I'm now having some pain in my right shin (opposite leg of last year's stress fracture). I am beyond annoyed. However, it seems very different from what I experienced last spring. This particular ache is there when I start running, and seems to diminish as I get warmed up (as opposed to the stress fracture, which started as a little annoyance, and quickly went to excruciating as I got going).

We had another great day for Friday's long run. Once rainy, yucky Saturday came along, I was very happy we'd gotten the eight done on Friday.
