This was the BEST run I've had in ages....!
I got to run 2 miles with my daughter Callie. She's back from college for a few days before leaving for the entire summer. She will be a counselor at two Centrifuge Camps this summer working on the drama team.
Callie has been struggling with her running....maybe you guys could help figure out what's wrong. About a year ago Callie started having trouble with her feet. She ended up with a fracture in one of her feet (we had it x-rayed), she laid off for several weeks, started running again and then acquired another fracture. After lying off several weeks again she went to a foot doctor who prescribed orthopedics and had them custom built for her. She then began to run with the orthopedics (which she says were very uncomfortable) and things seemed okay for a while. I don't know the exact timing but I believe after a couple of months she then started having lots of trouble with shin splints. These were very painful and slowed her running down quite a bit but to top all this off, now her calves seem to tighten up like rocks when she run. Her runs have been only 2-3 miles each time she runs but if she runs more than a couple of days she basically has to lay off for a week. Today I told her to just take the orthotics out of her shoes and see if that helped. On top of all this, she has been to Luke's Locker and she's tried two different shoes (per their recommendation) to try and help the problem. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
