So, the doctor’s visit today was inconclusive. Basically, the leg pain I’ve been experiencing could be due to one of several reasons:

  • A simple pulled muscle
  • Blood clot
  • Shin splints
  • Low potassium
  • Stress fracture

I’ll know more once I get my blood results back, hopefully soon. But essentially the main takeaways are that I have to just deal with the pain, and I can’t run. So much for my summer 5K series. I never thought I would be bummed to NOT run. Anyone got any good ideas on what else to do so I can keep active without stressing my leg too much?

  1. Try swimming! Good resistance without the hard impact. Plus it feels nice when it’s hot out. 🙂 Hope you’re on the mend soon!
