to run or not to run?
So remember that time when I had to stop running because my body was basically starting a revolution against itself? Yeah. Well, I've kinda been toying with the idea of running again. I just felt like I had really accomplished something after every run. Ughh. I don't know what to do. John suggested getting orthodics(not sure how to spell it and spellcheck says it's wrong?). He thinks that will cut down on the pain. I think I really just want to run because it's starting to get nice outside (OK, so today it was nice outside) and again with the accomplishment thing. I don't have a regular workout routine and have kind of gotten into a funk. Must decide something soon. Should I compromise my knees/shins/ankles? Will the pain eventually subside? Last time I was regularly running for around 5 months and once the pain would subside in one area another started acting up. Lots of people run, why can't I run? Experienced runners out there, help me out, does the pain go away? Or should I just give up and find something else to do? It would probably help if I wasn't so cheap and would actually join a gym. I did that once in college and eventually came up with a mound of excuses as to why I couldn't go. Help!
