And I wasn't pushing it; I wasn't even running! I haven't been doing any exercise, all summer. It's time to get back into shape. I started yesterday. I know I can't jump in and run a mile. Yesterday, I walked for half an hour. That's all.
Almost home and I felt pain. It was in the muscle tissue surrounding my tibia. I've had it before. I recognized it for what it is, i.e., medial tibial stress syndrome--shin splint.
I was praying a rosary, while I walked, too.
Lord, you know my strengths and weaknesses. You also know that I desire to be with you now and for all eternity. Come, Jesus, and fill me with your strength and your courage. Lord, I want to persevere in running and finishing the race with you!
While healing, I won't walk uphill. I might bicycle, but not uphill. Definitely, I'll keep praying the rosary.
