The Nurse

WELL...

I did call into primary care today and spoke with a nurse about my pains. The cool thing is that the nurse they gave me is also running in the marathon. She seemed to to think my issues are muscle strain, but the only way to be sure is to get an x-ray and take it from there. I have an appointment with an urgent care doctor this evening. She affirmed that what I've been doing (rest, ice, compression, elevation, and analgeiscs) was what I should be doing. She also asked if I had plans to do one more long run before the marathon, but I told her that it depends on this injury. There is a 22 miler scheduled for this Saturday, but I'm probably going to volunteer at that instead.
