Instead of talking about the weather I thought I’d complain about some aches and pains from running. The current diagnosis for the pain in both my lower legs is something called Exertional Compartment Syndrome which means the muscle bundles are swelling/expanding more than the fascia (the tough, thin membrane that keeps the bundles together) can handle. This increased pressure creates pain, numbness, and a really pissed off demeanor which comes and goes with rest, ice, anti-inflammatories, and chocolate ice cream. I’ll be starting more physical therapy which I really hope works because if it doesn’t the next stop is surgery.
It’s very frustrating. All I want to do is run. I have a feeling Konowa is about to take the heads off a few rakkes tonight. Possibly using only his teeth.
