The jury is still out on what caused this. I am going to take another day off from running tomorrow, and then try a short run thursday to see what it feels like before deciding what the weekend is going to look like. I know this totally does not sound like me, but I would rather take a week off now and save myself for the bevy of half marathons coming up in march and april, than to push through and potentially injure myself more. I know, I know, totally not like me at all. I am all for keep pushing.
This could all be a product of my new shoes or it could have been a random occurrence. I am going to return to running in my saucony kinvaras when I start again this week or next just in case. Then we can go from there to see if my new shoes are the cause. I am hoping not but if they are, they are and I have to move on.
Have a great week my friends! Going to try and not go insane from not running but got my eye on the prize and it is long term.
