So I'm feeling better, mentally about running. My times are coming down a little bit. However, my leg pain is back I think. And in both legs. The spot on my right leg (where my injury was last time) is a little big below where the pain was before (although the whole injury ranged 10 cm). On my left leg, its a little bit above my ankle on the bone. It's not excruciating and I can hop on each foot by itself with absolutely no pain. I'm really not sure what to do. I took so much time off. I went back to shoes that I loved and didn't give me problems (well, it gave me achilles problems but not tibia problems). I've been stretching. Do I take more time off? If so, how much if almost 6 months didn't work (well, the three races in the 6 months but then 3 months of straight time off)? I feel like maybe I should find another doctor to see if the diagnosis was wrong but even then, what treatment would change? Grr!
