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.

and our daughters will be like pillars
    carved to adorn a palace.

Wow! Not sure on that one. With my orthotics I ran in them just a week or so and opted out of them on runs. I wear them at work. Figured I better get some use out of them cause they are so blasted expensive. I guess you have addressed all the normal questions ....... High or low arch etc..... Pretty frustrating:( I'm not much help.

Running with my kids is always the best! It doesn't matter how fast or far, I just love to run along side them.

The only advice I can offer on the pain issue is that sometimes "shin splints" are just that skinny little muscle that goes up the front part of the tibia begging for mercy. When I started running I had the same issue and did a lot of toe lifts under the edge of the couch or a chair or anything heavy I could fit under my desk at work. After a while they beefed up and haven't bothered me since.

Always a great run when with our kids.

I'm not real familiar with those foot issues so I can't give advice. Why not make a post on the forum, might more eyes and advice.

Hmm, that one is (not surprisingly) beyond my diagnosing abilities. I'm glad you got to run with her though. Agree with Dan that a forum post might be in order.

It was great running with Callie for a couple of day. She took out her orthotics for these two days and her legs seem to be better. She's going to try and continue to run without them for a while. I've told her to only run every other day for a while to make sure her legs can heal and recover after every run. I'll keep you posted about her progress.
