bump

by - Thursday, June 21, 2007

Time: 31:56 (or maybe it was 58)
Distance: 3.06 miles

I was surprised by how not tired I was this morning when I popped out of bed to go running, but the Metro must make me sleepy or something because I am seriously crashing now. I wish I liked coffee, I could sure use it on a day like today or yesterday.

The run this morning went well. The weather was gorgeous. Temps in the low 60's with a gentle breeze and plenty of sunshine. I don't have anything super special to report about the run. My left calf was a little tighter than usual when I got back so I stretched it a little more, but other than that everything seems to be going well.

One random thought: If you remember from a couple of posts back, when I got hit in the shin with a softball and got that huge bruise that looked like a second knee. Well most of the bruising has gone away by now. There's still a little bit left though. And there's definitely still a bump. Should I be worried about that? It's still a little bit tender to the touch, but it doesn't hurt to run or anything. Any thoughts?

  1. as long as it doesn't hurt when running, i'd still run. you should probably put some ice on to get rid of the swelling

  2. 31:56 sounds "special" to me :) i'm not sure about the bump, perhaps a calcium build up?

  3. As long as it's getting a little better each day I am sure it's fine. If it doesn't keep healing or it gets worse I would go to the doc. I think your run was awesome!
